Test platform from Anritsu supports Qualcomm’s 5G chipset development
Anritsu offers a 5G test platform to help support test development for Qualcomm Technologies’ 5G chipsets.
Anritsu is working with Qualcomm Technologies to support test development for devices such as baseband chips. Its test platform for 5G is designed to support Qualcomm Technologies in its effort to commercialise next generation 5G NR technologies.
Anritsu believes that by offering measurement solutions supporting early deployment of 5G services, it will play a key role in the transition from 4G LTE to 5G systems.
Anritsu designed its 5G test platform for the latest technologies, such as wideband signal processing and beamforming architectures, required by fast, large-capacity 5G communications.
The all-in-one platform supports millimeter-wave and sub-6GHz RF tests as well as protocol tests.
The 3GPP non-standalone specifications for co-existence with both 4G and 5G networks require an advanced and stable 4G test environment. Anritsu has supplied 4G test for over 10 years. Jon Detra, vice president, engineering, Qualcomm Technologies, said: “We are pleased to continue working with Anritsu in order to make 5G NR networks and mobile devices a commercial reality in 2019.”
Qualcomm envisions 5G as the next big change in cellular technology, spurring a new era of intelligent, connected devices and enabling new opportunities in connected cars, remote delivery of health care services, and the IoT, including smart cities, smart homes, and wearables.
Anritsu has provided communications solutions for more than 120 years. The company’s test and measurement solutions include wireless, optical, microwave/RF and digital instruments, operations support systems and solutions that can be used during R&D, manufacturing, installation, and maintenance. Anritsu also provides precision microwave/RF components, optical devices, and high-speed devices for design into communication products and systems. With the addition of OSS monitoring solutions it has expanded its offering to existing and next-generation wireline and wireless communication systems and service providers.
