Anritsu MT8000AQualcomm has validated Anritsu’s MT8000A comms tester for sub-6GHz 5G NR small cells using Qualcomm’s 5G RAN platform and its QDART (development acceleration resource toolkit).

“The Qualcomm FSM100 5G RAN Platform is a very capable 5G NR small cell solution that is used widely by mobile operators,” according to Anritsu. “The platform is designed to help OEMs reuse their software and hardware reference designs across sub-6GHz and mmWave products.”

In this case, the MT8000A supports non-signalling RF tests of 5G NR mmWave and sub-6GHz base stations. It is 3GPP TS38.141-1 and TS38.141-2 compliant.
