  Anite acquires Propsim® channel emulation product set from Elektrobit and
          launches internal fading capability for existing portfolio

Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, today
announces the acquisition of the Propsim® channel emulation product set from
Elektrobit, a global leader in software and hardware solutions for the
wireless and automotive industries. The acquisition is in line with Anite's
wider strategy to further expand its product portfolio within Performance
testing.

The market leading Propsim® branded portfolio of radio channel emulators are
designed to replicate wireless environments and isolate performance issues of
wireless equipment in order to ensure the reliable functionality of any
broadband wireless technology, such as 4G LTE. The acquisition of the Propsim®
product set enables Anite to broaden its product offering and expand into new
customer segments, including network infrastructure interoperability testing.

The evolution of wireless technologies, such as LTE and their complex antenna
configurations is leading to an increased need for Performance testing in
order to maintain high end-user experience. The emulation of different radio
channel conditions within a laboratory environment is a key enabler in
providing comprehensive Performance test solutions.

Anite today also announces the launch of an internal baseband fading
capability for all existing handset test products that utilise the latest
Anite 9000 hardware platform. Existing users are able to add fading technology
to their test systems as a software upgrade. This is a cost effective option
for users that want to address the latest performance test requirements with
their existing products; especially data throughput testing for both GCF
certification and network operator acceptance test plans. This launch is
complementary to the Propsim® portfolio acquisition, and together both
developments help give Anite a comprehensive ability to address the
Performance test needs of customers developing and testing interoperability of
wireless equipment.

Chris Humphrey, Anite's Chief Executive said, "The increasing market demand
for more integrated wireless laboratory test solutions makes Anite a natural
fit for Propsim® . Anite's established market and technology leadership, and
its substantial global sales and support footprint, combined with the
acknowledged expertise and market leading channel emulation solutions the
Propsim® brand, creates a dedicated supplier with a more complete product
offering."
