By 2018, ABI Research expects annual home automation device shipments to exceed 351 million, growing at a CAGR of 78 percent. ZigBee dominated IEEE 802.15.4 and claimed the top share of node shipments at 4.5 million, narrowly beating out proprietary protocol offerings.
Anritsu Corp. announces its first LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) Carrier Aggregation (CA) test case submissions to RAN 5, demonstrating a strength in protocol conformance that extends across current 2G, 3G, and leading-edge LTE technology. This follows its recent world first in validating RF conformance test cases for CA in PTCRB. RAN 5 verification paves the way for protocol test validations and the inclusion of this technology in GCF and PTCRB certification.
Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, announced that it has further demonstrated its protocol test case leadership with the first LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) carrier aggregation (CA) test case verification submissions to RAN5. These submissions were based on initial verifications originally submitted by Anite to RAN5 in April of 2013. This key achievement is a stepping stone toward validation, leading to the inclusion of these test cases in both GCF and PTCRB device certification requirements.
Rockwell Collins recently conducted two live over-the-air tests of its Wideband High Frequency (WBHF) radio between Ottawa and Cedar Rapids, Iowa. During the tests, the team was able to demonstrate streaming full-color video and ad hoc Internet Protocol networking over an HF link.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the industry’s first software solution for decoding the Universal Flash Storage (UFS) protocol on oscilloscopes. The new protocol decoder provides design and validation engineers with a fast, easy way to validate and debug their UFS interfaces.
