Anite Takes LTE Data Performance to the Next Level

FLEET, HAMPSHIRE, U.K., July 6, 2011

Anite, a leader in wireless device testing, announced today the availability of a new solution that will include carrier-based scripts for LTE data throughput performance to address the need for LTE data performance testing in the laboratory environment.

The new solution has taken into consideration the data throughput requirements of major LTE network operators. Anite’s LTE data performance solution is based on SAS, Anite’s network simulator for device interoperability testing; the Anite 9000 Mobile Test Accelerator platform; and Azimuth Systems’ ACE MX Channel Emulator. The ACE MX is architected to meet the needs of OFDM- and MIMO-based wireless systems in addition to the emulation requirements of 2G/3G systems. The ACE MX supports industry-standard bands and channel models for LTE, WiMAX, 2G/3G, and Wi-Fi and addresses channel modeling and propagation conditions.

“New mobile devices need to conform to strict industry- and operator-specific criteria and live up to user expectations when launched,” said Paul Beaver, product director at Anite. “With LTE data performance also now under the spotlight, Anite can help ensure that LTE devices will perform as expected and accelerate their time to market. These new LTE carrier acceptance scripts offer a cost-effective option for SAS customers who also are interested in LTE data performance testing.”

“The integration of SAS with ACE MX provides Anite’s customers with solution for their LTE data performance testing needs,” said Peter Paglia, senior vice president of Field Operations at Azimuth Systems. “This solution enhances the consideration of real-world conditions in the laboratory environment so customers can test the signaling and data behavior of LTE devices in a faster and more cost-efficient way.”
