Anritsu continues to lead global roll-out of LTE-Advanced high speed mobile devices with latest GCF approved test cases

Anritsu continues to lead global roll-out of LTE-Advanced high speed mobile devices with latest GCF approved test cases


Anritsu Corporation has announced that the company’s ME7873L RF Conformance Test System has become the world-first GCF approved test system to achieve the key milestone of more than 80% test cases supporting Japanese (Band 1-18, Band 1-26), and US (Band 4-13) frequency band combinations for Carrier Aggregation. This latest achievement, announced at the April 2014 GCF meeting, achieves a key milestone in the industry for the maturity of the eco-system to deliver stable devices ready for commercial use.

LTE-Advanced is the latest mobile communications standard, supporting higher speeds than LTE now being deployed by carriers worldwide, and uses Carrier Aggregation (CA) as the key technology in reaching higher data speeds of 300 MB/s. GCF validation is part of the certification for commercial release of mobile terminals, and more than 80% of test cases must be approved by GCF as a precondition for terminal certification. This 80% milestone is the trigger for certification to be made, and these Carrier Aggregation band combinations are being commercially deployed this year.

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 RF/RRM Conformance Test Cases for the combination of Band 1 and Band 5 used in South Korea, as well as for combinations of Band 3 and Band 8. With this achievement Anritsu has extended its leading position in the validation and approval of LTE-Advanced test cases within the GCF.
