Brief Description

The R&S®ROMES4 drive test software, the unique scanners and network problem analyzer (NPA) tool from Rohde & Schwarz provide an all-in-one solution for 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, performance measurements and quality analysis in mobile networks. In addition to measuring and displaying test parameters, data is processed instantly and statistics are calculated in realtime.

R&S®ROMES4 supports GSM/EDGE, WCDMA/HSPA+, CDMA2000® 1xEV-DO Rev. A, WLAN (IEEE 802.11a, b, g, n), WiMAX (IEEE 802.16e), LTE, DVB-T, DVB-H and TETRA. Standard-compliant RF level measurements can be time- and route-triggered over a very wide frequency range (9 kHz to 7 GHz). Due to its highly modular structure, the platform can be expanded at any time for new technologies. The test software runs on a Microsoft Windows 7 (32‑ and 64-bit) PC.
