Anritsu Upgrades MT8870A with LTE-V2X Functions

  • Performs fast and fully automatic, non-signalling-based tests
  • Assists in accelerating C-V2X service commercialisation

Anritsu Corporation has released two new software options: LTE-V2X Tx Measurement MX887068A and LTE-V2X Waveforms MV887068A, for its Universal Wireless Test Set MT8870A to measure RF characteristics of 3GPP-compliant LTE-V2X (PC5) devices. This will help facilitate the smooth rollout of cellular-V2X commercialisation.

Installing the new options in the MT8870A enables the LTE-V2X TRx to perform fast and fully automatic, non-signalling-based tests. Moreover, users already using the MT8870A can extend its functionality simply by installing this software to help hold-down equipment investment.

Capabilities for automotive solution

The new software expands the capabilities of the Universal Wireless Test Set MT8870A, which is designed for the mass-production test of multi-standard wireless systems. In addition to LTE-V2X and IEEE 802.11p (DSRC) for automotive solution, the test set also supports the latest 5G sub-6 GHz, LTE, NB-IoT, Cat-M, WLAN and Bluetooth standards. With four TRX measurement modules installed in the MT8870A, four DUTs (devices under test) can be connected and measured simultaneously. Different wireless systems can be measured in parallel, as well, helping reduce measurement time and product line test equipment footprint.


Anritsu’s MT8870A solution increases the mass-production of V2X devices and chipsets and helps to accelerate C-V2X service commercialisation.

Target Markets: Automotive chipset vendors, module vendors
Applications: Physical layer (RF) tests of V2X products and devices
