Anritsu Leads with Over 200 Approved 5G Carrier Acceptance Test Cases

first_imgAnritsu has announced that it has become the leader in both 5G protocol and RF carrier acceptance test coverage for a Tier 1 US Operator. Anritsu has achieved leading 5G protocol coverage with more than 200 test cases now available. Anritsu claims that its main competitor (Keysight) is validated for 81% of Anritsu’s total. Thus Anritsu is able to offer device manufacturers a significant advantage to use their carrier acceptance test solutions.In addition, Anritsu leads test vendors in 5G protocol carrier acceptance tests across US operators. This makes them the first test vendor to exceed 300 cumulative test cases for US operators, with nearly a 10% advantage over the nearest competitor, and with more test cases than the top two competitors combined.Anritsu has also achieved 100% coverage of FR1 and FR2 RF carrier acceptance tests (CAT) for Tier 1 US operators. As the only fully approved test equipment vendor for 5G RF CAT, Anritsu’s leadership means it is the only supplier to cover all FR1 and FR2 RF test cases for devices entering the operator’s ecosystem. Anritsu’s 100% coverage across FR1 and FR2 offers a significant advantage over other approved vendor’s offerings (77% coverage).For both Protocol and RF, FR1/Sub-6GHz capability is provided by Anritsu’s Radio Communication Test Station MT8000A which provides mobile-terminal vendors requiring efficient tests with good cost-performance covering a wide range of conditions. RF FR2/mmWave capability is supplied by the same MT8000A in Anritsu’s New Radio RF Conformance Test System ME7873NR which also includes Anritsu’s CATR Anechoic Chamber MA8172A. Protocol FR2/mmWave capability is supplied by the same MT800A in Anritsu’s 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform ME7834NR which also includes Anritsu’s RF Chamber MA8171A.New Radio RF Conformance Test System ME7873NRThe ME7873NR is an automated system for 3GPP TS38.521/TS38.533-defined 5G NR RF/RRM tests. It supports both planned 5G NR Standalone (SA) and Non-Standalone (NSA) modes, while combination with Anritsu’s 5G over-the-air (OTA) CATR Anechoic Chamber MA8172A covers all 5G frequency bands, including not only Sub-6 GHz but also mmWave. The flexible system configuration can be customized easily for the measurement conditions while also supporting LTE, LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), LTE-A Pro, and W-CDMA RF tests, as well as carrier acceptance tests (CAT). An upgrade from the LTE-Advanced RF Conformance Test System ME7873LA to add 5G support offers customers a cost-effective RF test system meeting required test conditions.5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform ME7834NRThe ME7834NR is a test platform for 3GPP-based Protocol Conformance Test (PCT) and Carrier Acceptance Testing (CAT) of mobile devices incorporating Multiple Radio Access Technologies (RAT). It supports 5G NR in both Standalone (SA) and Non-Standalone (NSA) mode, in addition to LTE, LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), LTE-A Pro, and W-CDMA. When combined with Anritsu’s new OTA RF Chamber MA8171A and RF converters, the ME7834NR covers the sub-6 GHz and millimeter wave (mmWave) 5G frequency bands.Radio Communication Test Station MT8000AThe MT8000A is an all-in-one test platform for RF, Protocol, and Beam tests, as well as for beam-forming evaluations. In addition to supporting functions for simulating base-station NSA and SA modes required for the development of 5G chipsets and terminals, it also supports the latest technologies, such as 4×4 MIMO for increasing data transmission speeds in the Sub-6 GHz band as well as 8CC for implementing wideband mmWave.The MT8000A covers the key frequency bands used by the first 5G services, such as the Sub-6 GHz band (FR1) frequencies of 600 MHz, 2.5 GHz, 3.5 GHz, 4.5 GHz, etc., and the mmWave band (FR2) frequencies of 28 GHz, 39 GHz, etc.The easy-to-use interface coupled with comprehensive RF measurement, protocol test, and NR fading software makes it easy to configure a reasonably priced cost-effective test environment.

