Anritsu Corporation (President Hirokazu Hamada) is pleased to announce that its New Radio RF Conformance System ME7873NR has achieved industry-first GCF certification for 5G NR mmWave RF conformance tests.
The ME7873NR is registered already with GCF as 5G NR RF/RRM test platform TP250 and has been deployed widely since January 2019 for industry-first GCF-certified Sub-6 GHz RF conformance tests; this new mmWave certification received at the July 2019 CAG meeting will help the ME7873NR take the lead in solving mmWave technical issues using 5G NR mmWave NSA RF conformance tests.
Anritsu is continuing its development of conformance test solutions to help improve 5G technologies and develop the 5G ecosystem.
The New Radio RF Conformance Test System ME7873NR is an automated system for 3GPP TS38.521/TS38.533-defined 5G NR RF/RRM tests. It supports both planned 5G NR SA and NSA modes, while combination with Anritsu’s CATR Anechoic Chamber MA8172A covers all 5G frequency bands, including sub-6 GHz and mmWave. A flexible system configuration allows customers to customize the ME7873NR for specific measurement conditions. An easy 5G upgrade path from the LTE-Advanced RF Conformance Test System ME7873LA is available to create a cost-effective RF test system that meets emerging required test conditions.
