Anritsu Company announces support for LTE-A 3 Carrier Aggregation (3CA) Carrier Acceptance Test (CAT) requirements. The ME7834LA is a scalable GCF, PTCRB, and carrier-validated test system that enables certification of 3G and LTE devices to industry and carrier standards. It provides test coverage for 3GPP 36.523 as well as a wide portfolio of CAT test plans across multiple operators. For existing users of the ME7834L platform, an upgrade path is available with support.
Anritsu Co. expands its Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Measurement System with the introduction of isotropic antennas that provide frequency coverage from 9 kHz to 6 GHz. Compatible with certain LMR Master™, Spectrum Master™, and Cell Master™ handheld analyzers, the new antennas support measurements of EMF radiation to ensure wireless networks are in compliance with various national standards for personal safety established by government regulatory authorities.
Anritsu Co. enhances its MN4765B series of O/E modules for the MS4640B VectorStar® Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) family that creates a cost-effective and flexible solution for measuring 56 Gb/s components and transceivers used in telecommunications and data communications applications. The MN4765B module, combined with the MS4640B VNA, provides a simplified approach for optoelectronic measurements and is an economical alternative to conventional total-system approaches currently used in R&D and manufacturing environments.
Anritsu Co. announces that it has extended the frequency coverage of its MS46322A Series ShockLine™ Economy Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) and MS46122A Series ShockLine Compact VNAs to 43.5 GHz. By supporting the higher frequency, the low-cost VNAs can efficiently conduct S-parameter and time domain measurements on RF and microwave passive devices up to 43.5 GHzin a variety of cost-sensitive engineering, manufacturing and university testing applications.
Anritsu introduces a CPRI RF measurement option for its BTS Master™ handheld base station analyzer family that can significantly reduce the operational expense associated with troubleshooting interference at base stations. The BTS Master-based CPRI RF measurement test set allows field engineers and technicians to conduct accurate RF measurements on remote radio heads (RRHs) while remaining at ground level.
Anritsu Co. announces that its ME7873LA LTE-Advanced RF Conformance Test System has obtained the world's first LTE 3CA PTCRB certification. By obtaining PTCRB certification for 3CA, the ME7873LA supports deployment of LTE 3CA downlink, expected to be available in North America by the end of the year.
Anritsu Co., the global leader who introduced the first handheld wireless network analyzer 20 years ago, ushers in a new era of field wireless testing with the introduction of Remote Spectrum Monitor, a platform of modular and scalable products that helps operators generate a greater return on their multi-billion dollar spectrum investments and maximizes network capacity to meet consumer demand.
Anritsu Co. announces PCTEST Engineering Laboratory Inc. has acquired all elements of Anritsu’s leading LTE Enhanced Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Services (eMBMS) test portfolio, including eMBMS RF Performance test cases on Anritsu’s ME7873L RF/RRM Conformance Test System (CTS) as well as Carrier Acceptance Test (CAT) and Protocol Conformance Test (PCT) test cases on the ME7834L Mobile Device Test Platform (MDTP).
Anritsu Co. introduces the MT8821C Radio Communication Analyzer, an all-in-one RF tester with the widest capability for supporting LTE-advanced (LTE-A), as well as all other adopted technologies. The MT8821C supports 2 to 4 G wireless tests, making it a cost-effective single-instrument solution to validate co-existing UEs integrating multiple technologies. Covering 30 MHz to 6 GHz, it can conduct RF TRx tests in compliance with the 3 GPP and 3 GPP2 standards.
