FLEET, England, February 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Unrivalled multi-link emulation capacity in a single Propsim F32 box enables
up to 150% CAPEX saving

Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, today
launched a major multi-link emulation enhancement to its Propsim channel
emulator platform, significantly increasing the performance testing capacity
of LTE-Advanced multi-mode chipsets, devices and base stations and enabling
users to save up to 150% in test tools CAPEX compared to investing in
multi-box solutions.

The enhanced multi-link emulation capacity in a single Propsim F32 box
eliminates the need to synchronise several emulator boxes - this speeds up the
development and verification of new devices and base stations. With this new
platform release, users are able to create larger test scenarios in a lab
environment, with twice as many devices and base stations as any other
solution available on the market. LTE-A device testing with large lab setups
enable users to conduct more realistic performance testing, accurately testing
the end user experience in the live network.

Propsim F32 enables comprehensive testing of new LTE-Advanced features such as
Carrier Aggregation, ICIC and eICIC (enhanced Inter Cell Interference
Coordination) using real-world like scenarios for each user independently.
With enhanced emulation capacity, Propsim F32 now supports performance testing
of four LTE devices and four LTE base station cells, or up to ten LTE devices
connected to two base stations when conducting Carrier Aggregation or handover

'Users benefit from huge productivity gains thanks to our latest Propsim
innovation, which offers twice the testing capacity of any other available
solution', says Paul Beaver, Products Director at Anite. He continues: 'The
unique multi-link emulation capacity coupled with leading LTE test scenario
creation tools makes Propsim an unrivalled testing solution for LTE-A Carrier
Aggregation and HetNet performance testing.'

The multi-link emulation capacity enhancement is available as a simple
software upgrade for customers with an Anite maintenance contract. The
platform enhancement increases the emulation capacity of Virtual Drive Testing
, Over-The-Air Testing and Advanced MIMO Testing .
