Mediatek Uses Anritsu’s MT8000A 5G Tester for Verifying Performance of its 5G Modem

MediaTek has announced that they received maximum downlink and uplink throughput from their Helio M70 5G modem, using Anritsu’s MT8000A Radio Communication Test Station. According to MediaTek, the Helio M70 is the only 5G modem with both LTE and 5G dual connectivity (EN-DC), supporting every cellular generation from 2G to 5G. Designed for 3GPP Release 15 compliance and supporting initial non-standalone (NSA) and future standalone (SA) 5G network architectures, the Helio M70 can connect to 5G NR and 4G LTE bands worldwide while supporting High Power User Equipment (HPUE) and other key carrier features.

With its cutting-edge NSA and SA modes, Anritsu’s all-in-one MT8000A supports sub-6 GHz and mmWave RF tests, as well as protocol tests for development of advanced 5G technologies, such as 4x4 MIMO, to increase data speeds in the sub-6 GHz band. The achievement will provide a flexible test platform for ultrafast, large-capacity 5G communications using wideband signal processing and beamforming.

MediaTek’s Helio M70 is among the industry’s first wave of 5G multi-mode integrated baseband chipsets. With its multi-mode solution, it simplifies the design of 5G devices with a comprehensive power management plan, enabling companies to design mobile devices with a smaller form factor, improved energy efficiency and sleek appearance. The baseband chipset is available now, and is expected to ship in the second half of 2019.

MediaTek will also be demonstrating the Helio M70 at MWC 2019, taking place Feb. 25-28, 2019 in Barcelona in Hall 6 at Stand 6C30.
