FLEET, England, April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Milestone Achieved Through Close Collaboration With Leading Device

Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, today
announced that it is first to offer chipset and device manufacturers the
ability to verify their 4x4 Downlink (DL) MIMO designs and products,
accelerating the development of LTE and LTE-Advanced devices. The milestone
was achieved in close collaboration with a leading device manufacturer using
Anite's Development Toolset - an easy to use solution for early stage testing.
Anite's leading technology roadmap along with its comprehensive device testing
solution contributed to the device manufacturer's selection of Anite as its
testing partner.

Advanced MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) antenna configurations where
both the base station and the device are equipped with multiple
transmit/receive antennas are leading to an increased need for device testing
prior to market launch. MIMO, a key feature in LTE-Advanced, enables operators
and device manufacturers to offer superior data rates without requiring
additional bandwidth or transmit power. 4x4 DL MIMO capable devices require
greater antenna separation/isolation and are therefore used in devices with
larger form factors such as phablets, laptops with inbuilt modems and set-top
boxes, as well as in various automotive applications. Anite's capability to
test 4x4 DL MIMO follows its earlier success in demonstrating Carrier
Aggregation of two component carriers of 20 MHz each, resulting in Category
6/7 Downlink data rates of 300 Mbps.

'Complex antenna configurations such as 4x4 DL MIMO require advanced testing
capability. Anite's leading product roadmap and its collaborative engagement
with key industry partners enable device manufacturers to accelerate their
designs of LTE and LTE-Advanced products', says Paul Beaver Products Director
at Anite.
