Anritsu Corporation announced that the Global Certification Forum (GCF) has approved the highest number of 5G New Radio (NR) Protocol Conformance tests on the 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform ME7834NR at the CAG#59 meeting in July. As a result, the Anritsu ME7834NR has become the test platform that provides the best test coverage in the industry.
The tests are defined by 3GPP TS 38.523 and have been validated on multiple Sub-6 GHz Frequency Range 1 (FR1), and mmWave Frequency Range 2 (FR2) frequency bands.
The ME7834NR is registered with both the Global Certification Forum (GCF) and the PCS Type Certification Review Board (PTCRB) as Test Platform (TP) 251.
Shinya Ajiro, General Manager of Anritsu’s Mobile Solutions Division said: “This achievement demonstrates Anritsu’s commitment to support the mobile industry to bring devices to support 5G NR to market quickly.”
The 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform is a test platform for the 3GPP-based Protocol Conformance Test (PCT) and Carrier Acceptance Testing (CAT) of mobile devices incorporating Multiple Radio Access Technologies (RAT). It supports 5G NR in both Standalone (SA) and Non-Standalone (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 and millimeter wave (mmWave) 5G frequency bands.
