TELEC Formally Adopts Anritsu 5G NR RF Test System


Allen, TX – April 30, 2020 – Anritsu Corporation is pleased to announce that the Telecom Engineering Center (TELEC) foundation has formally adopted Anritsu’s 5G New Radio RF Conformance Test System ME7873NR for 5G technical regulations conformity certification of the Radio Law, and applied it to certification testing.

TELEC has long been an industry leader in certification and testing of radio equipment and provides various services, such as technical regulations conformity certification, and social contribution business. These services are provided in Japan, as well as other countries.

Anritsu, which has contributed to TELEC’s domestic “technical regulations conformity certification” business to date, has provided the ME7873NR as a test system for wireless devices for 5G domestic commercial services, which began in 2020.

The ME7873NR is an RF test platform for 5G NR terminals. While supporting RF/RRM conformance tests and carrier acceptance tests, it also has a full range of versatile functions for efficient RF R&D.

Product Outline

The New Radio RF Conformance Test System ME7873NR is an automatic test system for implementing 5G NR RF/RRM tests in compliance with the 3GPP TS38.521/TS38.533 standards. It supports both the 5G NR Standalone (SA) and Non-Standalone (NSA) modes, and in combination with the 5G OTA (CATR) chamber covers both the Sub-6 GHz and mmWave frequency bands used by 5G. Operators with the previous ME7873LA supporting LTE, LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), LTE-A Pro, and earlier W-CDMA RF, as well as carrier acceptance tests can easily upgrade to the new 5G platform while maintaining a flexible system configuration meeting their measurement needs.
