Anite's field-to-lab solution uniquely supports operator test plan to cost-effectively verify device performance

Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, has today announced that a major Chinese mobile operator has selected Anite's Virtual Drive Testing Toolset for verifying mobile device performance in high-speed train scenarios.

Anite's recently launched Virtual Drive testing Toolset with simulated network support enables users to cost-effectively verify mobile device performance in a controlled laboratory environment. It is the only solution that supports the mobile operator's recently launched and mandated test plan, requiring suppliers to demonstrate device performance under challenging mobility conditions prior to market introduction. The mobile operator has developed the test plan in collaboration with Anite to improve end-users' quality of experience when travelling on high-speed trains within the country.

Virtual Drive Testing Toolset uses network signalling and RF propagation log data, captured in the field using drive test tools, to recreate a realistic mobile device performance testing environment in the laboratory. Users are able to make considerable cost savings in the development and deployment phases by reducing the amount of field testing, and instead adopt a repeatable lab-based testing methodology that uses realistic field conditions. The solution takes into consideration extreme signal propagation conditions including multipath, Doppler Effect, dynamic channel delay, interference, as well as multi-RAT and multi-cell handover.  

Anite recently demonstrated its high-speed train scenario testing capability at the China Mobile Global Partner Conference 2015 in Guangzhou, China. It will also be showcased as part of the Virtual Drive Testing demonstration on Anite's stand (6I50 in Hall 6) at Mobile World Congress 2016 taking place in Barcelona next month.

Paul Beaver, Products Director at Anite's Device & Infrastructure Testing business commented: "We are delighted that a major Chinese mobile operator has selected Anite and our Virtual Drive Testing Toolset for verifying device performance in high-speed train scenarios. This highly innovative field-to-lab solution leverages Anite's network simulation and channel emulation expertise, providing an advanced environment for the effective benchmarking of mobile devices."
