Anritsu's New Solution Supports RF/Protocol Conformance Tests for LTE Deployments

Anritsu has launched the ME7800L, a Conformance Test System, that enables simple and cost-effective RF and Protocol conformance tests of 3GPP-compliant LTE mobile terminals in one simple package. Anritsu had previously introduced the ME7873LA (RF) and ME7834LA (Protocol) conformance testing solutions for the Mobile Terminals Industry. These systems focused on early support for conformance tests for advanced technologies such as LTE-A. The new ME7800L system is a natural evolution of the previously introduced systems, providing a new concept in 3GPP device certification testing.

The widespread deployment of LTE modules and terminals is creating new requirements. Manufacturers are looking reduce time & the cost of their regression tests, looking for a low cost route for the conformance testing of their mid-range products. Operators are looking for a cost-effective test system incorporating just the key required test functions. The ME7800L Simple Conformance Test System is the test industry’s solution to these new needs.

As launch and deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) ramps up, there is also a need for a lower cost route to device/module certification, matching to the target cost of the devices and associated development costs. Such a solution is enabled by having a capability and test coverage that is optimized for such IoT certification requirements. An optimized solution also gives a faster time to market, with RF, RRM, and Protocol testing all completed on a single test platform.  

The ME7800L provides cost-effective LTE RF and Protocol conformance testing, incorporating all the hardware and software for LTE basic function tests in one convenient package. Both RF and Protocol conformance tests can be run simultaneously, while the RF conformance tests support TRx, performance, and RRM tests. The ME7800L is a GCF/PTCRB-approved conformance test system following 3GPP standards.

Key Features:

Cost-effective LTE RF and protocol conformance testing

It incorporates all the hardware and software for LTE basic function tests in one convenient package, lowering the barrier to introducing conformance testing. Both RF and protocol conformance tests can be run simultaneously while the RF conformance tests support TRx, performance, and RRM tests.

GCF/PTCRB-approved conformance test system following 3GPP standards

Like the ME7873LA and ME7834LA, the ME7800L is a GCF/PTCRB-approved test system and all its supported test cases are approved by GCF/PTCRB.

Both the RF and protocol tests follow the 3GPP standards.

Target Markets: LTE-chipset, module, mobile-terminal, and smartphone manufacturers; communications operators; test houses

Applications: Development and QA of chipsets, modules, mobile terminals, and smartphones.
