MindTree Selects Azimuth Systems' ACE MX MIMO Channel Emulator
for LTE and WiMAX Test
ACE MX Wireless Channel Emulator to Validate the Performance of Next in Wireless Product Line
MA – August 30, 2010 –
Azimuth Systems, Inc., a leading provider of wireless
channel emulators and broadband wireless test equipment, today announced that the company’s
ACE™ MX MIMO channel emulator has been selected by
MindTree Ltd for testing of its Next in Wireless (NIW) group which is part of their Product Engineering
Business Unit. MindTree will use the ACE MX universal wireless channel emulator primarily for 4x4 bi-directional
LTE and WiMAX testing. The solution will allow them to test their TDD and FDD products in different bands, as well
as to test advanced MIMO capabilities like beamforming.
MindTree delivers mobile and telecom infrastructure
products for OEMs and telecom service providers. The Company’s wireless products group provides white-labeled
products with high-end technology and design innovation. MindTree chose the ACE MX wireless channel emulator for
testing of its Next in Wireless “off-the-shelf” and customized 3G/4G smart phones, IPs, subsystems and base
stations for WiMAX and LTE technologies, because of the platform’s ease-of-use and simplicity of setup that will
save training time. The ACE MX will also support MindTree’s focus of getting its products to market faster.
“MindTree’s customers rely on our competence to provide the right mix of product differentiation through
compelling and well-defined user experiences and cutting-edge performance, as well as faster go-to market
capabilities,” said Dr. Sriram N. Suresh, technical manager of MindTree. “By using Azimuth’s ACE MX wireless
channel emulator to test our Next in Wireless product line, MindTree will improve upon its excellent track record
of converting WiMAX and LTE theoretical specifications into superior real-world products that address the specific
needs of this segment.”
Azimuth’s ACE MX wireless channel emulator provides the advanced features
required for efficient, automated and repeatable testing of next generation carrier-grade WiMAX and LTE solutions.
The ACE MX wireless channel emulator provides dynamic channel emulation that scales for testing single channel
devices up to MIMO 4X4 devices – or even up to 8X4 MIMO – and includes dedicated bi-directional channel modeling
that can accurately emulate real world wireless over-the-air conditions in both the downlink and uplink paths
“As MindTree is widely respected for the quality and reliability of its wireless product
line, the fact that the company chose the ACE MX MIMO channel emulator for its WiMAX and LTE testing needs is a
powerful validation of our product’s advanced capabilities,” said Pete Paglia, vice president of sales and
business development at Azimuth Systems. “We are pleased that the ACE MX wireless channel emulator will allow
MindTree to continue to create the high quality, high performance products that their company is known for.”
