# Support for RF Measurements and Protocol Tests in Sub-6 GHz and Millimeter Wave bands

# With a 5G base station emulation function, a single MT8000A test platform supports both the sub-6 GHz and millimeter wave bands used by 5G

# Combining it with the OTA Chamber enables both millimeter wave band RF measurements and beamforming tests using call connections specified by 3GPP

# design provides flexible futureproof support for 5G test requirements, including URLLC (Ultra-Reliable and Low Latency Communications) and mMTC (massive Machine Type Communications)

# Supports existing LTE test environment

Anritsu said its 5G testing platform MT8000A will support for broadband signal processing and beamforming technologies required by ultrafast broadband 5G communications. Anritsu, which is showcasing its latest testing solutions at MWC 2018, said MT8000A supports RF and protocol tests for the sub-6 GHz and millimeter wave bands.

Japan-based Anritsu has already developed the products supporting the LTE-Advanced Pro technology bridge to 5G systems. Anritsu expects to play a key role in facilitating a smooth and fast transition from 4G to 5G mobile communications by offering measurement solutions helping early rollout of 5G systems.
