Anite Maintains LTE Conformance Testing Lead
Global Certification Forum confirms Anite’s leadership
Fleet, Hampshire – 3rd of November – Anite, the global leader in wireless device testing, today announced that its protocol conformance testing solution – Anite Conformance Toolset – has once again been confirmed by the Global Certification Forum (GCF) as having the broadest range of tests for formal protocol certification testing of the latest LTE devices.
Anite’s expertise and contribution to 3GPP standardisation is unmatched in the industry. Anite has verified over 85 per cent of the LTE protocol test cases that constitute the current GCF certification requirements. This means Anite’s Conformance Toolset offers the most comprehensive LTE test cases to develop, integrate, pre-conformance test and certify devices. This is crucial, as cutting-edge technologies like LTE require thorough conformance testing to ensure that new devices deliver both the applications and services anticipated by the end user. Conformance testing is also vital to ensure network interoperability, as LTE devices will need to interoperate with many differing cellular technologies, including GSM, GPRS, EGPRS, W-CDMA and HSPA+. Interoperability has ensured an increasing number of mandatory device tests are required from device manufacturers.
The comprehensive range of tests provided by Anite’s Conformance Toolset enables device manufacturers to meet the rigorous testing required by operators to accept LTE devices onto their networks. Anite’s Conformance Toolset also provides a powerful automation capability with intuitive run-time and analysis tools. This automation allows more efficient and quicker device testing.
“Anite has been widely acknowledged as the leading test equipment supplier from the beginning of LTE certification testing,” said Paul Beaver, Product Director at Anite. “Designers and manufacturers want to bring the latest LTE devices to market effectively and quickly. Companies are selecting Anite for this challenge based on more than just test case numbers alone. Anite’s expertise ensures that we can help a manufacturer turn 3GPP specifications into a market reality. Our level of expertise is not easily achieved and has come through working closely with the leading global chipset and device manufacturers.”
