Anritsu and Orolia have announced immediate support of Assisted GPS (A-GPS) test functionality to meet 5G New Radio (NR) Carrier Acceptance Testing (CAT) requirements for multiple North American operators on the Anritsu ME7834NR 5G Mobile Device Test Platform. As part of the strategic partnership between the two companies, Anritsu leverages Orolia's GNSS simulation capabilities to deliver A-GPS CAT testing platforms featuring the new Orolia GSG-SKY-ANR solution. The Anritsu MR7834NR supports A-GPS, FR1, FR2, FR1+FR2 NSA and SA US operator signaling requirements on the same platform.
The A-GPS simulation component of Anritsu's ME7834NR-based test solution leverages Orolia's GSG-SKY-ANR simulation platform. The GSG-SKY-ANR is powered by Orolia's award-winning SKYDEL simulation engine, which delivers flexible, scalable, and efficient GNSS/GPS simulation solutions. The GSG-SKY-ANR GNSS simulator is exclusively available to Anritsu ME7834NR customers.
Anritsu ME7834NR A-GPS-enabled solutions for 5G NR CAT requirements are available immediately. The test solutions support the rollout of nationwide 5G networks by helping to ensure device compliance and optimum operability.
Shinya Ajiro, General Manager of Anritsu Corporation said that Anritsu continues to address the needs of their customers globally. By partnering with Orolia, a worldwide GPS simulation technology provider, they are introducing a reliable, accurate, and cost-effective A-GPS CAT solution that conforms to operator requirements and delivers repeatable results. Anritsu remains committed to provide the validation tools necessary for mobile operators, device makers, chipset manufacturers, and test houses to verify designs and ensure product performance. This benefits everyone in the mobile ecosystem.
Lisa Perdue, Simulation Director at Orolia said that Orolia is proud to support North American operators through their partnership with Anritsu. Their resilient GPS simulation solutions deliver proven high-end capabilities for critical technology challenges such as the implementation of 5G.
