German test and measurement company Rohde & Schwarz announced it will showcase a set of solutions for 5G-Advanced and 6G technology at the upcoming MWC Barcelona 2024.
The company will exhibit test solutions that enable applied research – for example, in the Terahertz range in the D-Band (110 to 170 GHz).
Among these demos, Rohde & Schwarz will display the new R&S SFI100A wideband IF vector signal generator. The instrument for demanding applications features an RF modulation bandwidth of up to 10 GHz and generates fully calibrated IF signals.
Also, in collaboration with NVIDIA, Rohde & Schwarz advanced its hardware-in-the-loop test bed for a neural receiver and added custom modulation capabilities.
“This demonstration extends the idea of an AI-native air interface concept for 6G technology, which both companies already introduced during last year’s MWC event. It now encompasses both the receiver and the transmitter side, marking a significant leap in exploring AI’s potential in future wireless communications,” the company explained in a press release.
The company said that a large part of its booth will be dedicated to solutions that enable the mobile ecosystem and empower next-generation connectivity. Visitors will experience the transition from 5G to 5G Advanced through demonstrations of the R&S CMX500 one-box 5G signalling tester (OBT) and other state-of-the-art radio communication testers.
Besides 6G, Rohde & Schwarz will also feature solutions for fields such as Open RAN, Non-Terrestrial Networks, automotive connectivity, and others.
