SGS Goes with R&S Equipment, Expands Testing Capabilities

SGS, the world leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, has selected the Rohde & Schwarz R&S TS8980FTA-2 and R&S CMW500 wireless test platforms for industry conformance and carrier acceptance testing supporting key technologies including:

  • LTE FDD and TDD Release 8, 9 and 10
  • carrier aggregation
  • eCID
  • E911 over IMS

Wireless carriers and mobile device manufacturers are constantly looking for ways to differentiate themselves in today’s highly competitive market. With data traffic on the rise, more applications running over IP and an increase in services requiring geo-localization, utilizing spectrum efficiently is more important than ever. New technologies and features around carrier aggregation, voice over LTE (VoLTE) and location based services (LBS) are poised to make a significant impact in the near future. But even as these advances in wireless technology are adopted, the legacy 2G & 3G technologies of the past must still be supported and tested. This expanded scope of testing requires equipment that can support legacy, current and next generation conformance and carrier acceptance requirements.
