Telecom testing equipment vendor Anritsu today said the MT8821C Radio Communication Analyzer supports LTE-Advanced testing.
LTE roll out is taking off in India with Bharti Airtel launching LTE 4G in select towns in India. Reliance Jio Infocomm will launch 4G soon.
Anritsu MT8821C is designed for R&D of mobile devices / user equipment (UE) such as smartphones, tablets and M2M modules.
The new MT8821C supports all technologies, ranging from LTE-Advanced to 3G/2G, ensuing efficient RF adjustment and testing in one unit.
It supports LTE-A 3CC and 4CC Carrier Aggregation with 2×2 MIMO in a single box as well as LTE-U/LAA, said Anritsu.
Anritsu MT8821C is UE RF TRX tests compliant with the various communications standards, such as the LTE Unlicensed (LTE-U/LAA) in the 5 GHz band. Supported communication technologies include LTE/LTE-Advanced, W-CDMA/HSPA, GSM/EGPRS, TD-SCDMA/HSPA and CDMA2000 1X/1xEV-DO, said Anritsu.
The company claims that MT8821C automatically performs the PASS/FAIL judgment of measurement results, per the standard test conditions.
This apart, the MT8821C can be configured in an automated test system using either GPIB or Ethernet for remote control. Anritsu also provides a 3GPP RF test standard compliant automatic remote control sample tool called ATS. MT8821C increases measurement efficiency by reducing the time required for RF calibration of cellular chipsets and devices.
The MT8821C simplifies the complex settings process with its easy parameter search, bookmarking of commonly used parameters and setting test parameters functions – with one touch of a button.
Anritsu offers an upgrade path from the MT8820C to the MT8821C, making use of the existing MT8820C hardware and software to maximize previous investment in the MT8820C and keep MT8821C costs down.
