					Complete T&M portfolio from Rohde & Schwarz speeds
successful rollouts of LTE-FDD and TD-LTE networks

          LTE World Summit, Amsterdam 2011 — The first LTE-FDD and TD-LTE
networks are being rolled out in Europe, the USA and in Asia. These new wireless
communications standards have extremely high data rates – up to 100 Mbit/s – that
allow high-speed mobile internet access. Rohde & Schwarz offers the T&M
equipment to ensure the rapid deployment of LTE-FDD and TD-LTE. The company
has a complete product portfolio for developing and manufacturing chipsets, user
equipment and infrastructure as well as for network planning, setup and monitoring.

According to Wireless Intelligence, a British market research institute, there will be about
60 million LTE users in China alone by the year 2015. Other significant Asian LTE markets
include Japan, Indonesia, Korea and Taiwan. Europe and the USA are also focused on
deploying the new standard. Rohde & Schwarz provides full-range support for fast,
effective rollouts across the entire industry. Chipsets are already being manufactured, user
equipment is being developed at full speed, and the infrastructure is being built. All these
activities depend on reliable T&M solutions that significantly reduce time to market.

"Manufacturers and network operators want a competent partner they can work with during
every phase of LTE market introduction for all products," says Anton Messmer, head of the
Mobile Radio Testers Subdivision at Rohde & Schwarz. "We have called upon our decades
of experience to advance the development of T&M equipment for LTE-FDD and TD-LTE.
As the leading manufacturer of LTE test equipment, we now offer a complete range of
reliable, extremely flexible, high-speed measuring instruments."

Generators and analyzers for the development and production of RF components,
base stations and mobile user equipment
Rohde & Schwarz offers a wide range of signal generators and signal analyzers to meet
the development and production needs of manufacturers of RF components, base stations
and mobile user equipment. The instruments are used wherever signaling is not required.
The R&S SMU200A high-end vector signal generator and the R&S SMBV100A vector
signal generator can generate nearly every type of standard-compliant LTE signal. The
R&S SMU200A can carry out performance tests on receivers with fading and noise. The

R&S FSQ high-end signal and spectrum analyzer is available for signal analysis and the
R&S FSV for general-purpose applications.

Wideband radio communication tester for developing and manufacturing chipsets
and wireless devices
The R&S CMW500 wideband communication tester is the ideal solution for all phases of
the development and production of chipsets and wireless devices. Its unique platform
concept makes the R&S CMW500 suitable for protocol, RF and conformance tests. This
multistandard platform, which has already established a worldwide presence, supports
LTE-FDD and TD-LTE as well as all current cellular and non-cellular standards. In
production, the R&S CMW500 performs alignment and verification up to 10 times faster
than conventional solutions. The R&S CMW500 handles signaling and non-signaling tests.
Both test concepts are used in production, making the R&S CMW500 a safe investment.

RF test system for conformance testing during the development of chipsets and
wireless devices
The R&S TS8980 from Rohde & Schwarz is a scalable RF test system for developing
LTE-capable wireless devices. The system's smart design, providing both transmitter and
receiver tests, frees manufacturers from investing time and money to develop their own test
systems. Manufacturers and test houses can use the R&S TS8980 to perform general
development tests as well as precompliance and conformance tests.

Handheld analyzers for installing and servicing LTE networks
Rohde & Schwarz offers an extensive line of portable instruments for installing and
servicing LTE networks. The R&S ZVH cable and antenna analyzer offers superior
operating convenience. With the R&S ZVH, installation teams can set up significantly more
antenna systems in the same amount of time compared to the competition. When more
in-depth analysis capability or LTE signal demodulation is required, users can opt for the
R&S FSH4 and R&S FSH8 handheld spectrum analyzers. The portable R&S PR100
receiver can be used to locate interference sources.

Wireless communications scanner for planning and optimizing LTE networks
Using the R&S TSMW scanner and the R&S ROMES drive test software, operators can
confidently plan, expand and optimize their LTE networks. The scanner supports both
stationary and mobile applications. When rolling out large-scale networks, base station

operators and manufacturers will take advantage of the scanner's high degree of
automation. The R&S TSMW also boasts high sensitivity and measurement speed and it
can maintain this speed even when measuring different technologies in parallel.

Rohde & Schwarz continues to pave the way for LTE and its enhancements. 3GPP
Release 9 features such as positioning reference signals are initially supported from a
signal generation perspective. Rohde & Schwarz has an extensive LTE-Advanced program
and has published an application note dealing with this technology. Features such as
carrier aggregation are supported on signal generators and spectrum analyzers.
Multicarrier ACLR measurements on up to five aggregated 20 MHz component carriers are
already possible using basic instrument functions on signal and spectrum analyzer

Description: TD-LTE or TD-SCDMA Long Term Evolution, publicity is a long-term evolution of TD-SCDMA. Really does not matter. TD-LTE is a TDD version of LTE technology, FDDLTE technology is FDD version of LTE technology. TDD and FDD difference is that TD is used in asymmetric duplex frequency is time, and a pair of FDD frequency is used for duplex. TD-SCDMA is the CDMA technology, TD-LTE is the OFDM technology, not docking.
