LTE RF Test Equipment

This page covers LTE RF test equipments from leading manufacturers mainly used for testing RF portion of the LTE devices (eNodeB/UE). This is ideal for RF conformance testing of LTE compatible UEs. It covers testing equipments from Rohde & Schwarz,Agilent,Anritsu and more. Models covered here are TS8980,CMW500,ME7873L and E6621A.

Rohde & Schwarz


The R&S®TS8980IB and R&S®TS8980FTA

Model: CMW500

CMW500 is wellknown Wideband Radio Communication Tester. It is ideal for testing wireless devices of different standards/technologies as listed below.

GSM Mobile station test
WCDMA Mobile station(UE) test
LTE Mobile station test
TD-SCDMA UE test(Mobile Station Test)
CDMA2000® 1 x RTT specifications for Mobile station testing
CDMA2000® 1 x EV-DO specifications for Access Terminal testing


Model: ME7873L

ME7873L LTE RF Conformance Test System:
This testing platform is ideal for testing both transmitter and receiver characteristics of LTE mobile terminals. This platform has been developed in guidelines with 3GPP TS 36.521-1. It also covers performance and inter-RAT tests(as per TS 36.521-3). Inter RAT tests support LTE to other RATs and other RATs to LTE both. The other RATs include GSM/UMTS/TD-SCDMA.

This LTE test platform supports GCF or PTCRB approved frequency bands. The LTE E-UTRA frequency bands supported are band-1 to band-25 and band-33 to band-41. Special request can be taken for providing support for the un-listed bands.
