The newly developed RF Regulatory Test System ME7803NR uses the Radio Communication Test Station MT8000A as a simulated 5G NR base station in combination with a spectrum analyzer and signal generator to implement ARIB/ETSI/FCC-compliant FR1 RF tests. In addition, the measurement efficiency and quality of 5G terminals are assured by the GUI and built-in calibration function for improved reliability. Anritsu claims that it’s platform that can perform spurious tests and interference tests, which are difficult for customers to build within their own test environment.
The ME7803NR apparently makes it easy to evaluate whether the RF performance of 5G terminals meets regulatory requirements as well as simplifies evaluation of whether radio-waves are being used efficiently or not, helping 5G market penetration.
Anritsu expects its new ME7803NR to play an important role in deploying commercial 5G mobile network services by facilitating the spread of 5G terminals.
The RF Regulatory Test System ME7803NR supports FR1 RF regulatory compliance tests of 5G NR terminals. It is used with the Radio Communication Test Station MT8000A simulating a 5G NR base station, the Radio Communication Analyzer MT8821C operating as an LTE Anchor, and with various other test equipment and dedicated software to implement required 5G RF Regulatory (ARIB/ETSI/FCC) Conducted tests using 5G NR Non-Standalone (NSA) mode call connections.
Anrtisu describes the primary features as:
- Supports world regional frequency bands – Certified North-American, European, and Asian bands as well as other future regional bands to be deployed (5G NR Bands and 5G NSA mode LTE Bands for LTE Anchor) are supported.
- Maximizes value of customers’ prior equipment investment – Customers can configure the ME7803NR test system by adding their own Anritsu standalone test equipment, such as the MT8000A, MT8821C, MS2840A/MS2850A, MG3710E, MG3694C, etc., to minimize additional required hardware purchases.
- Common regulatory tests – The MT8000A and MT8821C used by the ME7803NR can share SAR/OTA/EMC tests.
- Calibration function for better reliability – The built-in calibration function for use when changing the connection configuration improves measurement stability and measured value reliability.
