ETS-Lindgrens 5G FR1 Test Platform Wins Leading US Carrier Approval

CEDAR PARK, Texas July 16, 2020  ETS-Lindgren announced its 5G FR1 Test Solution has been certified as meeting the requirements of the 5G NR FR1 Supplementary RF Test Plan. The certified system features a dual ring AMS-8923 far field anechoic chamber and Anritsu's MT8000A network emulator.  Industry leading EMQuest EMQ-100 software controls the overall test sequence. RF test data using the carrier specific network parameters for EN-DC and carrier aggregation was collected on the AMS-8923 system installed at SGS North America Inc. in Branchburg, New Jersey, USA.


"We appreciate the combined efforts of SGS and Anritsu in helping us achieve this milestone," stated James Young, ETS-Lindgren's Director of Business Development. "The AMS-8923 system at SGS was upgraded for 5G testing with little downtime and enabled SGS to support early 5G customer demand. Our 5G upgrade can be applied to most antenna pattern measurement systems and is a direct overlay for CTIA and 3GPP over-the-air (OTA) RF measurement systems. Going forward, ETS-Lindgren will add additional network emulator support to EMQuest and continue to certify the platform combinations for carriers and the pending CTIA and 3GPP 5G FR1 test plans." 


Adnan Khan, Manager of Market Development for Anritsu, agreed that the team effort was key to meeting the carrier certification. "Anritsu's extensive portfolio of 5G products address many test requirements and standards, but partners like ETS-Lindgren help extend our reach and speed our certification efforts. Many of the standards are first revision, so a coordinated effort is the best way to support the many hundreds of tests necessary to launch successful 5G products."  The combination of ETS-Lindgren and Anritsu 5G test solutions address the vast majority of certification and compliance requirements for FR1 and FR2 capable devices.


The AMS-8923 in Branchburg, New Jersey, complements the AMS-8923 located at the SGS San Diego, California facility.  With the success of the San Diego chamber installed in 2016, SGS now conveniently offers a coast-to-coast wireless test services for its customers.
