February 24, 2012 Press Release
24 Feb 2012 – Aachen, Germany - Qosmotec, a global leader in wireless
device testing technology, today announced that it would support Azimuth’s
portfolio of real world test solutions with the Qosmotec Propagation
Effects Replicator (QPER) software. With QPER, Azimuth’s customers will
have access to a powerful application that creates virtual environments,
which can then be recreated with the dynamic RF fading capability available
with the Azimuth
ACE MX MIMO Channel Emulator.
The Qosmotec Propagation
Effects Replicator is a powerful software tool for subscriber mobility
and MIMO simulation and is designed for lab usage. It can simulate
drive tests in a virtual landscape, handover, and cell reselection
scenarios, and can verify network set-ups by
virtually driving through a predicted network. QPER also supports
simulation of fast fading amplitude fluctuations, antenna coverage patterns,
as well as radio shading.
Azimuth’s portfolio of solutions
enables network operators, network equipment manufacturers, device and
silicon vendors to recreate real world network conditions in an automated
lab environment. Azimuth’s solutions include:
QPER support for the ACE MX channel emulator means that customers will
now be able to leverage Qosmotec’s leading solution for network modelling
with the power of Azimuth’s leading wireless channel emulation platform
to define and develop customized network fading channel models and scenarios,
which they can use to simulate and evaluate device and network performance
before committing to actual network modifications.
- the ACE MX MIMO Channel Emulation platform, the industry’s leading,
easy to use bi-directional MIMO channel emulator,
- Azimuth’s award winning
Field-to-Lab (FTL) Solution, which provides a repeatable and
automated environment for replaying field conditions within the
labs of mobile operators, and
- Azimuth’s RPM
Real World Performance Measurement solution, Azimuth’s automated
and cost-effective over-the-air device performance test solution.
Dieter Kreuer, Qosmotec managing director, stated, “We are very pleased
to be cooperating with Azimuth Systems. By adding support for the ACE
MX MIMO channel emulator, we provide our customers with the most robust
platform on the market to develop new network models, and predict and
evaluate device and network performance.”
senior vice president of Field Operations, Azimuth Systems, said, “Azimuth
is very excited that Qosmotec will now support the ACE MX channel emulator
with their Qosmotec Propagation Effects Replicator. Together,
we enable operators, infrastructure and device vendors to test proposed
network configurations - modelled with QPER - using real world fading
implemented using the ACE MX MIMO Channel Emulation platform. With
Qosmotec’s help, Azimuth has yet another way to put the world in our
customers’ lab and we look forward to working closely with Qosmotec
to bring this new capability to our customers.”
with support for Azimuth ACE MX, is being demonstrated at Mobile World
Congress (booth 2.2D49), Barcelona Spain from Feb 27th to Mar 1st. Azimuth
Systems will also be exhibiting at Mobile World Congress in booth 2.1D46.
