April 28, 2010 – Anite and Huawei today announced the demonstration of the industryâ€™s first TD-LTE UE protocol conformance test cases. Anite and Huawei have been working together to accelerate the availability of TD-LTE technology for China Mobileâ€™s World Expo launch later this year.
Conformance testing is fundamental to leading-edge technologies, such as TD-LTE, because it ensures that new handsets and data cards provide both the applications and services anticipated by the end user, and delivers the ability to work seamlessly with existing users and networks. Huawei uses Aniteâ€™s LTE test solution â€“ which provides a suite of development tools for UE designers â€“ to develop their devices in advance of LTE networks being available. This initial testing helps ensure that these devices meet the industryâ€™s rigorous certification requirements during the earliest stages of their development cycle.
â€œTD-LTE device testing is essential in ensuring next generation LTE wireless devices meet customer expectations,â€ said HeTingBo, Huawei. â€œOur ongoing collaboration with Anite, and their expertise in providing the leading LTE test solutions, brings us a step closer to realising our goal of bringing LTE devices to market successfully.â€
The new TD-LTE tests build upon Aniteâ€™s comprehensive portfolio for all leading 3GPP protocol technologies from GSM through EDGE and WCDMA to the latest HSPA+ and LTE standards. This advancement confirms Aniteâ€™s leadership position in the provision of LTE protocol conformance test solutions.
Aniteâ€™s unique blend of software-only host and target test solutions for 2G, 3G and LTE technologies allow developers to adopt a total end-to-end test philosophy for all of their wireless testing needs, reducing both their time and cost to market.
“Working with Huawei is speeding the availability of the first TD-LTE test cases to LTE developers, enabling the wireless industry to deploy the technology successfully and swiftly,” said James Goodwin, Product Manager at Anite. â€œOur customers can be confident that investing in Aniteâ€™s products will meet their testing needs, maximising their test system utilisation and increase return on investment.â€
