FLEET, England, November 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Extensive range of LTE testing capabilities made available for chipset vendors

Anite, a global leader in wireless device testing technology, today announced that its Development Toolset (DT) solution now supports extensive LTE (Long Term Evolution) Multi-RAT (Multiple Radio Access Technology) testing. Chipset and device manufactures are thereby able to comprehensively test dual or multimode devices. As the industry embraces LTE, mobile network operators are requesting devices that support LTE as well as legacy technologies such as GSM, WCDMA, and even CDMA2000.  

Anite is unique in the industry - it is the only provider of chipset and device test solutions to offer LTE Multi-RAT testing on a host platform. By using Anite's Development Toolset, device and chipset manufacturers can now fully validate their LTE Multi-RAT implementation in a proven test environment at a very early stage on host as well as on a more traditional target test platform. LTE Multi-RAT testing, prior to hardware and RF integration, ensures that vendors eliminate risk in their development programmes, as LTE device features are verified to work correctly at the very start of the development cycle.

The Development Toolset features an easy-to-use graphical interface (Scenario Mode), which allows test development to be carried out in a scalable environment. This solution now offers the possibility to perform complex LTE Multi-RAT Circuit Switched Fallback (CSFB) scenarios, which provides voice support on LTE networks in the early stages of LTE deployment as well as Packet Switched Handover (PSHO), which offers the ability to perform sustained data transfer across LTE and legacy networks.

"The availability of LTE Multi-RAT functionality in Anite's intuitive and flexible Development Toolset means that chipset and device manufactures can easily and rapidly develop complex LTE Multi-RAT tests, thereby achieving higher productivity and shorter development time scales," said Paul Beaver Product Director, Anite.  "With these features in Development Toolset, manufacturers can transform their test programmes to make them truly comprehensive and extremely versatile. Vendors can be sure that Anite's Development Toolset is removing risk from the development process and accelerating LTE device maturity."

Anite's Development Toolset is a comprehensive suite of tools that supports the entire wireless device development ecosystem, from pre-silicon protocol module development through to systems integration and verification. Development Toolset is used by the majority of leading chipset manufacturers worldwide. Its user-friendliness, flexibility, extensive LTE technology roadmap and high level control of test creation, allow tests to be carried out according to a manufacturer's specific needs and distinct specifications.
