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.
