5G NR RF test system formally adopted
Test & Measurement
Anritsu Corporation has announced that NTT DOCOMO has formally chosen to adopt their 5G New Radio RF Conformance Test System ME7873NR platform as its first 5G NR RF test system.
The company has a long history of cooperation with NTT DOCOMO in device acceptance testing, leading to this adoption of the ME7873NR. When NTT DOCOMO connects this new system with its existing 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform units, the company’s device acceptance tests will fully support both RF and Protocol tests, assuring stable 5G service rollout.
The test platform is aimed at 5G NR terminals now in development and supports both RF Conformance and device acceptance tests. It is registered with GCF and PTCRB as 5G NR Test Platform TP250 for 3GPP-specified mobile-terminal certification 5G RF tests.
Further, combined use with the OTA chamber now in joint development and RF converters covers the 3GPP-specified 5G frequency bands, including sub-6GHz and mmWave spurious measurements.
