FLEET, England, December 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

 Standardised test cases enable mobile operators and device manufacturers to
                          reduce verification costs

Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, today
announced that it has launched full support for the Global Certification Forum
(GCF) LTE data throughput performance testing requirements. This will enable
mobile operators and device manufacturers to cost-efficiently test the data
throughput performance of new devices in real-world conditions.

Subscribers expect to access more data intensive mobile services on the move
and mobile operators are keen to verify the performance of new mobile devices
before market introduction in order to ensure end-users' expectations are met.
Having an open 3GPP standard for measuring data throughput performance (such
as download speeds) allows device manufacturers to verify that performance
earlier in a device's R&D lifecycle and be confident that results remain
relevant to a wide range of operators.

The test cases measure the application layer data throughput performance of a
mobile device by replicating various challenging real-world propagation
conditions, such as those caused by fading and multi-path reflections. These
conditions are created in a repeatable laboratory environment using Anite's
Conformance Toolset , based on the Anite 9000's integrated fading capability.
This provides a cost effective upgrade to existing Anite protocol test

PTCRB, the wireless device certification forum run by North American mobile
operators, is expected to adopt similar requirements in the coming months and
Anite's Conformance Toolset customers can use the same platform to run PTCRB
mandated data performance tests.

'Device manufacturers and mobile operators now have access to complete GCF LTE
data performance testing capability as a simple upgrade to their existing
conformance test solutions, which is acknowledged as the industry's most
reliable and easy to use conformance testing solution', says Paul Beaver,
Products Director at Anite. He continues, 'This will lead to more
cost-effective development of devices that are more likely to meet end-users
download speed expectations.'
