Anritsu Introduces Flexible Test Platform ME7834NR for 5G NR Mobile Device Verification
Anritsu Evolves ME7834LA, a Proven Platform, to Create Efficient New Solution for Mobile Chipset/Device Developers, Test Houses and Operators to Test 5GNR UE
Allen TX – August 30, 2018 – Anritsu Company introduces the Mobile Device Test Platform ME7834NR supporting Protocol Conformance Testing (PCT) and Carrier Acceptance Testing (CAT) of mobile devices incorporating 5G New Radio (NR) technology. The new all-in-one test system provides the test market with a comprehensive verification tool to ensure UE is in compliance with industry and operator standards/specifications.
Leveraging the successful ME7834LA system, the ME7834NR adds support for 3GPP TS 38.523 test cases for all 5G NR network configurations, including Non-Standalone (NSA) and Standalone (SA) modes. The ME7834NR is registered as Test Platform TP251 with the Global Certification Forum (GCF) for 5G test case validations. Anritsu will also register the ME7834NR for PCS Type Certification Review Board (PTCRB) certifications.
The ME7834NR provides the wireless test ecosystem with a seamless transition to 5G, as it also supports LTE, LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), LTE-A Pro and UMTS technologies. This enables current customers to upgrade to 5G from a proven LTE-A test environment. In addition to supporting the existing technologies, the ME7834NR system covers the full range of 5G frequency bands defined by 3GPP, including sub-6 GHz and millimeter wave (24 GHz and above), when integrated with Anritsu’s new MA8171A over-the-air (OTA) chamber.
The introduction of the ME7834NR continues Anritsu’s commitment to provide the necessary test solutions ahead of GCF/PTCRB Certification timelines to chipset/device manufacturers, test houses and mobile operators to successfully roll out 5G NR. The new capability provides existing ME7834 users with an efficient path to test 5G NR products, while still providing valuable and necessary capability to verify legacy designs.
