Rohde&Schwarz offers a complete test setup for RRH verification based on the R&S SMU200A vector signal generator or R&S AMU200A baseband signal generator and the R&S FSQ signal analyzer. The R&S EX-IQ-Box digital interface module (variant K04) provides the digital baseband connection to the RRH. As a result, the same T&M equipment can be used for tests at the RF as well as for tests via the digital baseband interface. Switching between different tools for RF and digital baseband signals is a thing of the past. The R&S EX-IQ-Box is a digital interface module that seamlessly works with different digital I/Q specifications, including CPRI. It provides flexible digital I/Q inputs and outputs for signal generators and analyzers from Rohde&Schwarz, as well as a digital interface to the device under test (DUT) by means of a CPRI breakout board (R&S EXBOX-B85 option) and the CPRI RE test software option (R&S EXBOX-K10). Small form-factor pluggable (SFP) connections are used for the optical link between the DUT and the R&S EX-IQ-Box breakout board. The test solution covers individual uplink or downlink operation as well as full duplex operation. The R&S EX-IQ-Box is controlled via the R&S DigIConf digital interface configurator software running on an external PC. The R&S EX-IQ-Box is easily configured through the R&S DigIConf software via a USB connection. R&S DigIConf can also be operated remotely via a local area network (LAN)....

Remote radio head (RRH) applications are increasingly being implemented in today's mobile radio networks with distributed base transceiver station (BTS) configurations. Having one baseband (BB) module controlling several RRHs by means of a digital interface - either optical or electrical - enables both equipment vendors and network operators to reduce costs and optimize their solutions. The industry has agreed upon defining co...
