Anite's SAS provides operator with a wide range of carrier aggregation testing
                                  capability

Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, today
announced that a leading American mobile operator has implemented Anite test
scripts for the qualification of LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) devices in its rigorous
acceptance programme. Device and chipset manufacturers use the LTE-A testing
capability within SAS, Anite's interoperability testing solution, to
accelerate acceptance of new LTE-A devices by the operator.

These test cases assess the protocol signalling related to LTE-A Carrier
Aggregation (CA). Key industry players are already preparing for LTE-A, the
next stage in mobile telecommunications, which will allow operators to offer
wireless services equivalent to 'fibre to your phone'. LTE-A CA enables mobile
operators to achieve superior data rates through combining spectrum resources.

Anite's SAS provides mobile operators and device manufacturers with greater
confidence as they prepare a new device for launch. Proven to cut device test
time by 50% compared to performing similar tests in the field, SAS is also
recognised for supporting a large number of Tier-1 operator device acceptance
programmes.

Anite has recently made several announcements related to its achievements
within LTE-Advanced: In February, Anite announced that it had achieved peak
data rates with commercial devices for LTE-A Carrier Aggregation. Last month,
Anite was first to release a verified eICIC enriched LTE-Advanced device
testing solution. Finally, Anite 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). These accomplishments highlight the advanced capability of the
Anite 9000, Anite's network simulator platform for lab-based device testing,
which is used by the industry to execute development, conformance,
interoperability and performance testing.

"Anite's cutting-edge technology roadmap is a cornerstone to its key
partnerships with leading mobile operators," says Paul Beaver, Products
Director at Anite. He continues, "This additional significant milestone will
help to accelerate new highly capable devices to market."
