Anritsu has launched a new 5G test platform to help support test development for Qualcomm Technologies’ 5G chipsets. This will help commercialization of next-generation 5G NR technologies, the company said.
Anritsu is working with Qualcomm Technologies to support test development for devices such as baseband chips.
The new 5G test platform is designed for the latest technologies, such as wideband signal processing and beamforming architectures, required by ultrafast large-capacity 5G communications. The all-in-one platform supports millimeter-wave and sub-6 GHz RF tests as well as protocol tests.
“3GPP non-standalone specifications for assuring co-existence with both 4G and 5G networks require an advanced and stable 4G test environment; Anritsu’s 10 years of experience in supplying 4G test solutions will help facilitate smooth and early development of 5G NR”, according to the announcement.
Mr. Jon Detra, vice president, engineering, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., commented, “We are pleased to continue working with Anritsu in order to make 5G NR networks and mobile devices a commercial reality in 2019.”
Tsutomu Tokuke, General Manager, Mobile Solutions Div., Anritsu Corporation, said, “It is a great honor to work Qualcomm Technologies in advancing 3G and 4G communications to the next level with development and testing of 5G devices.”
