Anritsu and MediaTek are collaborating on Protocol Conformance Tests for 5G New Radio (NR) Standalone (SA) mode devices. The tests have been verified with MediaTek's Dimensity 1000 chipset on Anritsu's 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform - ME7834NR. The Conformance Tests are defined by 3GPP TS 38.523 and have been validated on multiple Sub-6 GHz Frequency Range 1 (FR1) frequency bands.
The 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform ME7834NR is registered with both the Global Certification Forum (GCF) and PCS Type Certification Review Board (PTCRB) as Test Platform (TP) 251 for 3GPP-based Protocol Conformance Tests (PCT) and Carrier Acceptance Tests (CAT) of mobile devices incorporating Multiple Radio Access Technologies (RAT). It supports 5G NR in both Standalone (SA) and Non-Standalone (NSA) modes as well as LTE, LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), LTE-A Pro, and W-CDMA. When combined with Anritsu’s new OTA chamber MA8171A and RF converters, the ME7834NR covers the sub-6 GHz and millimetre wave (mmWave) 5G frequency bands.
Mr. JS Pan, General Manager of Wireless Communication System and Partnership at MediaTek commented that Anritsu continues to support its development project with leading-edge test solutions. Mr. Tsutomu Tokuke, Anritsu’s Vice President stated that their collaboration with MediaTek has progressed and strengthened with 5G NR.
