Industry-First GCF FR2 Performance Test TPAC Success


ME7873NR Assisting Spread of 5G Terminals


Anritsu Corporation is pleased to announce that the company’s New Radio RF Conformance Test System ME7873NR is certified as the industry’s first system to meet the GCF Test Platform Approval Criteria (TPAC) for 5G NR RF conformance performance tests for the FR2 (mmWave) band.

The ME7873NR successfully passed 5G NR FR2 NSA TPAC-compliant performance tests at the July 2021 CAG meeting and is now a GCF-approved test system for terminal certification.

Before achieving this GCF certification, Anritsu has helped develop 5G FR2 RF Conformance Test standards at 3GPP RAN5 meetings.

For the future, Anritsu intends to play a key role in deployment of widespread commercial 5G services by obtaining further certifications for 5G RF/RRM tests.
