 Anite's leading GTI test coverage enables manufacturers to accelerate device
                                  validation

Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, today
announced that it has been selected to supply additional device testing
systems to a major Chinese mobile operator for its TD-LTE device acceptance
programme. The selection follows several years of close collaboration between
the two parties and is a direct result of Anite's leading coverage of GTI*
(Global TD-LTE Initiative) validated TD-LTE network simulator interoperability
test scripts.

Anite was awarded the GTI Innovation Award last year for SAS, its
interoperability testing solution which is used by leading mobile operators
across the globe to accelerate device verification. The roll-out of TD-LTE
technology and investment in the area of device testing has intensified as a
result of China's recent allocation of 210 MHz of 4G spectrum to the country's
three mobile carriers for the provision of TD-LTE service.

By using Anite's device testing solutions, chipset and device manufacturers
are able to accelerate market introduction of new TD-LTE products. When both
the mobile operator and the device manufacturer use Anite's lab-based test
solutions consistent results can be achieved, resulting in reduced risk of
device rejection and an accelerated market introduction. Lab-based device
testing is quicker, more reliable and more cost-effective than device testing
conducted solely in the field. Devices can be tested more accurately and
rigorously through straightforward replication of a wide range of test
scenarios specified by the mobile operator.

'Working in close collaboration with one of China's leading mobile operators
demonstrates Anite's pivotal role in one of the most exciting and rapidly
growing global markets', says Paul Beaver, Products Director at Anite.

* GTI was formed in 2011 by leading operators including China Mobile to create
value for stakeholders across the TD-LTE ecosystem.
