OULU, Finland, October 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Anite's Nemo Outdoor provides operators with a wide range of LTE-A and carrier
aggregation network testing capabilities

Anite, the industry-leading wireless network measurement solutions provider,
today announced that it is first to release support for a commercial LTE-A and
carrier aggregation ("CA") testing solution for mobile network operators and
network infrastructure vendors. Using the industry-leading test platform Nemo
Outdoor, operators can monitor the performance and quality of their LTE-A
networks.

LTE-A is the next stage in mobile telecommunications, which will allow
operators to offer wireless services equivalent to 'fibre to your phone'. CA
is a method used in LTE-A which allows mobile operators to increase the
bandwidth and, consequently, the bitrates. This is accomplished by combining
spectrum resources. Each aggregated carrier is referred to as a component
carrier, and each component carrier corresponds to a serving cell.

LTE-A CA measurements with Nemo Outdoor provide detailed information about the
primary and secondary component carriers, including physical cell ID, signal
levels and quality. Also link adaptation and radio resource allocation can be
monitored among many other detailed LTE parameters. The new carrier
aggregation testing feature complements the testing capabilities of existing
mobile technologies (2G, 3G, 4G) in addition to supporting the analysis and
optimisation of heterogeneous networks where a combination of macro, pico and
small cells are deployed to maximise coverage and capacity.

"Staying ahead in a fast-changing competitive environment means being first to
deliver new functionality. The launch of LTE-A carrier aggregation testing
with Nemo Outdoor underlines Anite's leadership in cutting-edge technologies"
says Petri Toljamo, Managing Director at Anite's Network Testing business. He
continues, "Key industry players are already preparing for LTE-A and carrier
aggregation deployments. With our help operators can make sure their networks
are optimised for providing the high data rates their customers are
demanding."

Nemo Outdoor with LTE-A carrier aggregation testing capabilities can now be
demonstrated to selected customers. Contact us at nemo.sales@anite.com .
