LG U+ Adopts MT1000A for 5G Service Network Measurements for Early 5G Mobile Network Rollout


Anritsu Corporation (President Hirokazu Hamada) is pleased to announce that Korean operator LG U Plus (LG U+) has decided to use Anritsu’s Network Master™ Pro MT1000A supporting speeds up to 100 Gbps for 5G service. LG U+ is promoting the expansion of mobile backhaul and fronthaul networks for 5G services using the MT1000A.

LG U+ was one Korean mobile network operator to offer LTE, as well as other general services over optical, IP, and cable networks. As part of this new 5G service expansion, LG U+ examined introduction of a mobile network measuring instrument with a 100G interface. With support for the newest 5G mobile network eCPRI and RoE (IEEE1914.3) standards, Anritsu’s MT1000A enjoys an excellent reputation with many global operators, leading to LG U+’s approval of the MT1000A versatile functionality for mobile network deployment.

Anritsu is focusing its efforts on further MT1000A development to help early deployment of commercial 5G mobile network services with better service quality and lower installation and maintenance (I&M) costs.

MT1000A Outline

The portable MT1000A is designed for evaluating the transmission quality of various communications networks with speeds ranging from 10 Mbps to 100 Gbps. In addition to supporting standard network evaluations, such as RFC2544 and Y.1564 tests, it also supports OTN and SDH/SONET tests, as well as CPRI and OBSAI tests used by mobile networks. Moreover, it has an interface for the eCPRI/RoE (IEEE1914.3) standard expected to be adopted by 5G mobile networks.

Combining the MT1000A with the optional High Performance GPS Disciplined Oscillator MU100090A offers precision time synchronization tests based on GPS time data, as well as one-way delay measurements between two remote MT1000A units. Offering these test items as optional add-ons helps control initial capital equipment costs.
