ME7834NR test Platform from Anritsu and OTA chamber MA8171A.

Anritsu and Samsung Verify 5G NR Protocol Conformance Test in Sub-6 GHz Frequency Range

  • Anritsu announced the submission of the Protocol Conformance test in the Sub-6 GHz Frequency Range 1 (FR1) to 3GPP RAN5 working group for approval.

The test defined by 3GPP TS38.523 has been verified with Exynos modem 5100 5G New Radio (NR) modem developed by Samsung’s System LSI Business on Anritsu ME7834NR Protocol Conformance test system.

The ME7834NR Protocol Conformance test Platform is registered with both the Global Certification Forum (GCF) and PCS Type Certification Review Board (PTCRB) as Test Platform (TP) 251.

This test platform is designed for 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 chamber MA8171A and RF converters, this test platform covers the sub-6 GHz and millimeter wave (mmWave) 5G frequency bands.
