(LSE: SPT), a global leader in test & measurement offers an extensive portfolio of solutions to test data centers, cloud computing environments, high speed Ethernet networks and services, 3G/4G wireless networks and devices, network security, and global navigation satellite systems.
announces its first LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) Carrier Aggregation (CA) test case submissions to RAN 5, demonstrating a strength in protocol conformance that extends across current 2G, 3G, and leading-edge LTE technology.
This program defined the scope, test cases, and templates for technical documents based on the SAE and IEEE specifications, utilizing the DSRC 5.9 GHz radio spectrum assigned by the FCC for vehicle safety and other mobility applications.
Anritsu’s ME7834 is a flexible test system focused on both PCT and Carrier Acceptance Test (CAT).
Another test area supported by Spirent is standalone GPS performance while LTE data transfers are in process.
“No legacy protocol could do what SUPL 2.0 can, so major network operators have decided to make it a requirement to enable LBS across all the cellular technologies supported by an LTE device,” said Rob Van Brunt, vice president of Spirent’s Wireless business. Spirent has made major contributions to development of the OMA’s protocol conformance tests, helping to make SUPL 2.0 a reality.” In addition to its technical advantages, SUPL 2.0 enables new revenue opportunities for the industry, with features such as Area Event triggering.
Manufacturers supporting this technology use Protocol Conformance test cases to certify device behavior before network deployment.
Anritsu’s ME7834 Mobile Device Test Platform (MDTP) has been established as the leading platform for GCF- and PTCRB-validated LTE test cases since 2011, providing customers with the greatest access to the tests used in mobile device certification.
