Anritsu unveiled a solution for evaluating video quality of 5G devices, developed in partnership with Spirent Communications, leverages the strengths of Anritsu’s SmartStudio NR Network Simulator and Spirent’s Umetrix Video software. This lab-based solution is presented as the world’s first integrated 5G video quality system. SSNR’s flexible network settings as well as its simple reproduction of a live 5G network environment facilitate easy and effective analysis of video quality. Moreover, support for many APIs accelerates configuration of customer’s automation environments.

The MT8000A operates as a 5G Call Box by simulating a 5G base station and core network using a state-machine-based GUI. Users can simulate a full range of 5G network conditions including both Standalone (SA) and Non-Standalone (NSA) topologies at FR1 or FR2 frequencies, all without creating protocol scripts. Testing of throughput, mobility, VoNR, EPS-Fallback, SMS, CMAS, CDRX, and other functions can be easily performed using SSNR’s GUI.

Spirent’s Umetrix Video evaluation system measures the receive-side quality of streamed video contents by scoring QoE (Quality of Experience) using Video Mean Opinion Scoring (V-MOS) from only receive-side. It supports video-streaming services and video-content analysis by scoring the original video without prior display, facilitating faster and lower-cost repeatable design tests, regression tests, and competitor benchmarking.
