3GPP TS36.141 defines conformance tests for EUTRA base stations (eNodeB). Release 10 (LTEAdvanced) added several tests, such as those for multicarrier scenarios. This application note describes how all required receiver (Rx) tests (TS36.141 Chapter 7) can be performed quickly and easily by using vector signal generators from Rohde & Schwarz. A few tests additionally require spectrum analyzers from Rohde & Schwarz.. Examples illustrate the manual operation. A free software program enables and demonstrates remote operation.
