Promoting 5G NR Certification with 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform ME7834NR for Early Commercial 5G Service Rollout
Anritsu Corporation has partnered with Bureau Veritas Customer Products Service division, Electrical & Electronic Business Line in Taiwan for 5G NR GCF and PTCRB conformance testing using Anritsu’s 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform ME7834NR.
Bureau Veritas, a worldwide-leading testing, inspection and certification organization, Electrical & Electronic laboratory in Taiwan operate professionally proved by mobile terminal certification organizations, such as GCF and PTCRB. By adopting the new ME7834NR 5G NR protocol test system, Bureau Veritas is cooperating with Anritsu in obtaining GCF and PTCRB conformance test certifications (test platform validation), helping accelerate Anritsu’s activities in 5G NR protocol testing.
The ME7834NR is a protocol test platform for 5G NR currently under development and supports protocol conformance and carrier acceptance inspection tests. It is registered with GCF and PTCRB as the 5G NR test platform TP251 and is designed for certification of mobile terminals using 3GPP-compliant 5G protocol tests and will also be used for PTCRB certifications.
5G is heading towards a new generation of cellular network. Anritsu is now synergizing with Bureau Veritas to collaborate with varied test certification bodies to facilitate growth of the 5G NR conformance test market and early commercial rollout of 5G NR communications services by bringing a stable and high-quality conformance test system to market.
The 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform ME7834NR has both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) 5G NR test modes for supporting 3GPP TS 38.523 protocol tests recommended for use at mobile operator acceptance testing. Additionally, combining it with new OTA chambers and RF converters designed for 5G covers the frequency bands, including sub-6 GHz and millimeter-wave used by 5G.
The ME7834NR is based on the ME7834LA supporting protocol conformance tests of LTE, LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), LTE-A Pro, and previous W-CDMA communications terminals as well as mobile-operator acceptance testing. Customers with these test systems can easily upgrade to systems supporting 5G while relying on their tried and trusted LTE-A test environment.
