Company History

Anritsu Company is the American subsidiary of Anritsu Corporation, a global provider of innovative communications solutions for more than 110 years. Anritsu is a global leader in the telecommunications, optical and wireless industries through its diverse product offerings ranging from test and measurement solutions to high-speed devices and components for use in R&D, production and maintenance.

Since incorporating in 1895, Anritsu has been leading the way in innovation. Among the company’s advances are the world’s first 43.5 GHz 4-channel ultra high-speed error detector, and the V and K connectors. Innovation has stretched into the field, as Anritsu introduced the Site Master™ handheld cable and antenna analyzer nearly a decade ago, which redefined the field measurement market.

Those market innovations have helped Anritsu grow through the years and the company now has more than 3,900 employees and is represented in 90 countries for a global presence. Manufacturing is done in Morgan Hill, CA; Atsugi, Japan; and Stevenage, England. US sales headquarters are in Richardson, TX. Additional sales and service offices are within the US, as well as in Canada, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Japan.

Company Today

A commitment to developing test and measurement solutions for Next Generation Networks (NGNs) is evident in Anritsu’s present product offering. Anritsu unveiled the first operational LTE signaling analyzer earlier this year when its MD8430A conducted 100 Mbps downlink demonstrations at CTIA. Anritsu was also the first company to release field test solutions for Fixed and Mobile WiMAX, and is working with partners to develop other instruments used in the development, manufacturing, deployment and maintenance of NGNs.

Holding a market leadership position is nothing new for Anritsu. Its handheld cable and antenna analyzers are now the de facto industry standard for base station deployment, installation and maintenance. Anritsu has also been the market leader in Bluetooth test for years.

Anritsu continues to be one of the leading test and measurement suppliers to the Department of Defense (DoD) and other branches of the US government, and to the contractors supporting them. As commercial wired and wireless technologies migrate into government applications, Anritsu is leveraging its worldwide industry leadership to provide a full complement of solutions supporting core programs in the Global Information Grid, including MUOS, FCS, and JTRS, and the Department of Homeland Security.
