Industry-first EPS-FB (Evolved Packet System Fallback) Test for 5G New Radio – Anritsu and Qualcomm

By | February 24, 2021

The first EPS-FB Protocol Conformance test for 5G NR has been confirmed on the ME7834NR 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform fueled by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X60 5G Modem-RF System.

EPS Fallback is a portability trigger for improving voice Key Performance Indicator (KPI), which empowers 5G telephones to use Next Generation Core (NGC) with New Radio for all information traffic, while permitting telephones to change to Long Term Evolution (LTE) Evolved Packet Core (EPC) for voice calls. Presently, gadgets without full help of Voice over New Radio (VoNR) ability can utilize Standalone mode (SA) NR organizations, and organization administrators can convey NGC without full help of voice administrations.

The ME7834NR Protocol Conformance Test Platform is enrolled with both the GCF and PTCRB as Test Platform (TP) 251.

The ME7834NR is a test stage for 3GPP-based Protocol Conformance Test (PCT) and Carrier Acceptance Testing (CAT) of cell phones fusing Multiple Radio Access Technologies (RAT). It underpins 5G NR in both Standalone (SA) and Non-Standalone (NSA) mode, notwithstanding LTE, LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), LTE-A Pro, and W-CDMA. At the point when joined with Anritsu’s new OTA chamber MA8171A and RF converters, the ME7834NR covers the sub-6 GHz and millimeter wave (mmWave) 5G frequency bands
