Radio Test App First To Embrace CPRI Standard

Reporting for duty as the first commercially available test application for the Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) standard, the N5120A Baseband Studio off-the-shelf software provides the REC signals necessary for stimulating 3G base station RE. It requires the company's N5101A PCI card and the N5103A high-speed serial interface card for operation. The software supports bi-directional uplink/downlink operation, making it suitable for concurrent testing of receive/transmit functions, and a real-time BER/BLER capability accommodates receiver-sensitivity tests. Users can set up carriers and waveforms to send to the RE (downlink), and incoming CPRI data from the RE can be directed to a disk file, vector signal analysis program, or BER-measurement utility (uplink). Users can also send and receive control and management data to and from the RE. Depending on licensing and test options, prices range from no charge to $7,500.
