Anritsu Achieves 3GPP Approval for 5G Standalone Mode Carrier Aggregation Test

Anritsu has approval for what they present as the first 5G New Radio (NR) Standalone (SA) test for Carrier Aggregation. The tests are based on 3GPP TS 38.523 and were approved by 3GPP RAN5 working group in Frequency Range 1 (FR1). Anritsu has subsequently also achieved 3GPP approval for Carrier Aggregation testing for 5G NR Non-Standalone (NSA) in FR1.

These tests are available on the Anritsu 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform ME7834NR, registered with both the Global Certification Forum (GCF) and PCS Type Certification Review Board (PTCRB) as Test Platform (TP) 251. The 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform ME7834NR is a test platform for 3GPP-based Protocol Conformance Test (PCT) and Carrier Acceptance Test (CAT) of mobile devices incorporating Multiple Radio Access Technologies (RAT).

The system supports 5G NR in both Standalone (SA) and Non-Standalone (NSA) mode, in addition to LTE, LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), LTE-A Pro, and W-CDMA. When combined with Anritsu’s new OTA RF Chamber MA8171A and RF converters, the ME7834NR covers the Sub-6 GHz and millimeter wave (mmWave) 5G frequency bands.