Campbell hundred turns tables on Volcanoes

first_imgKINGSTON, Jamaica, CMC – Captain John Campbell’s fourth first class century headlined an admirable Jamaica Scorpions batting display as they set up an intriguing final day of their second round match against Windward Islands Volcanoes today. Under the cosh at the start of yesterday’s penultimate day on 203 for seven – still 184 runs adrift of Volcanoes’ first innings total of 387, Scorpions were bowled out for 220 to find themselves in even more difficulty.However Campbell, in his first season as skipper, punched a typically fluent 101 while fellow Test star Jermaine Blackwood stroked an enterprising 76 as Scorpions ended the day on 291 for three.Nkrumah Bonner was unbeaten on 40 and the in-form Paul Palmer, on 37, knocks that helped Scorpions turn the momentum of the game their way. Heading into the final day at Sabina Park, Scorpions lead by 124 runs.With little margin for error after losing their last three second innings wickets cheaply and being asked to bat again, Scorpions lost Assad Fudadin for nine after he had added 31 with Campbell for the first wicket, driving off-spinner Shane Shillingford to the diving Sunil Ambris at cover.Campbell then paired with Blackwood in an authoritative stand of 155 which turned the tide and carried Scorpions to lunch on 46 for one. Unbeaten on 18 at the break, Campbell hit nine fours and two sixes in an innings needing 157 balls and just over 3-¼ hours while Blackwood, on nine at the interval, faced 141 balls in just under 3-½ hours and counted eight fours and a six.Campbell brought up three figures by lifting Shillingford over mid-wicket for four in the final over before tea but perished in the third over after the break, bowled by Josh fast bowler Josh Thomas (2-37) missing a clip into the leg side.Palmer, with a first innings half-century, then put on 25 with Blackwood for the third wicket before uniting with Bonner in an unbroken 80-run, fourth wicket partnership, to ensure there were no further missteps. Palmer has faced 84 balls and counted a four and a six while Bonner has struck four fours in a 79-ball innings.last_img read more

Natalie Portman plans to “get jacked” for role in ‘Thor’

first_imgAlberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images for Disney(LOS ANGELES) — Natalie Portman may be small now but she plans on getting “jacked” for her upcoming role as Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder.During an Instagram Live with tennis star Serena Williams, the 39-year-old actress shared a few tidbits about the Marvel character she’s gearing up to portray, starting with her name.“She’s actually The Mighty Thor,” she clarified. “The comics had the female Thor when Jane becomes Thor, and she’s The Mighty Thor.”Portman, who will be the first female to take on the role, added that she is “very excited” for Thor: Love and Thunder. She also revealed that, after being postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, it’s now set to begin shooting in Australia in early 2021, which she’s thankful for since it gives her more time to bulk up. “We haven’t started. More time to get jacked. Which I have not,” she admitted. “I’ve got the carbo-loading down, but not the exercise part.”“I’m interested to see if I can gain muscle,” she added. While on the topic of Marvel, Portman confessed that Valkyrie, played by Tessa Thompson, will also appear in Thor: Love and Thunder and it just so happens to be her favorite Marvel character. “Major love for that woman,” she gushed. By Danielle LongCopyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Utah basketball: Princeton Onwas becoming a crowd-pleaser for the Utes

