RICHARDSON, Texas--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Anritsu Company, a world leader in LTE test solutions,
announces that its ME7873L LTE RF Conformance Test System is the first solution to provide independently
verified European Radio Equipment and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment (R&TTE) RF test cases for its
test functions used to measure next-generation LTE devices. The third-party verification of the measurement
procedures and accuracy of the ETSI-approved ME7873L allows LTE chipset and device manufacturers to use the
test system to confidently measure their products in accordance with the EU R&TTE directive.
“Anritsu has been committed to LTE since the early stages of the technology. Our ability to design a test system that
meets the R&TTE directive provides a key function in bringing LTE devices to market. It is a clear demonstration of
how Anritsu is leading the test industry in providing these critical solutions,” said Wade Hulon, Vice President and
General Manager of Anritsu Company. “LTE device manufacturers and test houses now have a compliant and
reliable platform for making required tests and ensuring compliance with the relevant EU legislation.”
The ME7873L can also be configured to meet the TRx, performance, and RRM requirements of LTE developers.
In addition to supporting R&TTE test items, the ME7873L supports part of the 3GPP TS36.521-1/3 test items and
will have approval for the GCF/PTCRB work items (WI), facilitating early production rollout of GCF/PTCRB-
approved LTE terminals.
The R&TTE directive is an ETSI standard assuring that the radio transmitter and receiver characteristics of
communications terminals and radio equipment are fully compliant with European radio legislation. LTE terminals
satisfying the requirements of the R&TTE directive can be used in any EU member state.
