For immediate release - Anritsu Corporation announced today that Anritsu's ME7873L RF Conformance Test System (RFCT) has become the first test system to achieve GCF test case approvals for 80% of LTE terminal RF test cases required for terminal certification.

Long Term Evolution (LTE) is a new, high-speed wireless service offering data speeds 5 to 10 times faster than current 3G mobile communications. With some of global operators close to rolling out LTE services before the year end, leading LTE terminal makers can utilize these test cases in preparation for future GCF Terminal certification. As a condition for starting terminal certification, GCF requires that 80% of each group of test cases used for examining conformance with LTE specifications must have been validated and approved on a single Test Platform.

Anritsu's ME7873L RFCT received this GCF validation milestone for the initial group of RF test cases at the recent GCF meeting held in October making the ME7873L the world's first test platform for RF Conformance Tests to offer all of the test cases included in this GCF milestone and approved by GCF. Additionally, these GCF validated test cases include covering the RRM test—marking another world first. In addition to its leading RF conformance test solution, Anritsu offers LTE protocol conformance test solutions to satisfy the requirements for GCF certification testing. Anritsu expects its protocol solutions to meet this important milestone before the end of 2010. Anritsu provides a complete range of products to help LTE device manufacturers to improve product quality and time to market.