first_imgSALT LAKE CITY — Utah’s Princeton Onwas couldn’t quite understand what was going on. Against Washington State last Saturday, he had just fouled out late in the second half with the Utes up by 18 points. The fans inside the Huntsman Center responded by rising to their feet and giving him a rousing ovation.“That was crazy,’’ he said. “I wondered why — like, what did I do?’’Onwas had just completed perhaps his best game as a Ute, even if it lasted only 13 total minutes. He scored 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting and played some stingy defense against the Cougars. When told the crowd reaction may have had something to do with a couple of his high-flying, thunderous dunks where his head nearly hit the rim, he replied, “I guess I’ll do more of that.’’That may sound a bit boastful, but it doesn’t describe Onwas’ personality at all. He’s a soft-spoken young man who looks you in the eye and answers questions with “yes sirs” and “no sirs.” He doesn’t thrive off attention and appears almost embarrassed when he’s invited to postgame press conferences.The son of Nigerian parents, Onwas has had a few things to adjust to since coming to Utah from Houston, where he grew up, before playing junior college ball at Navarro College in Texas. One is the colder weather. Another is the altitude. A third thing is playing in front of the large crowds that he’d never seen before coming to Utah.“I’ve never had that many fans watch me before,’’ he said.After playing junior college ball and getting recruited by the likes of Kansas State and TCU, Onwas headed out west to Utah, where he was expected to bring some needed athleticism to the Utes’ lineup.He started four games early in the season in place of regular starter Dakarai Tucker and produced a pair of double-doubles with 12 points and 10 rebounds against Lamar and 13 points and 10 rebounds against Ball State.However, he went through a stretch of three scoreless games and saw his numbers dwindle until he didn’t even get into the first two Pac-12 games against Oregon and Oregon State and saw spotty minutes in Utah’s ensuing games. Then against Colorado earlier this month, he only played four minutes and had all zeros on his stat line, while freshman Ahmad Fields scored nine points in 16 minutes.It proved to be a wake-up call of sorts for Onwas.“It was a little bit of a moment of truth for him,’’ said Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak. “You could tell he didn’t like the fact that he wasn’t playing and suddenly it was on. He had a terrific week of practice and he’s had a couple of really good games.’’Onwas says he’s “following the coaches and trying to stay comfortable and have confidence. When I get in the game I try to be as aggressive as possible and that helps my game.’’As for the competition at the small forward spot with Tucker and Fields he says, “It’s good, especially in practice because we go at it a lot and it helps us get better. There’s no days off because someone’s always trying to take your spot.’’One thing that’s different about Onwas from a lot of players is that he actually enjoys playing defense.“The fact that you can stop their best player, I think that’s pretty fun,’’ he said.“He takes pride in defending the better players in our league and that’s part of why he wanted to be here,’’ said Krystkowiak. “He’s got the size and the strength. One-on-one defensively he’s one of our best.’’The Ute coach expects Onwas to play a key role for the Utes down the stretch.“All I’ve told him, if he plays hard, it’s hard for me to keep him off the floor,’’ Krystkowiak said. “That’s a skill he’s developing a little bit. He’s approaching the game with a lot more vigor and enthusiasm. Hopefully he’s gained some confidence from these last two outings.’’UTE NOTES: Thursday’s game at USC begins at 8:30 MST, while Saturday’s game at UCLA starts at 3 p.m. MST. … The last time the Utes played at USC, they lost 62-45 in 2012. … The Trojans lead the all-time series with Utah 17-16. … Ute guard Delon Wright leads the team in scoring (16.0 ppg), assists (5.4 apg), steals (2.8 spg), blocked shots (1.3 bpg) and is second in rebounding (6.7 rpg). Wright ranks fifth in the nation in steals. … Utah’s next home game is Feb. 19 against No. 2-ranked Arizona.last_img read more

The Angel Trees located at Walmart help provide gifts for less fortunate families.The Wellington Food Bank is the only place in town to pick up Angel Tree applications. They are open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:30-11 a.m. Those who are not Food Bank clients will need to show proof of income to be accepted. Applications are due by Nov. 29, as they will need at least two weeks to fill the orders. The age limit is birth to 13 years old.Anyone wishing to buy gifts for children can grab a tag off of one of the Angel Trees. Located on the tag is the child’s age, specific clothing size, and a toy they are wishing to receive on Christmas.“Currently, we have 69 children, but there are new angels coming in everyday,” said Food Bank Director Susan Musson.They ask that the gifts not be wrapped, and if possible, provide an outfit, pair of warm pajamas, and maybe a toy, but Musson said more emphasis needs to be placed on warm clothing. Donations of gifts can be dropped off at Walmart’s customer service area. They are also accepting monetary donations, which can be left at the Food Bank.“We start shopping for next year the day after Christmas,” Musson said. “Last year I got an entire pallet of Tonka toys for a very reasonable price.”Gifts need to be dropped off as soon as possible. Distribution for families is Dec. 16 from 1-6 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall.Anyone with questions can call Susan Musson during open hours at the Food Bank, 326-5301.Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
