FLEET, England, November 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, today
announced that together with HiSilicon it has verified Release 10 LTE-Advanced
(LTE-A) protocols in HiSilicon's newly developed LTE-A chipset.

Anite's early availability of key features within its testing solutions has
enabled the industry to develop LTE-A products in line with market
requirements. The Anite solution was used to verify HiSilicon's new chipset
Balong720, which is the world's first LTE Cat6 platform supporting 20 MHz + 20
MHz Carrier Aggregation (CA). The close collaboration has resulted in the
verification of new 3GPP RAN5 LTE-A CA protocol conformance test cases, using
Anite's Conformance Toolset - a market-leading protocol conformance and
performance testing solution. LTE-A CA provides end-users with superior data
rates through combining spectrum resources.

Anite has achieved a number of key industry milestones over the years, such as
the first TD-LTE test case verification submissions to 3GPP RAN5 in May 2010
and the industry-first TD-LTE CA test case submissions in July 2013. To date,
more than half of all TD-LTE test case verification submissions to 3GPP RAN5
have been provided by Anite using Hisilicon product.

'Anite's close collaboration with Hisilicon has played an important role in
advancing key features of LTE technology,' says Paul Beaver, Products Director
at Anite. He continues, 'This underlines Anite's leadership position as a
driving force behind the development of 3GPP RAN5 test cases and their
subsequent inclusion in the device certification requirements of the Global
Certification Forum (GCF).'
