LTE Conformance Test System with GCF and PTCRB approval

Anritsu-me7873l04 August 2010 - Anritsu’s ME7873L RF Conformance Test System and ME7832L Protocol Conformance Test System for testing LTE mobile terminals have already received GCF approval and now have received PTCRB approval for 30 (ME7873L) and 20 (ME7832L) test cases supporting the wireless bands used in North America (Band 4, 13, 17, etc.).

With these 50 new approved test cases, Anritsu holds the world lead in most approved test cases (Test program for confirming operation of mobile terminal) and the company is planning to further increase this lead to help assure the fastest possible time to market (TTM) for customers rolling out LTE terminals in North America.

PTCRB (PCS Type Certification Review Board) is an organization determining basic validation test standards for network operations and mobile terminals to assure global interoperability between mobile systems and also decides frequency bands used in North America. PTCRB-approved measurement systems and measurement items guarantee that the test procedure and measurement accuracy match the conditions required for mobile terminal validation tests.

Network operators are strongly requiring the deployment of approved LTE terminals, that requires testing to the RF (Test assuring mobile terminal TRx characteristics, performance, etc. , in compliance with 3GPP standards) and Protocol (Test for assuring that communications between mobile unit and base station meet 3GPP standards) conformance tests using PTCRB and GCF-approved test systems (Like PTCRB, GCF is an organization determining basic validation test standards for network operations and mobile terminals to assure global interoperability between mobile systems). This is to objectively validate that the quality of terminals meets the LTE standards, and to avoid problems when users are using the devices (e.g. poor signal reception, dropped connections, or slow download speeds).
