Cobham Wireless' TM500 network tester family is helping mobile operators to accelerate the deployment of high capacity networks. Already supporting key LTE-A features such as carrier aggregation of two and three component carriers, TDD/FDD carrier aggregation and eICIC, the TM500 now supports coordinated multipoint transmission/reception (CoMP), a major feature of 3GPP LTE-A Release 11.
Alcatel-Lucent is launching a new portfolio of LTE radio access network technologies that will enable operators to make a smooth transition to next-generation network architectures, including the application of NFV and the introduction of 5G services.
X-COM Systems LLC, a subsidiary of Bird Technologies, introduced the IQC91000A, the only RF and microwave signal recording and playback system that can capture, digitize, and store up to 1000 MHz of the electromagnetic spectrum in real time without gaps and missed signal events within any frequency range from 500 MHz to 18 GHz with 50 dB of spurious-free dynamic range, the highest in the industry.
Anite, a global leader in wireless network testing technology, announced that advanced forcing features and support for Video and SMS over LTE testing will be available for its Nemo Outdoor drive test, Nemo Handy handheld and Nemo Walker Air, in-building benchmarking tool range.
LTE-Advanced networks have been actively deployed around the world. At the end of 2014, LTE-Advanced covered its first 100 million people worldwide, just four years since the network’s inception. ABI Research predicts that the coverage will reach 1 billion in four more years.
Cobham Wireless, formerly the Wireless Test Business of Aeroflex, and NI, the provider of platform-based systems that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges, announced a worldwide partnership to service applications in cellular and connectivity with solutions based on PXI technology.
Anite has signed an agreement with China Academy of Information and Communications Technology whereby the two will collaborate on the development of new advanced test scenarios to verify the performance of TD-LTE and LTE-Advanced devices and network infrastructure.
Anritsu Co. announced it will feature a sophisticated, cloud-based connected car system for fleet tracking developed by the University of Hertfordshire in the UK using Anritsu network simulation technology in its stand (Hall 6/6F40) at Mobile World Congress 2015 (MWC), to be held March 2-5 in Barcelona.
