5G Sub-6 GHz Cellular Test System
The IQxstream-5G is the industry’s first sub-6 GHz 5G single-box tester with 200 MHz of bandwidth supporting the 3GPP NR 5G specification evolution, as well as the V5GTF pre-5G specification. With 200 MHz of continuous bandwidth, the IQxstream-5G provides a future-proof test solution investment as the 3GPP NR standards evolve and new sub-6 GHz spectrum allocations for 5G are defined worldwide (for example, new spectrum in the 3.3 to 4.9 GHz range). In addition, 200 MHz of continuous bandwidth allows for much faster throughput when performing 5G NR carrier aggregation (CA) signal analysis.
The IQxstream-5G supports both TDD and FDD cellular signals for legacy 2G/3G and mainstream 4G LTE, LAA, and 5G 3GPP NR technologies. In addition, the IQxstream-5G can be software-upgraded to support other wireless technologies, including Wi-Fi (802.11a/ac/ah/ax/b/g/n/p), Bluetooth, Zigbee, NB-IoT, and the popular navigational technologies.
The IQxstream-5G supports up to eight bi-directional VSA and VSG ports thus making it ideal for multi-DUT testing of user equipment (UE) applications like 5G NR smartphones and tablets. All eight ports are factory calibrated, which enables a very fast set up in terms of minutes, rather than in hours, as no external switches or combiners are required.
