Maintaining close ties for the development of 5G network test solutions

22-11-2019 | Rohde & Schwarz | New Technologies

Rohde & Schwarz has licensed Qualcomm Technologies' Interface Control Document for 5G, describing the unique messages that arrive from the Snapdragon X55 5G Modem-RF System. For the company, access to these messages is crucial to the advancement of test solutions such as QualiPoc, for example, that captures and analyses these messages for determining network quality and quality of customer experience.


Any type of interaction among a mobile device and the mobile network requires hundreds, if not thousands, of individual messages that are sent back-and-forth that verify all aspects of a mobile call or data session. The quantity and complexity of messaging continue to grow as more features and abilities are added. This trend will continue as the industry starts to migrate from 4G/LTE to 5G.


Hans-Peter Bobst, CEO of Rohde & Schwarz SwissQual AG: "Having early and complete access to the Interface Control Document allows us to develop more comprehensive test solutions faster, providing our customers with what they need when they need it. Our customers can rest assured that any measurements they make with our test equipment is technically accurate and legally grounded."
