Anritsu & Inseego Conduct Joint 5G Demonstration at MWC 2019
Anritsu, at the MWC, is showcasing its 5G test leadership by participating in a joint demonstration with Inseego Corp, a 5G and intelligent IoT device-to-cloud solutions pioneer. In the demonstration, the Anritsu Radio Communication Test Station MT8000A is used to verify the performance of an Inseego 28 GHz (n261) 5G device meets the 3GPP standards for 5G New Radio (5G NR) operating at millimeter (mmWave) frequencies. The demonstration also utilizes the revolutionary Anritsu MA8161A mmWave and sub-6 GHz multiRAT shield box that eliminates the need for a far field OTA environment and provides a very compact setup.As shown in the demonstration, Inseego is developing solutions that meet the high speeds and low latency associated with 5G, powered by the Company’s patented MiFiiQ technology. The MT8000A serves as the ideal 5G test solution due to its fast data throughput, ease of use, accuracy and flexibility. It can be combined with Anritsu’s OTA Chamber or shield box to conduct mmWave measurements and beamforming tests using call procedures specified by 3GPP to verify the performance of the Inseego device in a real-world environment.Anritsu is committed to helping create the 5G world by developing the test solutions required to successfully roll out the next-generation technology. As shown by their MWC 2019 demonstration with Inseego, the 5G test portfolio provides clear advantages in verifying 5G designs in less time and more efficiently for faster time-to-market – a vital factor in the race to full 5G deployment.The Inseego 5G mmWave and sub-6 GHz MiFi hotspot used in the joint demonstration with Anritsu is part of Inseego’s innovative 5G NR portfolio that includes fixed, mobile and industrial IoT solutions, providing customers with broad choices for a diverse set of applications.Anritsu’s MT8000A test platform is a 5G base station emulator that supports the latest technologies, such as wideband signal processing and beamforming, required by ultrafast, large-capacity, low latency 5G communications. The all-in-one platform supports various 5G deployment configurations, sub-6 GHz and mmWave frequencies, RF tests as well as protocol tests, and establishes industry-first support for both 5G NR non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) modes.
