LTE-Advanced Signal Studio Software

Basic LTE-Advanced options (N7624B-JFP, N7625B-JFP) are compliant to the 3GPP Release 10 (December 2010) standard

Carrier Aggregation (CA) signal generation covering deployment scenarios proposed by 3GPP

* Downlink and uplink aggregation
* Carrier aggregation in contiguous bandwidth
* Carrier aggregation in non-contiguous bandwidth

Enhanced uplink:

* Clustered SC-FDMA
* Simultaneous PUCCH and PUSCH signal generation

Updates to Current LTE Signal Studio Software

LTE-Advanced (R10) Enhancements

* Channel State Information Reference Signals (CSI-RS)
* UE-Specific Reference Signals (DM-RS)
* Added support for logic analyzer connectivity

A detailed list of enhancements and defect fixes is available for N7624B and N7625B
