The 5G Reduced Capability feature (RedCap) introduced with Release 17, is aimed at addressing the needs of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, with 5G technology. RedCap shall support smaller, less complex, and lower-cost components, with optimized battery life for IoT devices that don’t need ultrahigh speed or ultralow latency, and narrower channel bandwidths. Key technologies such as BWP, C-DRX, and OTDOA play a crucial role in network optimization, reducing power consumption, and locating RedCap devices.
This webinar will provide an overview of RedCap technology, market trends and use cases. It will also discuss related test requirements and challenges while developing RedCap devices. A RedCap device testing solution for R&D, conformance, and carrier acceptance based on the R&S CMX500 radio communication tester is demonstrated. A vendor case study will provide practical experiences.
