CMWflexx is a test platform that offers aggregation for up to eight carriers

Addressing the broad chipset and device testing needs for LTE-A/Pro and 5G, Rohde & Schwarz has created the CMWflexx, reportedly the first test platform to offer aggregation for up to eight carriers combined with 8x4 MIMO for protocol, RF and data performance. The R&S CMWflexx has been designed to build upon the CMW500 family of radio communication testers.

The CMWflexx supports mobile device testing for 3GPP releases 8-15. It also supports carrier aggregation (8CC), higher MIMO orders (4x4, 8x4), complex modulation (256QAM) and unlicensed spectrum (LAA) testing, among others. The unit typically comprises two, three or four R&S CMW500 systems and a CMW controller (CMWC). This facilitates the testing of MIMO/carrier aggregation configurations of up to 32 individual streams.


‘Not only does the R&S CMWflexx allow customers to take advantage of hardware they may already own, but it also helps future-proof their investment with a clear strategy in place to support 3GPP release 15 LTE features and an upgrade path to 5G NR NSA,’ commented Anton Messmer, VP of mobile radio testers at Rohde & Schwarz.

Rohde & Schwarz has also unveiled a new storage solution. The R&S SpycerNode is described by the manufacturer as ‘the first storage product on the M&E market to feature high-performance computing (HPC)’. The system features IBM Spectrum Scale and has been built to meet the scalability and workflow integration requirements of today’s media environments.
