Abstract: An analysis of international organizations involved in measuring the radiation characteristics of antenna systems in their near radiation zone is presented. Out of the great variety of such organizations we selected only those that specialize in testing of antenna system parameters for base stations and terminals that meet 5G NR telecommunication system standards. We have reviewed standards adopted by these testing laboratories and their cutting-edge samples of the testing systems. We have also analyzed the level of development of Russian specialized testing laboratories that perform testing and certification of 5G NR mobile network equipment. We have reviewed their equipment and capabilities for testing the parameters antenna systems being part of 5G NR telecommunication systems.

Keywords: near-field testing, measurements of antenna radiation patterns, certification of antennas, near-filed scanner
