OULU, Finland, December 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

  Anite verifies that throughput rates are not limited by user equipment CPU
                                 performance

Anite, a global leader in wireless network testing technology, has
successfully verified LTE Cat 4 maximum data throughputs in a live LTE
network. Average peak throughputs as high as 144 Mbps were recorded in
TeliaSonera's commercial 4G network using Anite's industry-leading test
platform Nemo Outdoor and a Cat 4 LTE test terminal Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
TeliaSonera is the largest Nordic mobile network operator. Similar peak data
performance was achieved using the HiSilicon-based Huawei E3276 modem.

The test was performed by downloading data using the FTP protocol within
TeliaSonera's LTE network. This eliminates problems and bottlenecks caused by
factors coming from outside the LTE network and enables the verification of
high peak throughputs. In addition to live networks, Anite's engineers have
previously tested LTE data throughputs in lab environments with ideal radio
and core networks recording peak data throughputs as high as 148 Mbps.

"There has been some debate whether LTE Cat 4 maximum data throughput rates
can actually be measured with existing wireless network testing systems due to
limitations in the user equipment processing power. While testing LTE Cat 4
commercial phones and modems in the field, we have achieved excellent peak
data rates using FTP downloads. This clearly demonstrates that maximum peak
data rates can be reached and there are no CPU performance limitations in Nemo
tools," says Kai Ojala, the CTO of Anite's Network Testing business.
