RWC5020A LoRa Tester is a compact all-in-one tester, providing a perfect solution for test and measurement of LoRaWAN™ technology, which is fully suitable for R&D, QC, and manufacturers. It provides various test functions that can be performed in signaling mode, e.g. including activation procedures, as well as non-signaling mode. Automated PC software will help users test and debug their devices by performing pre-certification tests, as specified by LoRa Alliance™.

3 Operational Modes

Operational Modes

Link Analyzer

Analyzing frames for MAC/PHY analysis

RWC5020A provides a function of Link Analyzer for EDT and GWT. Link Analyzer in EDT (or GWT) helps to create a link between RWC5020A and an End Device (or Gateway/Server) Under Test and to analyze the protocol messages.

Transmission of MAC commands :

mac_commands

send MAC commands to your device and check how it works and responds

  • multiple MAC commands in a single frame
  • all MAC commands defined in LoRaWAN™ with user-configurable parameters
  • field selection: frame payload or frame options
  • message type selection: confirmed or unconfirmed
  • user defined message: editable payload data and port field

Power vs. Time

Continuously monitoring TX power of DUT with respect to data rates(SF)

RWC5020A provides a function of Power vs. Time measurement for EDT and GWT. Power vs. Time measurement in EDT (or GWT) helps to create a link between RWC5020A and an End Device (or Gateway/Server) Under Test and to measure the received power with respect to data rates.

Power vs. Channel

Continuously monitoring TX power of DUT with respect to channels

RWC5020A provides a function of Power vs. Channel measurement for EDT and GWT. Power vs. Channel measurement in EDT (or GWT) helps to create a link between RWC5020A and an End Device (or Gateway/Server) Under Test and to measure the received power with respect to RF channels.

Receiver Sensitivity

Finding the minimum power level which DUT can receive frames from the Tester

Receiver Sensitivity is a function of testing the receiver performance of DUT. RWC5020A sweeps its power level from the start value to the stop value with the step value and checks whether DUT functions properly, and stops immediately after DUT does not function properly.

Signal Generator

Transmiting LoRa test frames/CW

Signal Generator is a function of transmitting the defined test waveform to DUT repeatedly. Two different modes are provided; LoRa and CW. Especially in case of LoRa mode, various parameters are configurable to compose a LoRa test frame.

Signal Analyzer

Measuring received power in NST

Signal Analyzer is a function of analyzing LoRa frames received from DUT repeatedly. Various parameters are configurable to receive a LoRa test frame.

Key Features

lorawan

Confirming that the end device meets the functional requirements of the LoRaWAN™ protocol specification

RWC5020A certification test is recommended for purpose of pre-qualification. Some of certification test items could be limited or not fully covered due to the limitation of maximum number of channels supported simultaneously.
