LTE (Long Term Evolution) is the established next generation mobile technology, with many legacy systems and variants being integrated into operator network upgrades. The challenge for wireless device developers is to offer the right services and be able to support a variety of systems to ensure their devices can connect globally on any mobile network.
Anritsu offers a complete line of LTE test solutions to ensure the performance and quality of your LTE devices and networks.
Mobile devices are quickly becoming fast multimedia terminals due to widespread adoption of the LTE radio communications standard. The MD8430A Signalling Tester is a key LTE base station simulator for developing LTE-compliant chipsets and mobile devices. Leveraging its extensive experience in 3G markets, Anritsu has developed the MD8430A as a powerful LTE protocol R&D test platform enabling developers bring LTE terminals to market as fast as possible.
The introduction of the LTE next-generation communication standard makes MIMO evaluation in a fading environment much more complex. Connecting the MF6900A Fading Simulator to the MD8430A Signalling Tester via dedicated digital interface to simulate a BTS greatly simplifies 3GPP LTE 2×2 MIMO and 4×2 MIMO fading tests.
LTE also drives the rollout of new smartphones. The MD8475B Network Simulator is a complete network-in-a-box, simulating the radio access as well as the core network and server functions, and supports a full range of communications standards (including LTE). SmartStudio, the user interface of the MD8475B, eliminates the need to create complex test scripts, assuring efficient and simpler mobile testing.
The ME7834L is a configurable system that provides flexible protocol test solutions throughout the lifecycle of modern wireless terminals. ME7834 systems are able to address applications in development and conformance and evolve to provide advanced system simulation. The ME7834 can be configured to provide solutions for individual applications or combinations that allow functionality to be shared or expanded as needs mature. From a simple bench-top development system, to a rack that provides comprehensive simulation of real networks, ME7834 combines hardware with tools and a framework for efficient use of resources.
The ME7873L LTE RF Conformance Test System supports the LTE frequency bands deployed worldwide, and users can choose the FDD/TDD test functions matching their test terminals. In addition, the ME7873L can be tailored to the required test environment, matching customers' RF TRX, performance, and RRM requirements, as well as minimizing their investment costs.
