Fleet, Hampshire, UK – 1st of November – Anite, a global leader in wireless device testing technology, today announced that following significant customer demand, it is now successfully delivering a complete turn-key LTE Performance Test solution to the wireless market.
The combined solution uses “best-of-breed” products; Anite SAS (Anite’s industry-leading network simulator for device interoperability testing), the Anite 9000 Mobile Test Accelerator platform, and Azimuth Systems’ ACE MX advanced channel emulator. The Anite LTE Performance Test solution provides customers the broadest coverage and highest utilization of any LTE test system on the market today. It is offered as a complete turn-key system or the new performance related elements, including the Azimuth ACE MX, can be offered as an upgrade to existing Anite LTE customers.
Enabled through a new reseller agreement between Anite and Azimuth, customers can purchase the complete offering from a single source, eliminating multiple purchase requests and benefiting from a single point of contact for the sales and installation process.
The solution has equal appeal through all LTE wireless customers including mobile operators, chipset and platform developers and independent test houses, and has already been delivered to Tier-1 mobile device manufacturers. In addition to running the packaged scripts, customers also have the ability to use the Anite and Azimuth powerful user interfaces to create their own performance test scenarios to meet the growing needs of LTE performance assessment, particularly where LTE channel emulation is required.
“Anite’s market leading LTE solutions have gained wide customer acceptance and I am pleased that we can now expand our offering to include Performance Testing” said Mike Bonin, Managing Director, Anite’s Handset Division. “Performance Testing is a strategic addition to the Anite product portfolio; it offers our customers ultimate flexibility and test coverage.”
