5G NR Non-Standalone Test UE

Fully 3GPP release 15 non-standalone (NSA) compliant, the NI Test UE emulates the full operation of user equipment (UE) and provides real-time performance information when connected to a gNodeB.

NI 5G NR Test UE

The NI 5G NR test UE is capable of emulating a fully 3GPP Release 15 compliant end user device or user equipment.

What Is a Test UE?

Before the 5G ecosystem can evolve, semiconductor, commercial infrastructure equipment, and even service operators must test and validate products and services to evaluate performance, conformance to the standard, and interoperability. With support for 100 MHz of bandwidth and 4x2 MIMO, the sub-6 GHz NI Test UE can be used to test components, subsystems, and/or full base station or gNodeB equipment at every earmarked 5G band in the lab or in the field.

Key Benefits and Features

Early Access to Standards

The Test UE offers standard-compliant systems in advance of commercial hardware, and it is software upgradable as new standards are defined.

Versatile Hardware

Whether you need to perform benchmark tests in the lab or for outdoor field testing, the Test UE is ready for a range of environments and test scenarios.

Visualized Real-Time Analytics

With visualized analytics, you can evaluate link status and performance in real time while creating log files for offline analysis and debugging.
