KDDI Adopts Anritsu 5G NR Protocol Test Solution
Allen, TX – March 13, 2019 – Anritsu Corporation (President Hirokazu Hamada) is pleased to announce the adoption of its 5G protocol test solution as KDDI Corporation’s instrument of choice for 5G NR device acceptance inspection tests. Anritsu and KDDI have a long-term partnership in 3G/4G device acceptance inspection testing, leading to adoption of the Radio Communication Test Station MT8000A for new 5G NR acceptance tests and helping KDDI transition smoothly to 5G service rollout. Moreover, the MT8000A is part of the 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform ME7834NR usages and upgrades will be supported in the future.
The MT8000A is a test platform designed for the latest technologies required by 5G systems, such as wideband signal processing, beamforming, etc. It simulates base station operations for testing the functions and performance of 5G terminals and chipsets in development, and one MT8000A unit supports both the sub-6 GHz and mmWave bands used by 5G. Additionally, combined use with a radio anechoic chamber enables tests of mmWave signal quality and communications procedures in an OTA environment.
The ME7834NR is an automatic system for both 5G NR operator acceptance and protocol tests, as well as for 5G NR protocol and conformance tests. Operators already using the ME7834LA for LTE protocol tests can upgrade easily to the ME7834NR.
