Anritsu Introduces 5G NR Fading Tests with Single MT8000A Radio Comm Test Station


Anritsu Corporation (President Hirokazu Hamada) is pleased to announce the September 20 start of sales of its popular Radio Communication Test Station MT8000A with upgraded 5G Protocol Test functions now supporting 3GPP TS 38.521-4 B.1/B.2 V15.0.0-compliant 5G NR channel (TDL) model tests using NR Fading software implementing built-in baseband fading tests.

A fading test simulates the actual radio-wave propagation environment required for development of mobile devices. The previously required external 5G RF fading simulator has been implemented as an internal fader in the MT8000A, supporting either 2CC 4x4MIMO tests with one MT8000A unit, or 8CC 2x2MIMO tests with two units.

As a result, Protocol Test set-up in a fading environment is simpler than previous solutions while elimination of external test equipment as well as compatibility with existing protocol functions helps cut development costs.
