Quick Links

Supported Technologies

  • LTE
  • WCDMA/HSPA/HSPA+
  • GSM/EGPRS/EDGE Evolution

Key Facts

  • One software for all technologies:
    "all under one roof"
  • Flexible software licenses reduce startup costs
  • Parallel measurement with up to 8 mobile phones per license; this saves time, allowing existing resources to be utilized more effectively and saving operating expenses (OPEX)
  • Use of highly accurate, fast RF test and measurement equipment (Rohde & Schwarz scanners) providing many reliable measured values and results
  • Automatic evaluation after completion of measurement by means of integrated replay function or network problem analyzer, which considerably reduces OPEX
  • Automatic identification of GSM interferences, resulting in a considerable OPEX reduction (up to 80% potential savings compared with standard analysis)
  • Unique scanner for GSM, WCDMA, CDMA2000® 1xEVDO, WiMAX, LTE and TETRA in all bands and decoding of broadcast information

Brief Description

R&S®ROMES4, the unique scanners from Rohde & Schwarz and the network problem analyzer (NPA) tool form an all-in-one solution for radio network analysis and optimization.

R&S®ROMES4 is the universal software platform for network optimization systems from Rohde & Schwarz. In combination with other test and measurement equipment such as wireless communications scanners and test mobile phones, it provides solutions for all essential tasks involved in coverage measurements, interference identification and performance measurements in wireless communications networks. Besides pure recording and visualization of test parameters, data is processed instantly and statistics are calculated in realtime.

Currently, the following technologies are supported: GSM/EDGE, WCDMA/HSPA+, CDMA2000® 1xEV‑DO Rev. A, WiMAX (IEEE802.16e), LTE and TETRA. Standard-compliant RF level measurements can be time- and route-triggered over a very wide frequency range (9 kHz to 7 GHz).

Features & Benefits

  • Easy operation with high flexibility

    • Easy-to-use interface that adapts to the user's level of knowledge
    • Ready to use in no time, due to workspaces and projects
    • Easy system configuration with device manager and wizards
    • Support of numerous map data formats
  • Automatic handover and neighborhood analysis

    • Automatic detection of missing neighboring cells during drive
    • Improvement of network coverage
    • Indispensable for a roll-out
  • GSM interference analysis with automatic interferer identification

    • Automatic measurement and identification of interferers from the own GSM mobile radio network
    • Evaluation of BCCH and TCH channels allows fullfeatured analysis
    • Detection of adjacent- and co-channel interferers
  • Numerous application tests (data throughput/DQA)

    • Creation of different application jobs
    • Output of KPIs and the most important network parameters in the form of a report
  • Full overview of layer 1 and layer 3

    • Display of mobile phone activities in layer 3
    • Fast analysis in the case of an interrupted connection
    • Decoding of protocol messages for insight into network configuration
