With the 5G NR network rollout clearly on the horizon, network operators worldwide are planning pre-commercial network trials or even starting commercial network rollouts. The aim is to overcome the challenge of a more demanding and complex air interface and deliver the commercial and technical benefits offered by 5G.
A 5G NR measurement solution should provide accurate and reliable data collection with coverage measurements, application QoE measurements, and verification of the device interaction with a real 5G NR network.
The data analytics of this solution should comprise the entire network testing lifecycle, from network engineering and optimization to benchmarking and monitoring, and have the following objectives:
- To effectively store, process and visualize big data;
- To gain deep network insights;
- To ultimately build intelligence for investment prioritization based on the most critical factors influencing network performance and QoE.
Rohde & Schwarz fulfills all these requirements from a single source with its end-to-end 5G NR network measurement solution in line with the company’s slogan “Be ahead in 5G. Turn visions into reality”.
