Anritsu Introduces First Cost-Effective Benchtop Configuration That Supports GCF/PTCRB RF And Protocol Conformance Tests On A Single Platform

Launch of Simple Conformance Test System ME7800L Fills Market Void for Economical Solution to Verify LTE Mobile Terminals

Anritsu Company introduces the Simple Conformance Test System ME7800L that offers LTE chipset, module, mobile terminal, IoT device and smartphone manufacturers, as well as mobile operators and test houses an easy and cost-effective solution to conduct RF and Protocol Conformance tests from 3GPP specifications, including 36.523, 36.521-1, and 36.521-3. A GCF/PTCRB-approved test platform (TP160), the ME7800L and its supported test cases fill a market void for an economical method to confirm LTE mobile terminals can connect with global mobile networks.

By lowering the cost barrier to conformance testing, the ME7800L satisfies the market requirement for an economical and efficient solution that supports terminal certification in applications where advanced, expensive functionality is not required. Its industry-first ability to conduct RF and Protocol Conformance tests simultaneously on a single platform provides engineers with cost and verification advantages. The RF conformance tests support TRx, Performance, and RRM tests. The ME7800L is positioned to be used during the development and quality assurance (QA) stages of chipsets, modules, mobile terminals, IoT devices and smartphones.

Leveraging the industry-leading architecture of the Anritsu LTE-Advanced RF Conformance Test System ME7873LA and Mobile Device Test Platform ME7834LA, the ME7800L brings excellent operability, reliability and stability to economic environments that require basic tests. The popular ME7873LA/ME7834LA have proven track records in full RF and Protocol Conformance testing, respectively, and are used by leading carriers; chipset and device makers; and test houses globally.
