Spirent eAirAccess recognized for its role in advancing the development of LTE technologies
Sunnyvale, Calif.- December 14, 2010 – Spirent Communications, the leader in testing solutions for wireless networks, devices and services today announced that Spirent’s eAirAccess wireless network emulator was presented the 2010 LTE Visionary Award. The award was presented by Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC) in conjunction with Crossfire Media.
eAirAccess is a true multi-radio access technology (RAT) network emulator used for testing mobile devices. Its real-time state machine emulates an entire post-deployment environment including LTE, WCDMA, GSM, HSPA, CDMA, EV-DO and Evolved High-Rate Packet Data (eHRPD) services, with multiple cells available per technology.
“Spirent’s eAirAccess is uniquely designed to address the complexity around handovers between radio access technologies, especially since LTE deployment will need to coexist with legacy networks such as CDMA/EV-DO or UMTS/HSPA for many years,” said Hesham ElHamahmy, vice-president at Spirent’s wireless division. “The eAirAccess solution has already found commercial success and it’s an honor to now be recognized by the industry.”
“Spirent’s achievement in advancing 4G through LTE development is worthy of being selected as recipient of the 4GWE LTE Visionary Award,” said Carl Ford, co-founder and community developer, Crossfire Media. “Spirent is an innovator and one to watch for the next evolution of solutions.”
“It is an honor to bestow Spirent with this award. Their contribution toward the future of mobile broadband is commendable,” stated Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I look forward to more innovation from Spirent in the future.”
