Rohde and Schwarz showcases its vision for the future of 5G broadcasting at MWC2023
Rohde & Schwarz is showcasing its capabilities at Mobile World Congress 2023. At the stand 5A80 the company is live demonstrating 5G Broadcast. It is an end-to-end proof of concept in partnership with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., Spinner, Cellnex, Ateme and the Academy of Broadcast and Science (ABS) in China. They will transmit a broadcast stream across the city of Barcelona.
The new broadcasting technology will not require necessarily cellular bandwidth as it uses broadcast transmission and is capable of being received by mobile devices with no SIM. It brings broadcast and multicast capabilities with high spectral and energy efficiencies, on the words of R&S words.
“This has the potential to transform the way content services are delivered, without compromising existing mobile cellular communications,” said Manfred Reitmeier, VP broadcast and amplifier systems at Rohde & Schwarz. “These are key messages for the decision makers from around the globe at Mobile World Congress and, working with our valued partners, we are excited to showcase 5G Broadcast and its capabilities, ready for commercial roll-out.”
Lorenzo Casaccia, VP, Technical Standards and Intellectual Property at Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. added “We are delighted to support the Rohde & Schwarz team at Mobile World Congress 2023, to show how the delivery of digital TV content over 3GPP standardized technology can look without the need for additional chipsets. We have repeatedly proven that 5G Broadcast is here today, and we hope that as many visitors as possible will experience it first-hand.”
