The 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform ME7834NR is validated after passing the 5G New Radio (NR) Protocol Conformance tests
Anritsu Corporation has announced that the PTCRB (PCS Type Certification Review Board) Validation group (PVG) has agreed that the highest number of 5G New Radio (NR) Protocol Conformance tests on Anritsu’s 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform ME7834NR at their PVG#88 meeting in February have been approved in the PTCRB#103 meeting in March.
These validations included tests for Non-Standalone (NSA) mode, Standalone (SA) mode and frequency bands covering Time Division Duplex (TDD) and Frequency Division Duplex (FDD). As a result, the Anritsu ME7834NR has strengthened itself as a Protocol Conformance Test Platform that provides the best test coverage in the industry enabling chipset suppliers, device manufacturers and test houses to accelerate the certification and the introduction of new 5G devices and services.
The conformance tests are defined by 3GPP in TS 38.523, and have been validated on multiple Sub-6 GHz Frequency Range 1 (FR1) and millimetre-wave (mmWave) Frequency Range 2 (FR2) 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. The ME7834NR is a test platform for the 3GPP-based Protocol Conformance Test (PCT) and Carrier Acceptance Testing (CAT) of mobile devices incorporating Multiple Radio Access Technologies (RAT). It supports 5G NR in both Standalone (SA) and Non-Standalone (NSA) mode in addition to LTE, LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), LTE-A Pro, and W-CDMA. When combined with Anritsu’s OTA RF Chamber MA8171A and RF converters, the ME7834NR covers the Sub-6 GHz and mmWave 5G frequency bands.
