Anritsu Corporation and Artiza Networks have collaborated on an open radio access network (O-RAN) test solution. The O-RAN concept uses open specifications for network interfaces to facilitate expanded services through multi-vendor sourcing, cost-reducing, and rollout of artificial intelligence (AI) applications, as well as to create a new ecosystem as a long-term driver generating business opportunities. Mobile network operators and equipment vendors are pushing forward with O-RAN testing and introduction led by promotion groups, including the O-RAN Alliance.

This collaboration combines Anritsu’s wireless test solutions for PHY-layer measurements, such as signal analysers and signal generators, with Artiza Networks’ base station/network load test solutions for upper layers to offer high-level, wide-ranging solutions to issues faced by O-RAN. Anritsu will contribute to the growth of the O-RAN with customers and partners in global.
