G NR base station analysis

In 5G NR, the concept of the “beam” is defined. The SSB is sent in a period of 20ms (default), and 8 (or 4) SSBs are transmitted in the first 5ms of each 20ms. Each SSB represents a Beam and is sent to a different direction. E8900A can test the physical cell ID (PCI) of the base station and the beam ID and power (SS-RSRP) of the current location.

5G NR drive test

  • The 5G NR drive test can test the signal intensity coverage of the 5G base station, and the 5G road test is divided into indoor test and outdoor drive test.

  • The parameters such as PCI, Beam ID and SS-RSRP obtained at each test point are automatically saved.
