5G Deployment Test Equipment Solutions

As 5G networks move from lab to field deployment, field engineers, technicians and contractors are addressing numerous challenges to ensure a successful deployment. Validating 5G in the lab is one thing, but scaling it requires robust and efficient test and verification solutions. With 5G technologies and applications, we are on the verge of some of the most significant scientific and industrial developments the world has ever seen.

The 5G Testing Landscape

New technologies require a new generation of test equipment and techniques to unlock the performance potential of 5G.

Electro Rent offers a wide range of 5G Deployment Test Equipment. This includes solutions for wireless and wireline testing with specific applications focused to support fiber optic installation and verification as well as drive test, cell site support, 5G networks and more.

Fiber Optic Installation

5G impacts all elements of the network. From fronthaul to backhaul, 5G uses fiber optics as a base for new high-speed communications. The transition from copper and coax to fiber plays a critical role in the 5G revolution (beyond LTE). A new generation of testing solutions is required for 5G deployment, installation, and maintenance to accommodate existing 4G infrastructure.

Telecommunication Transmission Testing

As 5G network deployments accelerate, testing must evolve as well. New network technologies and architectures require new testing techniques driven by a growing demand for faster, more responsive, and more reliable networks. For 5G, synchronization and timing are critical to network performance, so accurate and effective testing is critical.

We provide a large number of solutions for Telecommunication Transmission Testers at electrorent.com.

Drive Testing

5G carriers perform live testing of mobile networks to verify network coverage and quality. Drive Testing actively measures traffic channel beams, Quality of Service (QoS), Quality of Experience (QoE), mobility and interoperability. Common measurements for LTE and prior generations include signal strength, transmission power, and uplink and downlink throughput. With the introduction of new frequency bands, we provide solutions for both FR1 (sub-6GHz) and FR2 (mmWave) requirements.

Cell Cite Support

When 5G service providers, field technicians and contractors move from trials to full scale deployment, they need testing tools for antenna alignment, OTDR, spectrum analysis and 4G/5G radio, fiber inspection, fiber verification and coax sweep to make the job easier. From installation testing to FTTA and antenna alignment, we have all your cell site testing needs covered.
