5G Measurements | 5G UE Measurements | 5G BS Measurements

This page describes 5G measurements performed on UE and BS (Base Station) or NB. It mentions 5G UE measurements and 5G BS measurements. The 5G measurements cover both transmitter and receiver test cases.

Following are the tests performed during 5G measurements.
• Transmitter conformance measurements
• Receiver conformance measurements
• Measurements during Inter-operability tests
• Network Stability measurements
• Inter-RAT measurements
• Drive test measurements
• Near field and far field measurements
