Anritsu has achieved leading 5G protocol coverage, with more than 200 test cases now available, with the only other approved test vendor currently validated for 81% of its total. Consequently, Anritsu offers a significant advantage to mobile device manufacturers planning to use the operator’s carrier acceptance tests.
The company also leads test vendors in 5G protocol CAT across U.S. operators with 5G carrier acceptance programs. It is the first test vendor to exceed 300 cumulative test cases across U.S. operators, with nearly a 10% advantage over the nearest competitor. In fact, Anritsu has more test cases than the top two competitors combined.
Anritsu has also achieved 100% coverage of Frequency Range 1 (FR1) and Frequency Range 2 (FR2) RF CAT for the Tier 1 U.S. operator. As the only fully approved test equipment vendor for 5G RF CAT, this leadership means it is the only supplier to cover all FR1 and FR2 RF test cases for devices entering the operator’s ecosystem. Anritsu's 100% coverage across FR1 and FR2 offers a significant advantage over the other approved vendor’s offering (77% coverage).
Protocol and RF, FR1/sub-6 GHz capability is provided by the MT8000A Radio Communication Test Station, which gives mobile-terminal vendors requiring efficient tests with strong cost-performance covering a wide range of conditions.
RF FR2/millimeter wave (mmWave) capability is supplied by the same MT8000A in the ME7873NR New Radio RF Conformance Test System, which integrates the MA8172A CATR Anechoic Chamber.
Protocol FR2/mmWave capability is supplied by the same MT800A in the ME7834NR 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform with the MA8171A RF Chamber.
