Anritsu Company, as part of its commitment to developing 5G technology, participated in the National Science Foundation (NSF)-led Advanced Wireless Research Initiative, which included a program to enable the design, development, deployment, and operations of four city-scale testing platforms for Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR) over the next decade. The Advanced Wireless Research Initiative is further aligned with the White House Smart Cities Initiative, which aims to make it easier for cities, federal agencies, universities, and the private sector to work together.

The PAWR program constitutes a public-private effort spanning NSF and more than 20 technology companies and associations, including Anritsu. The eventual city-scale testing platforms, and the fundamental research to be supported on them, will allow academics, entrepreneurs, and the wireless industry to test and develop advanced wireless technology ideas, protocols, applications, and services, some of which may translate into key future innovations for 5G and beyond.

'Anritsu has been at the forefront of 5G test instrumentation used to design and verify the advanced networks that will make the next generation of wireless technology a reality between now and 2020. Key solutions that comprise our 5G test portfolio will be part of our contribution to the Advanced Wireless Research Initiative. We are pleased to be part of such an important program that will help lay the foundation for a new communications infrastructure that will benefit society.'
