Spirent Conducts Live LTE Testing Demo at CTIA Wireless
Mar 23, 2010
Spirent’s LTE Test Solutions Validate Performance from Mobile Packet Core, through the Mobile Backhaul and the RF Network to the Subscriber Device
Sunnyvale, Calif. - (March 23, 2010) — As the industry races to deploy commercial LTE service and devices, Spirent Communications will demonstrate the performance capabilities of a pre-commercial LTE modem. The live demonstration at CTIA Wireless 2010 will test the RF performance of an LTE modem with a focus on real-world deployment challenges. Attendees will also be able to test drive Spirent’s awarding winning LTE infrastructure and device testing solutions.
For an LTE deployment to meet its technical and business objectives, devices will need to be verified against a new set of technical challenges prior to commercial launch. There are band-specific issues due to spectrum availability and the difficulties of effectively implementing Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology in a mobile device form factor. Performance testing is fundamental to the LTE ecosystem's ability to seamlessly deliver a full range of voice, data and media services, between devices, networks and multiple generations of wireless technologies, across the globe.
“Spirent has stood behind some of the world’s most successful wireless technology rollouts and today helping to ensure that LTE delivers on its promise,” said Nigel Wright, vice president of marketing, wireless, Spirent. “By leveraging Spirent’s technical expertise and years of experience, our customers greatly reduce the risk of migrating to LTE and instead deliver profitable, high performance and reliable networks, devices and services.”
Spirent’s LTE RF Performance solution offers an open, scalable multi-purpose test system that is expandable beyond initial testing needs to include LTE pre-conformance and validated conformance test cases. This flexible and powerful solution accurately reproduces real-world network conditions, yielding consistent and repeatable test results.
Already selected by leading mobile operators and their ecosystem partners for their commercial LTE launches, Spirent is the only company to offer solutions that validate performance from mobile backhaul through the mobile packet core to the mobile handset.
