Agency(Bundesnetzagentur)Adopts Anritsu's Base Station Simulators for 5G/4G/ IoT technologies and Bluetooth®/WLAN Testers

Anritsu Corporation is pleased to announce that Bundesnetzagentur (German Federal Network Agency)has adopted Anritsu’sBase Station Simulators for 5G/4G/IoT technologies as well as Bluetooth®/WLAN testersfor EMC tests.

As a government regulatory agency, the Bundesnetzagentur (Bnetza) isresponsiblefor testing electronic devices for unwanted emissions, as well as undertaking customer protection duties.

The TKG (German Telecommunication Law) sets limits on unwanted emissions. To keep these emissions in check, Bnetzaconducts random testsof consumer electronics, investigating electromagneticradiation which could harm the human body or interfere with the given standards or other electronic devices.

This testing is a huge undertaking for Bnetza, which needsto check W-LAN routers, Bluetooth equipmentand mobile phones of any brand, testing new technology like 5Galongside legacy technologies.

Anritsu’s MT8000A, MT8821C, MT8862A, and MT8852B base station simulators as well as its Bluetooth/WLAN tester for 5G/4G/IoT/Bluetooth/WLAN wireless devices are contributingto Bnetza’s telecommunications regulatory work.The Agencycombines these Anritsu test solutions with an Over the Air (OTA)chamber and other EMC testers to perform EMC tests based on both ETSI’sand in-houseregulatory test standards.

Product Outline


The Radio Communication Test Station MT8000A is an all-in-one 5G test platform supporting RF parametric and protocol tests, functional, and application tests, validation of beam characteristics, and more. It supports Non-Standalone (NSA) and Standalone (SA) mode base-station emulation functions for the development of 4G/5G chipsets and devicessupporting bothFR1 and FR2. The MT8000A is used widely for conducted and OTA tests to evaluate the performance of4G/5G devices.


The Radio Communication Analyzer MT8821C is a scalable LTE network simulator for RF parametric tests and verifying 2G/3G/4G smartphones, tablets, M2M modules, and IoT devices. It supports the latest 3GPP technologies, including VoLTE, Gigabit LTE, and Cellular IoT applications.


The Wireless Connectivity Test Set (WLAN Tester) MT8862A measures the RF TRx characteristics of WLAN IEEE802.11a/b/g/n/ac/axdevices(2.4, 5, and 6-GHz bands). The Network mode with built-in WLAN signalling messages measures the TRx performance of connected devices, while the Direct mode supports aflexible protocol-free test environment.


The Bluetooth Test Set MT8852B is the leading RF test equipment for design-validation and manufacturing tests of Bluetooth products. It supports transmit power, frequency, modulation, and receiver sensitivity tests for the Basic Rate (BR), Enhanced Data Rate (EDR), and Bluetooth low energy (BLE) measurements required by the Bluetooth specifications. Devices on the production line can be testedin under 10 seconds by pressing one key.
