FLEET, England, August 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Intuitive drag-and-drop graphical interface facilitates complex LTE Multi-RAT test creation without specific programming skills
Anite, a global leader in wireless device testing technology, today announced the availability of Scenario Mode, an enhancement to its Development Toolset suite for wireless device and chipset development that allows test engineers to rapidly design test scenarios (test scripts) through an easy-to-use graphical interface. With Scenario Mode, even engineers without specific programming skills are able to develop new test scripts which increases total script creation and cuts development time.
Anite's Scenario Mode is a complete offering for LTE and LTE Multi-RAT tests and covers lower layer functions such as L1 and L2 controls. Users of Scenario Mode are able to create most types of test, even more complex ones, through a simple drag and drop graphical interface. Scenario Mode offers a procedure-based rather than a message-based approach to script creation which makes test creation simpler and faster - the user creates a complete test by putting together a few procedure blocks without necessarily working through each message in detail. Existing customers of Development Toolset from Anite have access to this new feature as part of their Annual Maintenance Contract.
"This new functionality allows device and chipset manufacturers to increase the speed of development by making it easier and quicker to develop test scripts to help verify new designs," said Paul Beaver, Products Director, Anite. "As well as speed and ease-of-use, the graphical interface reduces the need for engineers with specific programming skills. Unlike other products on the market, Development Toolset also provides all of the powerful Developer's APIs that advanced users demand. In offering both simplified and advanced features in one suite, Anite's tools offer the flexibility and power to support the breadth of customers' needs and preferences."

Development Toolset is used by the majority of leading chipset manufacturers worldwide.
