Aeroflex Accelerates Roll Out of New Features for Handset Tester

February 18, 2009

With 3G Long Term Evolution (LTE) fast becoming a global phenomenon, Aeroflex has announced that it is to dramatically accelerate the roll out of the major new features planned for 2009 for its recently launched Aeroflex 7100 Digital Radio Test Set for LTE mobile device test.

“LTE is fast becoming a global phenomenon with network operators in all the current CDMA-dominated markets (US and Asia) in addition to the traditional GSM markets increasingly opting for LTE for their next generation mobile broadband networks,” said Bill Burrows, business development manager at Aeroflex Test Solutions. “The decision to accelerate our new feature roadmap for the Aeroflex 7100 is designed to support their similarly aggressive roll out plans and the demanding test requirements this places on developers designing new chip-sets, protocol stacks and devices supporting the LTE standard.”

The accelerated roll out of new features for the Aeroflex 7100 during 2009 relates to LTE/CDMA2000 inter-working, LTE/UTRAN & GERAN handover, TD-LTE mode and LTE mobile device conformance test.
