Faster 5G Device Rollout with Anritsu’s New Radio RF Conformance Test System ME7873NR
Allen, TX – March 15, 2019 – Anritsu Corporation (President Hirokazu Hamada) is pleased to announce that its New Radio RF Conformance Test System ME7873NR has won world-first PTCRB certification for spurious tests at the 5G NR RF Conformance Test meeting.
Following GCF certification in February, the ME7873NR was certified at the March 2019 PTCRB meeting for spurious tests in the 5G NR Sub-6 GHz Non-Standalone (NSA) mode. Consequently, with most GCF certifications, followed closely by PTCRB certifications, the ME7873NR is now the leading RF Conformance Test solution for manufacturers in Asia, Europe, and North America.
Anritsu is expecting to obtain more certifications for the 5G NR Sub-6 GHz standalone (SA) mode and the mmWave frequency band soon, helping early commercial rollout of 5G mobile network services from late 2019, as well as faster time-to-market development of 5G mobile terminals.
The New Radio RF Conformance Test System ME7873NR is an automated system for 3GPP TS38.521/TS38.533-defined 5G NR RF/RRM tests. It supports both planned 5G NR Standalone (SA) and Non-Standalone (NSA) modes, while combination with Anritsu’s 5G over-the-air (OTA) chamber (CATR) covers all 5G frequency bands, including not only Sub-6 GHz but also mmWave. The flexible system configuration can be customized easily for the measurement conditions while also supporting LTE, LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), LTE-A Pro, and W-CDMA RF tests, as well as carrier acceptance tests (CAT). An upgrade from the LTE-Advanced RF Conformance Test System ME7873LA to add 5G support offers customers a cost-effective RF test system meeting required test conditions.
