ANRITSU has verified RACS feature for 5G New Radio (NR) on its 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform ME7834NR. Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 16 defines many enhancements for 5G NR, addressing new industry verticals and network deployment scenarios by introducing support for capabilities, such as Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communication (URLLC), Positioning for 5G NR, Dual Active Protocol Stack (DAPS), and enhanced MIMO/Handover. With the increase in the number of supported radio technologies and associated frequency band combinations, the size of the radio capability information has become significantly larger. To address this condition, an efficient method for optimized transfer of this signaling information has been defined with RACS.
