Anritsu, in collaboration with Qualcomm, verifies the first tests of improved network slicing and energy saving for the new 5G autonomous radio
ALLEN, Texas, January 7, 2022 / PRNewswire / – Anritsu Corporation is pleased to announce that the first improved power-saving network slicing and user equipment (EU) protocol conformance testing for the new Autonomous Radio (NR) (SA ) 5G were verified on 5G NR mobile device test ME7834NR platform powered by the Snapdragon® X65 5G Modem-RF System, the world’s first Release 16 RF modem system.
Network slicing is a key feature of 5G NR that enables support for specific use cases on a network slice, which is a set of network resources dynamically configured for this purpose. Version 16 of the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) introduces support for interworking between Evolved Packet Core (EPC) and 5G Core (5GC) for network slices and introduces authentication and authentication controls. authorisation.
Energy saving for the EU is another area where 3GPP Release 16 has defined a number of new features, such as wake-up signal, improved planning of cross locations, reduction of MIMO (Adaptive Multiple Input Multiple Output) and relaxed radio resource management measure.
“3GPP Release 16, which is being described as the next step in 5G NR, enables new use cases and monetization opportunities for industry verticals,” said Shinya Ajiro, general manager of the Solutions division. mobiles at Anritsu Corporation. “We are proud that our collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. allows us to help the industry quickly implement and test new features.
The conformity tests are defined by 3GPP in standard TS 38.523-1 corresponding to the fundamental requirements of standard TS 38.331 and were submitted to working group 5 of the 3GPP radio access network (RAN WG5) by Anritsu. These tests will also be submitted to the Certification Agreement Group (CAG) of the Global Certification Forum (GCF) and to the PTCRB Validation Group (PVG) of the PCS Type Certification Review Board (PTCRB) for approval at meetings. next meetings.
5G NR ME7834NR Mobile Device Test Platform Overview
The 5G NR ME7834NR mobile device test platform is registered with both GCF and PTCRB as test platform 251.
The ME7834NR is a test platform for Protocol Conformance Testing (PCT) and Carrier Acceptance Testing (CAT) based on 3GPP of mobile devices integrating multiple radio access technologies. It supports standalone and non-standalone 5G NR, in addition to LTE, LTE-Advanced, LTE-A Pro and W-CDMA. When paired with Anritsu’s MA8171A RF OTA chamber and RF converters, the ME7834NR covers the frequency bands below 6 GHz and millimeter wave (mmWave) 5G NR.
