3GPP's 5G NR will support frequency ranges up to 52.6 GHz, but initial 5G designs will use frequencies below 6 GHz with focus on 3.5 GHz. For sub-6 GHz carrier frequencies, 3GPP currently discusses a maximum bandwidth per component carrier of 100 MHz. The R&S CMW100 communications manufacturing test set with a supported bandwidth of 160 MHz is ready for testing initial 5G NR sub-6 GHz wireless devices in production. The video demonstrates a typical manufacturing test case using a 5G NR-like waveform.
The demystifying 5G video series discusses main topics related to 5G including requirements, timeline, potential frequency and waveform candidates.
