Leading capability enables chipset manufacturers to accelerate development of
                              new Wi-Fi products

Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, today
announced that it is first to launch an 802.11ac (Wi-Fi) capable standalone
channel emulation solution with continuous 160 MHz bandwidth support. This new
capability will allow leading chipset manufacturers to accelerate development
of new 802.11ac Phase two Wi-Fi products.

Bandwidth-intensive applications such as HD video and gaming require reliable
connections to guarantee a superior end-user experience. Correct design and
implementation of 802.11ac Phase two products will enable multiple Wi-Fi users
to simultaneously access a wired-like network connection.

Leading Wi-Fi chipset, device and infrastructure manufacturers already use
Anite's Propsim 802.11ac Testing Tools to verify the performance of their
802.11ac Phase one products. These Wi-Fi products support bandwidths of up to
80 MHz, resulting in data rates of up to 1.3Gbps. Phase two of the 802.11ac
standard supports both 160 MHz continuous and 80+80 MHz bandwidths and is
expected to provide data rates of more than 3Gbps.

Anite's Propsim is currently the only radio channel emulator that provides
continuous 160 MHz bandwidth support for 802.11ac testing. This unique
capability enables wireless equipment manufacturers to verify higher data
rates as well as implement advanced 802.11ac features such as multi-user MIMO
and beam-forming.

"Anite is the first vendor to provide 802.11ac performance testing tools,
enabling our customers to launch new, quality products ahead of schedule. This
is further evidence of Anite's technology leadership and the strength of our
wide-ranging and future-proofed channel emulation solutions" says Paul Beaver,
Products Director at Anite.
