Anritsu Achieves Leading Coverage of 5G NR Protocol Conformance Tests at PTCRB PVG#87 Meeting

11/22/2019

Allen, TX – November 22, 2019 – Anritsu Corporation President Hirokazu Hamada announces that the PCS Type Certification Review Board Validation group (PVG) has approved the highest number of 5G New Radio (NR) Protocol Conformance tests on the Anritsu 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform ME7834NR at its PVG#87 meeting in Berlin in November. Anritsu validations included tests for Non-Standalone (NSA) mode, Standalone (SA) mode, and frequency bands covering Time Division Duplex (TDD) and Frequency Division Duplex (FDD).

As a result, the Anritsu ME7834NR has strengthened its position as the leading Protocol Conformance Test Platform, providing the best test coverage in the industry, enabling chipset suppliers, device manufacturers and test houses to accelerate the validation and introduction of new 5G devices and services. The conformance tests are defined by 3GPP in TS 38.523 and have been validated on multiple Sub-6 GHz Frequency Range 1 (FR1), and millimeter wave (mmWave) Frequency Range 2 (FR2) frequency bands.

The 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform ME7834NR is registered with the Global Certification Forum (GCF) and PCS Type Certification Review Board (PTCRB) as Test Platform (TP) 251.

The ME7834NR is a test platform for 3GPP-based Protocol Conformance Testing (PCT) and Carrier Acceptance Testing (CAT) of mobile devices incorporating Multiple Radio Access Technologies (RAT). It supports 5G NR in both SA and NSA mode, in addition to LTE, LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), LTE-A Pro, and W-CDMA. When combined with Anritsu’s new OTA RF chamber MA8171A and RF converters, the ME7834NR covers the sub-6 GHz (FR1) and mmWave (FR2) 5G frequency bands.
