Long-Term-Evolution (LTE) cellular systems have brought advanced wireless communications to many customers, but these require sophisticated testing before service can begin. As part of the required testing for LTE, Anritsu Co. recently exceeded 10,000 validated protocol conformance test (PCT) cases related to frequency bands for LTE and LTE Inter-RAT using the firm’s model ME7834 Mobile Device Test Platform. This tester can be used for PCT applications as well as for carrier acceptance testing (CAT) for LTE cellular systems.

Wade Hulon, General Manager and Vice President of Anritsu Co., explains:  “We are proud of our leadership position in LTE conformance testing, which continues with this milestone achievement. Network operators, device suppliers and chipset manufacturers rely on the ME7834 platform to ensure LTE and 3G devices meet the standards specified for protocol conformance to ensure a trouble-free market introduction of new products and technologies. By continuing to add to the capability of the ME7834, we are providing the LTE community with a fully integrated test system that ensures device compliance faster and more thoroughly.”
