Press Release:



Rohde & Schwarz and SmartViser Partner for EEI Testing

Rohde & Schwarz and SmartViser have partnered to develop a solution for testing compliance with a new regulation that will require Energy Efficiency Index (EEI) labeling for smartphones and tablets sold in the EU. At the core of the solution is the R&S CMX500, a radio communication tester that supports end-to-end testing of all signaling use cases, combined with SmartViser’s viSer test automation application - available in Android and iOS. Both companies will showcase the solution at Mobile World Congress 2024.


Munich, February 22nd, 2024 — Rohde & Schwarz, a leading provider of test and measurement solutions, has partnered with SmartViser, a provider of active test automation products, to develop a tailored solution for testing compliance with a new EU regulation concerning Energy Efficient Index (EEI) labeling for smartphones and tablets. 


The DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) 2023/1669, published in September 2023, mandates EEI labeling for smartphones and tablets sold in the EU, starting from June 20, 2025. Annex II of the regulation specifies energy efficiency class and EEI requirements, while Annex IV outlines measurement and calculation methods.


SmartViser has been actively involved in creating solutions that help customers ensure that their products comply with this regulation. The company is currently offering the first pilot application, which features a repeatable and reliable test procedure and can be installed in smartphones and tablets to execute a series of user actions, such as calls, browsing and streaming.


To address future test needs, SmartViser and Rohde & Schwarz have paired up and combined their solutions. The R&S CMX500 wireless communication tester supports the latest wireless technologies, including LTE, 5G NR and WLAN. Its energy efficiency testing solution offers seamless power consumption measurements parallel to RF measurements, protocol testing or application testing.


Alexander Pabst, Vice President of Wireless Communications at Rohde & Schwarz emphasizes the importance of energy-saving initiatives within the wireless communication industry: “We are excited that the R&S CMX500 has been selected to be part of the SmartViser test solution. Energy efficiency is a key topic in wireless communications, and we are confident that this collaborative effort with SmartViser will make it easier for mobile device manufacturers to test their products for compliance with this new regulation.”

Gilles Ricordel, CEO of SmartViser says: "We are excited to announce our collaboration with Rohde & Schwarz. At SmartViser, we believe that strategic collaborations are pivotal to driving technological advancements. By combining our automation experience with industry-leading Rohde & Schwarz technology, we empower our clients to offer market-leading products that ensure the highest standards of energy efficiency.”

Rohde & Schwarz and SmartViser will showcase a live demo of their joint test solution for EEI labeling at the Mobile World Congress 2024 at the Fira Gran Via in Barcelona in hall 5, booth 5A80.


SmartViser can be found in hall 5 booth 5B41-4 French Tech Pavilion.
