Rohde & Schwarz and Apkudo announce 5G mobile device stress test solution
COLUMBIA, Md., March 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Rohde & Schwarz and Apkudo announce a partnership on the development of a 5G mobile device test solution that ensures optimum device performance in the most demanding real-world 5G situations. Utilizing the R&S CMX500 radio communication tester to emulate the 5G network, the Apkudo Android Device Stress App is designed to stress a device's CPU and process scheduler over a select period of time.
5G mobile device test solution that ensures optimum device performance in the most demanding real-world 5G situations
The powerful R&S CMX500 radio communication tester is capable of testing 5G NR devices in both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) TDD and FDD modes. The R&S CMX500 can support sub-6 GHz (FR1) and mmWave (FR2) frequency bands. The comprehensive test solution enables a unified test environment for signaling and non-signaling testing through all stages of the 5G device lifecycle. The equipment also monitors the temperature of the device to ensure that there is no overheating, which is critical during stress tests.
Benjamin Tseng, Director of Device Analytics at Apkudo, said: "It has been found that non-optimum device designs in the low-level kernel implementation could lead to lock-ups and failures of devices under heavy system stress. The R&S CMX500 provides all the necessary test capabilitie to conduct these tests which ultimately results in more reliable 5G mobile devices."
Bryan Helmick, Product Manager, Rohde & Schwarz, said: "The Apkudo Android Device Stress App provides an automated and reproducible test environment for the R&S CMX500 to dynamically replicate the computational demands on a 5G device under the most trying real-world scenarios. This enables us to better support device OEMs and carriers to ensure maximum device robustness and an optimized 5G experience."
