Anritsu Corporation Introduces O-RAN Radio Unit Test Solution


Efficient O-RAN Radio Unit Evaluation for Deploying Open RAN

Anritsu Corporation introduces the ORAN Test Platform MX772000PC and O-DU Emulator Platform Software MX773000PC solution for efficient evaluation of the O-RAN Radio Unit (O-RU).

The MX772000PC software automates O-RU testing. The MX773000PC emulates O-DU operation to connect the O-RU and execute O-RAN.WG4.CONF tests meeting the O-RAN Fronthaul specifications.

Development Background

Conventional Radio Access Networks (RAN) are configured using communications equipment from a single vendor. However, introduction of Open RAN interfaces between equipment is currently in progress to facilitate construction and operation of flexible expandable RAN at lower costs.

Widespread deployment of Open RAN faces issues with testing compatibility between equipment supplied by different vendors. Anritsu has developed these new software tools supporting efficient O-RAN Fronthaul tests to solve these issues and help deploy expandable and flexible Open Radio Access Networks.
