LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Renesas Mobile Corporation, a premier
supplier of advanced cellular platforms, and Anritsu Company, a global leader
in wireless test solutions, announce that Renesas Mobile will demonstrate
advanced LTE functionality of its MP5232 platform using the Anritsu MD8475A
multimode network simulator at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics
Show (CES), to be held in Las Vegas, NV from January 8-11. Demonstrations of
Category 4 throughput and Voice-over LTE (VoLTE) will be conducted using the
MD8475A and a reference design incorporating the Renesas Mobile chipset at its
booth in the Venetian Hotel (Toscana 3605).

"Renesas Mobile has worked closely with Anritsu on our Cat-4 LTE development
and production, and the MD8475A signaling tester has played a key role," said
Heikki Tenhunen, Senior Vice President Renesas Mobile Corporation.

"Anritsu is pleased to support Renesas Mobile with LTE network simulation
capability for this demonstration. Our MD8475A signaling tester is unique in
its capability to provide one-box simulation of complex multimode wireless
networks, including VoLTE servers," said Wade Hulon, General Manager and Vice
President of Anritsu Company. "The flexible design of the MD8475A allows it to
match customer needs today and in the future, as both data rates and network
complexity increase even further."

The MP5232 platform sets a new benchmark in terms of levels of integration and
performance for fully featured high-volume LTE devices. At its heart, the
Renesas Mobile modem, deployed in over two billion devices to date, delivers
the industry's highest throughput and low power multi-mode FDD and TDD-LTE
Category 4 capabilities. Combined on a single die with a state-of-the-art
application processor, the platform delivers a no-compromise user experience
with multi-core computing power, industry-leading graphics, video and imaging
capabilities. The platform also includes advanced RF transceivers, power
management and audio solutions. This highly integrated smartphone platform is
delivered fully tested and certified to enable customers to bring new
generations of fully-featured LTE/HSPA+ smartphones to market in as little as
six to nine months.

The MD8475A Signaling Tester is a compact, Windows 7-based tester capable of
emulating two base stations or 2x2 MIMO, with available formats, including LTE
(FDD and TDD), W-CDMA/HSPA+, TD-SCDMA/HSPA, GSM/(E)-GPRS, and CDMA2000. Both
packet-switched and circuit-switched calls are supported, with available
VoLTE, circuit-switched fallback (CSFB), and Simultaneous Voice-LTE (SV-LTE)
functionality. End-to-end and data throughput testing is supported by the
tester to LTE Category 4 rates, with the capability to install user-supplied
servers inside the MD8475A or to connect external servers. Anritsu's
SmartStudio GUI provides easy graphical control of the MD8475A, and the
internal state machine emulates real network operation without the need for
scripts.
