Rohde & Schwarz introduce new signal analysis options to support IEEE 802.11p

Published: 29th November 2013

Rohde & Schwarz has expanded the functionality of its FSV and FSW signal and spectrum analysers to support the IEEE 802.11p wireless standard. The new FSV-K91p and FSW-K91p options are designed specifically for IEEE 802.11p compliant signal analysis in vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) applications and intelligent transport systems

With these new software options, the FSV and FSW are ideal for developers of vehicular communications components, modules and systems. They can perform spectrum measurements in line with IEEE 802.11p and analyse the modulation quality of the signals. Predefined spectrum masks can be used to verify that the transmitted signal is ETSI/FCC compliant.

The FSW features top RF performance, making it ideal for complex development tasks. The FSV is a powerful analyser for development and production.

In future years, intelligent transport systems (ITS) will help reduce traffic congestion and improve road safety. The IEEE 802.11p wireless standard is used for communications between vehicles and also between vehicles and infrastructure e.g. traffic lights, signs and traffic management systems.

IEEE 802.11p regulates wireless access in vehicular environments (WAVE) and also specifies stringent requirements in terms of spectral purity and permissible adjacent channel power. It operates in the licensed ITS band from 5.85 GHz to 5.925 GHz.
