For wireless equipment manufacturers testing 4G LTE, EB PropsimŽ F32 is a cost-effective solution

OULU, Finland -- EB (Elektrobit Corporation NASDAQ-OMX: EBC1V,) introduced today the EB Propsim F32 radio channel emulator for testing the performance of wireless networks, base stations, terminals and chipsets utilizing multi-antenna and multi-radio technologies. EB Propsim F32 - with 32 RF channels and 128 fading channels - is an easy solution for testing complex technologies such as 3G/4G, LTE, LTE-Advanced and beyond. It is a scalable test solution with up to eight times the traditional emulator testing capacity in a single box - hence being the first radio channel emulator that can truly test the performance of an entire 4G LTE network in a laboratory. The EB Propsim F32 expands EB's patented radio channel emulator product portfolio that is used globally by all major wireless players.

The consumer demand for better, smarter, and faster devices has necessitated the use of new technologies in order to increase the throughput for user applications. In order to ensure the reliable functionality of 4G LTE products, it is essential to accurately capture its veritable performance during R&D phase. EB Propsim radio channel emulators are designed to replicate wireless environments such as fading, noise and spatial channel conditions. The radio channel emulator isolates the performance issues of a developed product in all phases of R&D and therefore shortens the product development cycle, which provides cost savings down the wireless ecosystem.

"4G LTE creates design and test challenges with adoption of new technologies such as MIMO and beam forming. With this in mind, we have designed EB Propsim F32 to support our customers to conduct cost-effective LTE testing," said Janne Kolu, vice president, test tools at EB. "There is a remarkable gap between lab testing and field testing. Often the test results in the lab are good but the actual product performs badly in real field conditions. Our mission is to bridge this gap by bringing the most technically advanced test methods available to everyone working with LTE. EB Propsim F32 helps our customers to design better products and cuts the time-to-market significantly."

Product Features of the EB Propsim F32:

-- The most powerful testing product with the highest emulation capacity in the market -- Scalable number of RF channels from eight to 32 -- Provides a cost effective, low cost-per-channel -- New setup-wizard and 24/7 automated testing provides ease of use -- State of the art channel models and minimized test cabling provides the most accurate testing on the market
