Aeroflex and Innowireless have entered into a technology partnership designed to accelerate the development of 3GPP LTE mobile devices for subscribers. Under the terms of the partnership, the two companies will combine their collective engineering skills and resources to collaborate on the development of a 3G LTE mobile test tool. The new 3G LTE mobile test tool is expected to be available in the fourth quarter of 2008, and will be available through Aeroflex sales channels.

The test tool will incorporate a suite of RF measurements for characterization, calibration, and verification purposes. It will be extendable to allow engineers to test, stress, and debug the IP data handling capabilities of their designs in a controlled laboratory environment. The tool provides the flexibility to configure a wide range of network parameters through a Windows interface. It will incorporate flexible base station emulation and parametric tests into one integrated unit.
