Qosmotec Propagation Effects Replicator (QPER) Now Supports Azimuth Systems’ Market
Leading ACE MX MIMO Channel Emulation Platform
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
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
virtually driving through a
predicted network. QPER also supports simulation of fast fading amplitude fluctuations, antenna coverage
patterns, as well as radio shading.
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
- 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
- Azimuth’s RPM Real World Performance
Measurement solution, Azimuth’s automated and cost-effective over-the-air device performance test solution.
Dr. 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.”
Pete Paglia, 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.”
QPER, 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.
