Spirent Communications Launches 8100 X series and 8100 Q series

Spirent Communications announced an important expansion to its 8100 Carrier Acceptance and Conformance test portfolio with the addition of two new solutions: the 8100 X series and 8100 Q series. The new solutions address a critical need in the industry: a cost-effective answer to the growing capacity crunch in device performance testing as a result of the surge in new technologies and services. The 8100 X series focuses on modem-layer data testing while the 8100 Q series supports higher-layer services testing. The 8100 X series and 8100 Q series extend the capabilities of Spirent's 3G/4G 8100 Carrier Acceptance and Conformance systems to cost-effectively address this test capacity pain point. The 8100 X series is an advanced modem-layer data throughput performance test platform that addresses rapidly-evolving 3GPP LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation requirements, which are expected to drive a three-fold increase in test cases and test duration over the next twelve months. It supports multiple cells, downlink and uplink carrier aggregation, both FD-LTE and TD-LTE for global coverage, MIMO up to 4x2 and integrated fading. The 8100 X series platform is currently undergoing validation by leading operators in North America and China as they start mandating device acceptance criteria for carrier aggregation. The 8100 Q series provides comprehensive support for IMS and location technologies, allowing test teams to focus on application-layer specific issues such as device-to-device interoperability for VoLTE, RCS and A-GNSS positioning. Building on the innovation in Spirent's recently-released Elevate Test Framework, the 8100 Q Series allows true end-to-end interoperability testing and slashes test times with simultaneous testing of multiple devices, a first-in-class technique that dramatically increases testing productivity.
