Samsung, which competes with Nokia, Huawei, Ericsson and ZTE in the 5G equipment space, has introduced its 5G products including 5G home routers (CPEs), 5G Access Unit (AU) last year under development for commercial grade products.

Samsung is currently doing 5G trials with major operators in telecom markets such as the United States, South Korea and Japan to commercialize 5G. Anritsu’s MS2850A will play a key quality assurance role at manufacturing to facilitate fast 5G service deployments.

Japan-headquartered Anritsu said the MS2850A testing solution has an analysis bandwidth of up to 1 GHz used by 5G. Telecom engineers using the modulation analysis software will be able to capture up to 8 multicarrier signals.

Anritsu claims that these features cut measurement times compared to earlier slow signal analyzers requiring channel-by-channel analysis. The dynamic range, amplitude, and phase flatness of the MS2850A meeting the specifications of high-end models support both high-accuracy signal analysis.

Cut in capital equipment costs, helping increase both product quality and measurement speed while maximizing investment efficiency, are the main benefits from the deployment of the MS2850A signal analyser, said Shinya Ajiro, general manager, IoT Test Solutions Div., Anritsu Corporation.
