Anritsu Corporation announced Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. has selected its MS2850A signal analyzer with 5G analysis software installed to support 5G system development. Samsung unveiled its end-to-end 5G product portfolios including 5G home routers (CPEs), 5G Access Unit (AU) last year that were under development for commercial grade products.

The company is engaged with major operators in leading markets like the United States, South Korea and Japan to commercialize 5G to the market. Anritsu's MS2850A will play a key quality assurance role at manufacturing to facilitate fast 5G service deployments.

By partnering with Samsung in the mobile communications field since 3G (W-CDMA), Anritsu has long supported communications equipment development and manufacturing. As Samsung's 5G measuring equipment vendor, Anritsu provides a measurement solution tailored to fast deployment of future 5G services.

The Anritsu MS2850A signal analyzer with 5G analysis software installed has been selected by Samsung to support 5G system development.

With an analysis bandwidth of up to 1 GHz used by 5G as well as built-in modulation analysis software and all-at-once capture of up to 8 multicarrier signals, the MS2850A is an ideal solution for development and manufacturing of 5G wireless communications equipment. These advanced features slash measurement times compared to earlier slow signal analyzers requiring channel-by-channel analysis. In addition, the dynamic range, amplitude, and phase flatness of the MS2850A meet or exceed the specifications of high-end models, thus supporting both high-accuracy signal analysis while keeping down capital equipment costs and helping to increase both product quality and measurement speed while maximizing investment efficiency.

Shinya Ajiro, General Manager, IoT Test Solutions Div., Anritsu Corporation, said, "We are very pleased that Samsung Electronics – the world leader in the 5G market – has chosen our MS2850A as the best solution for their 5G wireless equipment manufacturing needs, and we shall continue working hard to provide more measurement solutions playing a key role in development of a mobile communications society, beginning with 5G."
