FLEET, England, September 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

 Anite's expertise enables chipset and device manufacturers to accelerate the
                        development of LTE-A products

Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, today
announced that it has achieved validation for the most number of LTE-Advanced
(LTE-A) Carrier Aggregation (CA) protocol test cases by the PTCRB (a wireless
device certification forum led by North American mobile operators). Anite used
its market-leading Conformance Toolset for protocol conformance testing to
validate the greatest number of distinct LTE-A CA test cases, more than any
other testing equipment vendor and in more inter-band combinations.  

Anite worked closely with leading chipset and device manufacturers from the
U.S., Korea and China to develop and validate these test cases which will now
become part of the PTCRB device certification requirements mandated by North
American mobile operators. Anite submitted these test cases to RAN5 for
verification in June this year. As a result of Anite's expertise in driving
the development of LTE-A CA testing capability, device and chipset
manufacturers are able to accelerate the development of LTE-A products.

LTE-A, the next stage in mobile telecommunications, will extend the features
of LTE to deliver the equivalent of a high speed, fixed-line broadband
experience to mobile device users. LTE-A CA enables mobile operators to
achieve superior data rates through combining spectrum resources. Anite
expects to validate LTE-A CA test cases for GCF (Global Certification Forum)
member operators at the October 2013 GCF meeting in further FDD- and TDD-LTE

"These LTE-A CA validations further underline Anite's protocol test case
leadership and the strength of our collaborative relationships with leading
chipset and device manufacturers", says Paul Beaver, Products Director at
Anite. He continues, "Along with clear product maturity, these close
collaborations enable us to continue to pioneer the development of new testing
capability for cutting-edge technologies such as LTE-A and beyond.
