Anritsu Web Expo ~Test and Measurement~ (2020 Summer)
Anritsu Web Expo ~Test and Measurement~ is a showplace for Anritsu solutions featuring the latest technologies to help solve the testing challenges faced by the communications industry and facilitate future growth.
Networks featuring high-speed and large capacity, ultra-low latency and simultaneous multiple connections are evolving continuously as we enter the 5G NR communications era. In addition to faster smartphone and tablet data connections, 5G NR also has applications in the industrial fields, including automobiles and disaster prevention. As a key infrastructure for implementing sustainable societies, 5G NR is expected to help solve a variety of issues, including reducing information gaps among people, preventing road accidents, and more. Anritsu's measurement solutions help ensure compatibility with international standards as well as communication quality at every stage, including the development, manufacturing, installation, and maintenance of smart devices, mobile and fixed networks, cloud data centers, and more for 5G NR communications.
5G NR Smart Device Development
With the commercial rollout of 5G NR, the demand for engineering resources along with the development of supported terminals is growing. Bringing competitive products to market as soon as possible requires overcoming bottlenecks, such as the acquisition of engineers that have the knowledge of the 5G protocols as well as the scenario creation skills. Applications for 5G NR devices must be validated for normal operation on communications networks, in compliance with standards and specifications. That requires effective testing to confirm appropriate operation even under abnormal conditions, as well as no adverse effects on the 5G NR device operation and performance.
For Developing 5G Applications without Protocol and Scenario Creation Skills
SmartStudio NR MX800070A
The MX800070A software has been developed by leveraging Anritsu's experience in 3G and 4G technologies as well as by listening to customers' opinions to facilitate new 5G NR developments. The Radio Communication Test Station MT8000A simulates operation and control of a 5G NR base station, eliminating the need for specialist knowledge about protocols and scenario creation, assisting customers with validating their existing applications on 5G NR networks, as well as improving device performance efficiency.
5G NR Base Station Development
Commercial 5G NR services are already being rolled out. Both 5G NR mobile devices and 5G NR base stations are needed to make the best use of the fast and large-capacity, multiple-connection and low-latency features of the 5G communications standards. In addition to using the sub-6 GHz frequency band now used by the 4G LTE standard, 5G NR also sends and receives using higher frequency bands at about 30 GHz, called the millimeter waveband (mmWave band). Additionally, the development of devices supporting wideband signals is required to implement high-speed, large-capacity radio communications.
For Cost-Effective Evaluation of High-Frequency, Wideband 5G NR Base Station Signals
Signal Analyzer MS2850A
With a frequency range of 9 kHz to 32 GHz/44.5 GHz and a maximum analysis bandwidth of 1 GHz using FFT analysis, the MS2850A is a high-performance, multi-function, benchtop signal analyzer with excellent cost-performance value. The high-speed and large-capacity digitizer function plus optional modulation analysis function cut the 5G NR evaluation, development and production costs by improving measurement efficiency.
Solutions for High-Speed Large-Capacity Communications
The spread of high-speed, large-capacity communications, such as 5G NR, is creating an urgent demand for installation of more Core, Metro and Access networks, as well as for simultaneous development of devices for high-speed lines. Seen from the perspective of installing and maintaining end-to-end lines, increasing workloads require more efficient measurement solutions (e.g. high-speed Ethernet tests and optical line diagnostics using OTDR). Moreover, the development of high-speed devices requires a high-speed measurement solution both for ensuring that the PC and smartphone high-speed interfaces, such as PCIe®, USB and Thunderbolt™, are standards-compliant, as well as for evaluating the faster PAM4 and 800G Ethernet technologies now being deployed by data centers for next-generation communications.
For Remote Network Quality Measurement
Site Over Remote Access (SORA) MX109020A
Anritsu has launched its MX109020A service to meet customers' needs for remote control and capture of MT1000A measurement results. It is ideal for supporting network I&M, testing communications quality between data centers and evaluating new applications using 5G, such as URLLC, Local 5G, and more. It also has a role in other remote work scenarios, such as the boom in teleworking during the current COVID-19 pandemic.
For Developing and Manufacturing 100G/200G/400G Multichannel Optical Modules
Communications Network I&M
In addition to leveraging the sub-6 GHz frequency band currently used by 4G LTE, 5G NR also sends and receives in higher frequency bands around 30 GHz, called the mmWave band. From the perspective of the radio wave environment, not only are 5G NR signals being added to an already congested frequency bands. Network operators must commission and test these new 5G NR deployments using different methodologies all while ensuring that their existing 4G LTE network services remain uninterrupted.
For On-Site 5G NR IQ Data Analysis and EMF Power Testing
Field Master Pro™ MS2090A
The handheld Field Master Pro MS2090A IQ capture and streaming option captures IQ data at frequencies up to 54 GHz. Providing real-time signal capture, users are able to get unrivaled insight into interference by capturing and analyzing interfering signal bursts that cannot be monitored with conventional swept-tuned spectrum analyzers. Additionally, new electromagnetic field (EMF) measurement enable the monitoring of electric field power levels, confirming that the total radiated power does not exceed government (FCC and ICNIRP limit) recommendations and the site is safe for both the public and installers.
Compact, Lightweight, and Economic CPRI-Based RF and PIM Analyzer
IQ Fiber Master™ MT2780A
The new IQ Fiber Master MT2780A solution is a first line of defense in detecting PIM. This CPRI-based solution conducts critical PIM diagnosis across multiple bands and sectors using live traffic. Cell sites remain active during testing as this instrument uses a non-invasive process identify PIM levels, locations, and conduct RF spectrum analysis to efficiently hunt and debug PIM and interference issues.
