Aeroflex Significantly Reduces LTE Mobile Test Times for Service Centers
Press release date: Feb 06, 2014
STEVENAGE, UK—Aeroflex Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp. (NYSE:ARX), announced today that the latest upgrade to its Lector software provides dramatic improvements in the speed of mobile device RF tests in service centers.
Lector 7 software achieves a remarkable doubling in LTE test speed for a range of mobile devices. Test times for a reference multi-band mobile device* using the Aeroflex 7100 LTE Digital Radio Test Set with Lector 7 have been improved by an average of 53%. It now takes only 3 minutes 5 seconds to complete the full set of LTE tests with Lector 7 as compared with 6½ minutes with the previous version, Lector 6.83. For a full test script covering multiple 2G/3G/4G bands, test time is reduced from ten minutes to less than six minutes, a saving of over 40% in test time.
The 2G/3G/4G final tests were performed using a 7100 for LTE and an Aeroflex 4400 Mobile Phone Tester for 2G/3G, although a 2201 Service Tester can also be used in place of the 4400.
“Speed of test is a critical factor in high volume service centres”, said Roger Perry, product manager at Aeroflex. “The substantial reductions in overall test time achieved with Lector 7 reinforce the cost-saving advantages service centres can achieve when using Aeroflex solutions for testing mobile devices.”
*Using a European version of a popular Android smartphone as device under test.
