FLEET, England -
Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, today announced that together with HiSilicon it has verified Release 10 LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) protocols in HiSilicon's newly developed LTE-A chipset.
Anite's early availability of key features within its testing solutions has enabled the industry to develop LTE-A products in line with market requirements. The Anite solution was used to verify HiSilicon's new chipset Balong720, which is the world's first LTE Cat6 platform supporting 20 MHz + 20 MHz Carrier Aggregation (CA). The close collaboration has resulted in the verification of new 3GPP RAN5 LTE-A CA protocol conformance test cases, using Anite's Conformance Toolset - a market-leading protocol conformance and performance testing solution. LTE-A CA provides end-users with superior data rates through combining spectrum resources.
Anite has achieved a number of key industry milestones over the years, such as the first TD-LTE test case verification submissions to 3GPP RAN5 in May 2010 and the industry-first TD-LTE CA test case submissions in July 2013. To date, more than half of all TD-LTE test case verification submissions to 3GPP RAN5 have been provided by Anite using Hisilicon product.
'Anite's close collaboration with Hisilicon has played an important role in advancing key features of LTE technology,' says Paul Beaver, Products Director at Anite. He continues, 'This underlines Anite's leadership position as a driving force behind the development of 3GPP RAN5 test cases and their subsequent inclusion in the device certification requirements of the Global Certification Forum (GCF).'
