Anritsu LTE-Advanced RF/RRM conformance test system achieves 80% of GCF validation for Band1-18, Band1-26, and Band4-13
TT Correspondent |  |  11 Apr 2014

Anritsu Corporation’s President Hirokazu Hashimoto has announced that the company’s ME7873L RF conformance test system has become the world-first GCF approved mobile test system to achieve more than 80% test cases supporting Band1-18, Band1-26, and Band4-13 for the LTE-Advanced Carrier Aggregation.

LTE-Advanced is a new mobile communications standard supporting faster speeds than LTE now being deployed by carriers worldwide and using carrier aggregation (CA) as a key technology in reaching higher data speeds.

GCF certification is a prerequisite for commercial release of LTE-Advanced mobile terminals and more than 80% of test cases used to assure compliance of LTE-Advanced terminals with CA standards must be approved by GCF as a precondition for terminal certification.

Anritsu's ME7873L RF Conformance Test System already took the world lead in January 2014 when it was approved by GCF for more than 80% of CA RF/RRM Conformance Test Cases for Band 1 and Band 5 used in S. Korea, as well as for combinations of Band 3 and Band 8.

This latest achievement announced at the April 2014 GCF Meeting expands Anritsu's lead in GCF certifications to Band 1-18 and Band 1-26 used in Japan, and to Band 4-13 used in North America.

With this achievement, Anritsu's Conformance Test System supports GCF- certified RF/RRM Conformance Tests for the frequency aggregations to be used when deploying commercial LTE-Advanced services in Japan and North America this year.

Global network operators are currently planning deployment of LTE-Advanced, and Anritsu is focusing continuing effort on obtaining GCF/PTCRB certifications to help bring this next-generation mobile broadband system to commercial deployment as soon as possible.
