August 10, 2009 â€“ FLEET, Hampshire, U.K â€“ Anite, a global leader in testing technology for the wireless industry, today launches its â€œSAS-Liteâ€ network simulation solution. Designed to expand the range of real-world testing options and support rapid product development, â€œSAS-Liteâ€ offers all the high-end features of Aniteâ€™s market leading interoperability tool â€œSASâ€, whilst creating a flexible upgrade path as customersâ€™ testing needs grow.
Mobile network operators, terminal and component manufacturers can now debug or prove mobile devices in a simple and easy-to-use environment that offers real-world derived scenarios, applications, benchmarking and performance testing, as well as in-depth signalling analysis. Unique to Anite is the ability to create operator based test scenarios or import data taken from network measurement tools, such as â€œNemo Outdoorâ„¢â€.
â€œSAS-Liteâ€ is designed to save time and money demanded by live network trials by building testing scenarios and scripts in a controlled and repeatable laboratory environment that reduce test times by 50%. Customers can save further by taking advantage of â€œSAS-Liteâ€™sâ€ ability to execute playback scripts autonomously using Aniteâ€™s comprehensive script campaign management and terminal control tools, which reduce the need for field trials further.
â€œSAS-Liteâ€ is available in single- or dual-cell emulator configurations with each cell covering the 3GPP GERAN and UTRAN standards as well as HSPA+. Modular upgrades enable easy, cost-effective expansion to other technologies, such as Long Term Evolution (LTE).
â€œIn todayâ€™s tough economic climate, our customers are keen to deliver the maximum return on their investments without compromising quality or time to market,â€ said Paul Beaver, 3GPP Director, Anite. â€œSAS-Liteâ€ helps our customers to achieve their goals by giving them access to the high-end application features of our premium â€œSASâ€ product in a choice of two simple packages. The boom in applications and performance testing, driven by the success of smartphones and mobile broadband, makes â€œSAS-Liteâ€ the ideal choice for fast, cost-effective product tests.â€
