R&S PWC technology for 5G NR OTA base station testing chosen by Verkotan

Verkotan is the first independent test house to choose Rohde & Schwarz R&S PWC200, the first plane wave converter (PWC) technology to test 5G NR FR1 base stations over-the-air (OTA).

The R&S PWC200  is a solution for 5G NR FR1 OTA testing of base stations addressing manufacturers and test houses, who can use it with the R&S AMS32 system software. It is the first commercially available PWC test solution, and offers an unprecedented small footprint.

The R&S PWC200 is developed for 5G massive MIMO base station testing for both production and R&D. The plane wave converter supports a large part of 3GPP certifications and features a bi-directional array of 156 wideband Vivaldi antennas placed in the radiating near-field area close to the device under test (DUT).

Verkotan is the first commercial test laboratory providing high-quality accredited test services for base stations and ancillary equipment after selecting R&S PWC200 solution.
