Single-instrument test brings cost-efficient 5G IoT UE verification
Claimed to be the only test station in its class to offer user equipment (UE) repair facilities, test houses and basic UE/IoT developers affordable LTE, FR1 and FR2 support, the MT8000A is a 5G entry model instrument by Anritsu.
The single instrument radio communication test station MT8000A 5G entry model supports multiple radio access technologies (RATs) of LTE through 5G NR. The 5G entry model is claimed to be the only model in its class that can perform LTE, NR FR1 sub-6GHz and FR2 millimeter wave (mmWave) measurements. These characteristics, says Anrtitsu, make it a cost-efficient solution for mobile device developers, repair facilities and test laboratories.
The high-speed performance of the MT8000A 5G entry model means critical testing across numerous test combinations can be performed in a lower timeframe, despite the increasing number of wireless device channels and use cases, says Anritsu. The MT8000A 5G entry model has been developed to support the market need to provide stable and reliable wireless evaluation functions of advanced smart IoT devices at low cost.
It is claimed to be the only test instrument in its class that has a simple upgrade path from low-, mid- and high-range capability when advanced test functionalities are needed.
The all-in-one 5G device test platform supports RF and protocol testing, functional and application testing and beam characteristic validation. It supports non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) mode base station emulation functions for development of 4G and 5G chipsets and devices, as well as mobile services frequency ranges FR1 and FR2. The MT8000A is used for performance evaluation of LTE and NR devices in conducted and over the air (OTA) measurements.
