EMITE and R&S join forces to support OTA measurements on Wi-Fi 7 and 5G RedCap

EMITE’s over-the-air chambers can now be combined with the latest testing features of the R&S CMX500 one-box signalling tester from Rohde & Schwarz. The radio communication tester offers a wide range of device testing capabilities, supporting cellular technologies such as LTE, 5G NR FR1 frequency range up to 8 GHz and FR2 millimetre wave frequency range up to 50 GHz, including the latest 5G RedCap technology. It also supports non-cellular technologies, including the latest Wi-Fi 7, all in a single instrument. As a consequence of this collaboration, EMITE’s customers obtain a comprehensive environment for accurately assessing the performance of Wi-Fi 7 as well as 5G Red Cap devices.
EMITE’s OTA chambers are fully equipped to handle the rigorous testing requirements of current and future wireless technologies. The next step of the collaboration is looking at integrating test capabilities for NB-IoT NTN and NR NTN, which are already covered by the R&S CMW500 and R&S CMX500.
The IEEE 802.11be standard, Wi-Fi 7, is the next generation of Wi-Fi technology, designed for extremely high data throughput that far surpass its predecessor, the current IEEE 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6/6E). With tens of gigabits of data per second and low latency, it meets the growing demand for ultra-high-definition video streaming, as well as immersive virtual reality and augmented reality applications.
RedCap is a 5G technology defined in 3GPP Release 17. As a reduced-functionality version of 5G, it has significantly lower cost compared to 5G eMBB. It is characterized by mid-range data throughput, low power consumption, low complexity and the ability to support a large number of devices. This makes it particularly attractive for IoT applications.
