Luton, UK, 14 November 2014 - It was announced today that Anritsu, a global leader in wireless telecommunications test equipment, has further enhanced its winning Protocol Conformance Test (PCT) solution with leading test coverage in key technologies for Chinese carriers.


The Time Division Duplex (TDD) variant of the LTE standard, also known as TD-LTE, has become increasingly important following the award of LTE TDD spectrum licences in China last year. Throughout 2014 the leading carriers have been rapidly developing their LTE network capabilities to include cutting edge technologies of LTE-Advanced Carrier Aggregation and IMS call features. Anritsu is meeting this growing demand and is now the market leader in approved test cases for TD-LTE Carrier Aggregation and the only test vendor with approved TD-LTE test cases in the IMS Voice over LTE (VoLTE) related technology of aSRVCC. Anritsu’s leading position in these work items, as well as the FDD variant of aSRVCC, was confirmed by the Global Certification Forum (GCF) at the CAG meeting held on 14-15 October in Los Angeles, USA.


Carrier Aggregation and VoLTE aSRVCC have become increasingly significant because of what they offer to carriers and consumers. Carrier Aggregation provides more efficient radio spectrum use as well as higher data rates to consumers making increasing demands on services such as video streaming. VoLTE aSRVCC gives carriers the capability to offer voice calls in their LTE network which can be handed off to legacy 3G networks as the subscriber moves location.


Following this announcement Bob Kersey, Marketing Director of Wireless Testing Solutions commented, “We’ve worked very hard to support the needs of Chinese carriers and members of this ecosystem, resulting in industry and carrier approvals of our ME7834L PCT Platform for LTE TDD, FDD and IMS technologies. When combined with our continued delivery of ‘world firsts’ in leading edge technology test case approvals it enables Anritsu customers to succeed in their goal of bringing new technology to market as quickly as possible.”
