Anite validates the first GCF TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA Inter-RAT test cases
Fleet, Hampshire, UK – 25th of January – Anite, a global supplier of mobile device testing solutions, today announces the validation of the first GCF (Global Certification Forum) TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA Inter-RAT (Inter-Radio Access Technology) test cases. By reaching this milestone, Anite now supports all of the GCF LTE protocol test requirements for TD-LTE mobile operators ahead of their network launches. TD-LTE is a variant of LTE that mobile operators such as China Mobile are currently deploying.
The TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA Inter-RAT conformance test cases enable chipset manufacturers and handset vendors to develop and certify dual-mode TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA devices. TD-SCDMA is the 3G standard widely deployed in China. The availability of these test cases is key to accelerating the launch of dual technology handsets in China, which will allow users seamless access to high speed data services offered by both TD-LTE and TD-SCDMA. This is a key enabler to ensure the rapid deployment of TD-LTE in China.
Anite has an unrivalled level of industry expertise in the field of TD-LTE conformance testing and has to date been responsible for more than 90 per cent of all TD-LTE test case verification submissions to 3GPP RAN5. Anite’s capability and expertise in developing LTE test solutions has helped it forge strong collaborative relationships with the leading handset manufacturers worldwide. Anite was the first test solution vendor to successfully prove the first TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA Inter-RAT conformance test cases in June last year.
Anite’s leading test case coverage for TD-LTE protocol testing means it provides complete support for TD-LTE mobile operators. This includes test case availability for TD-LTE bands 38, 39 and 40 and for the interworking between various technologies: TD-LTE/GERAN (2G), TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA and LTE TDD/FDD. The LTE FDD (Frequency Division Duplexing) technology has so far been commercially deployed in more than 50 countries worldwide.
