Rohde & Schwarz, MediaTek Validate 5G RedCap Rel. 17 via R&S CMX500 OBT


Rohde & Schwarz cooperated with MediaTek to validate 3GPP Release 17’s RedCap for future 5G standalone devices. R&S CMX500 OBT tester supports RedCap and Release 17 capabilities. Rohde & Schwarz and MediaTek confirm successful 5G RedCap verification utilizing R&S CMX500 signaling tester, enabling MediaTek to thoroughly examine its final devices.

5G RedCap enables mid-tier eMTC, bridging IoT standards and 5G. Tailored for mid-tier use cases, RedCap modems are simpler, energy-efficient, and operate in standalone mode.

R&S CMX500 supports 5G RedCap and Release 17 capabilities, simplifying MediaTek’s RedCap certification for network access, BWP, power-saving, and protocol signaling. The R&S CMX500 wireless communication tester provides one-box tester configuration for complete 5G NR testing, encompassing all important frequencies and network deployments.

The R&S CMX500 accelerates the 5G device product lifecycle by encompassing RF tests, signaling, and compliance stages, ensuring a single testing environment.
