Anritsu Company has announced the submission of the industry´s first Protocol Conformance Tests defined by TS38.523 to 3GPP RAN5 working group for approval, the company said.
These tests are based on mmWave (FR2) path for 5G New Radio (NR), Non-Standalone (NSA) mode devices. Anritsu successfully passed the test cases using the ME7834NR Protocol Conformance Test Platform in conjunction with a Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform and Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem family from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated.
Verification of Protocol Conformance Tests by RAN5 is an important milestone, as it is a pre-requisite to validation of tests by certification bodies – Global Certification Forum (GCF) and PCS Type Certification Board (PTCRB). This achievement helps the mobile industry expedite device approvals in preparation for the roll out of the 5G ecosystem starting from 2019. With the ME7834NR, engineers will have greater confidence in device performance by ensuring 5G NR product designs comply with 3GPP standards.
