Industry’s First RF Conformance System for 5G NR mm-Wave Testing

Anritsu Corporation has announced that its New Radio RF Conformance System ME7873NR has achieved industry-first GCF certification for 5G NR mm-Wave RF conformance tests.

The ME7873NR is already registered with GCF (Global Certification Forum) as its 5G NR RF/RRM test platform TP250 and has been deployed widely since January 2019 for GCF-certified Sub-6 GHz RF conformance tests. This new mm-Wave certification received at the July 2019 CAG meeting will enable the ME7873NR take the lead in solving mm-Wave technical issues using 5G NR mm-Wave NSA RF conformance tests.

The New Radio RF Conformance Test System ME7873NR is an automated system for 3GPP TS38.521/TS38.533-defined 5G NR RF/RRM tests. It supports both planned 5G NR SA and NSA modes, while combination with Anritsu’s CATR Anechoic Chamber MA8172A covers all 5G frequency bands, including sub-6 GHz and mm-Wave. A flexible system configuration allows customers to customize the ME7873NR for specific measurement conditions. An easy 5G upgrade path from the LTE-Advanced RF Conformance Test System ME7873LA is available to create a cost-effective RF test system that meets emerging required test conditions.

Anritsu is continuing its development of conformance test solutions to help improve 5G technologies and develop the 5G ecosystem.
