MILPITAS, Calif., June 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- JDSU (Nasdaq: JDSU and TSX: JDU) today announced that an impartial panel of wireless industry experts judged the JDSU LTE Network Trial Solution to be the Best Testing Product for LTE. JDSU, the only company recognized for communications test excellence, received the award at Informa's Annual LTE World Summit in Amsterdam, where other widely recognized innovators in LTE received awards in different categories.

"We are honored to be among such a select group of prominent LTE innovators," said Tom Smith, senior vice president in JDSU's Communications Test and Measurement business segment.  "JDSU's comprehensive, end-to-end capabilities allow vendors and carriers to quickly evaluate and integrate network components and analyze performance across an entire network in real time.  The winning solution is already accelerating the accurate measurement of performance and feature benchmarks in LTE trials around the world."

The solution's extensive toolset enables vendors to effectively demonstrate their equipment's capabilities to network operators, and allows operators to make informed purchase and deployment decisions, as well as evaluate LTE against legacy or competing technologies. The solution integrates air interface data sources, which includes JDSU's Drive Test for LTE, with the JDSU Signaling Analyzer Real Time (SART) for LTE to make end-to-end call trace possible. In addition to LTE, the solution covers all of the relevant standards for SAE, IMS, GERAN, UTRAN, 3GPP2, among others. The JDSU Drive Test solution offers full capability to analyze the radio environment and makes active tests over both LTE and legacy technologies.  

JDSU's LTE test solution, which comes with knowledge-ware, is the only one to participate actively in all LSTI, LTE and SAE Trial Initiative working groups.  JDSU's expertise in LTE deployment is reflected in its comprehensive trial test plans and methodologies and an LTE reference guide. The solution includes a complete set of definitions for key performance indicators (KPIs).

JDSU's LTE test solution is not only the most commonly used commercial test solution in LTE trials, it is also the most honored. The solution portfolio won the Frost & Sullivan Marketshare Leadership Award in 2009 and was the only test solution invited to participate in the MSF LTE/SAE Interoperability Event hosted in March by Vodafone and China Mobile. The event would not have succeeded without reliable and comprehensive real-time test results.

Other winners of Informa LTE awards included Ericsson Research, TeliaSonera, Huawei Technologies, pico-Chip Designs, and Antti Toskala, who won for his widely acknowledged individual contributions to LTE development.
