Rohde & Schwarz Offering First Validated IMS Conformance Test Cases for 5G NR

Rohde & Schwarz announced it is offering the first validated IMS conformance test cases for 5G NR that can be used for certification testing according to PTCRB.

Rohde & Schwarz announced it is offering the first validated IMS conformance test cases for 5G NR that can be used for certification testing according to PTCRB. This builds on a previous R&S accomplishment, as the company achieved the industry’s first validations of IMS test cases in 2008.

The devices must be accredited by either GCF or PTCRB in order to ensure interoperability in different mobile networks and cellular devices. According to a company press release, certification is mandatory for any mobile devices to be accepted by network operators. Part of this certification are tests for IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS).

The company provides a comprehensive solution for conformance testing based on the R&S CMW500 protocol conformance tester. In connection with the R&S CMX500 radio communication tester, all test systems can be upgraded for 5G NR.  Software option R&S CMX-KC621X now adds the validated 5G IMS test cases on the R&S CMX500.
