November 1, 2011. Anite has announced that it is now successfully delivering a complete turn-key LTE performance test system to the wireless market. The combined system incorporates Anite SAS network simulator for device interoperability testing, the Anite 9000 mobile test accelerator platform, and Azimuth Systems’ ACE MX advanced channel emulator.
Enabled through a new reseller agreement between Anite and Azimuth, customers can purchase the complete offering from a single source, eliminating multiple purchase requests and benefiting from a single point of contact for the sales and installation process.
The system targets mobile operators, chipset and platform developers, and independent test houses. Anite says the system has already been delivered to Tier-1 mobile device manufacturers. In addition to running the packaged scripts, customers also have the ability to use the Anite and Azimuth user interfaces to create their own performance test scenarios to meet the growing needs of LTE performance assessment, particularly where LTE channel emulation is required.
“Anite’s market leading LTE solutions have gained wide customer acceptance, and I am pleased that we can now expand our offering to include Performance Testing,” said Mike Bonin, managing director of Anite’s handset division. “Performance Testing is a strategic addition to the Anite product portfolio; it offers our customers ultimate flexibility and test coverage.”
“Azimuth is very excited to have partnered with Anite to integrate the ACE MX in their LTE performance test solution” said Jim Iuliano, president of Azimuth Systems. “This partnership is the result of many productive engagements and now offers a superior LTE test solution that combines the power of Anite’s SAS network simulator and 9000 Mobile Test Accelerator with Azimuth’s easy to use MIMO channel emulator, the ACE MX. Our mutual customers will see immediate benefit from this joint solution as well from the comprehensive support we can offer.”
