Anite launches enhanced emulation capacity for LTE-A testing

FLEET, England, February 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Unrivalled multi-link emulation capacity in a single Propsim F32 box enables up to 150% CAPEX saving

Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, today launched a major multi-link emulation enhancement to its Propsim channel emulator platform, significantly increasing the performance testing capacity of LTE-Advanced multi-mode chipsets, devices and base stations and enabling users to save up to 150% in test tools CAPEX compared to investing in multi-box solutions.

The enhanced multi-link emulation capacity in a single Propsim F32 box eliminates the need to synchronise several emulator boxes - this speeds up the development and verification of new devices and base stations. With this new platform release, users are able to create larger test scenarios in a lab environment, with twice as many devices and base stations as any other solution available on the market. LTE-A device testing with large lab setups enable users to conduct more realistic performance testing, accurately testing the end user experience in the live network.

Propsim F32 enables comprehensive testing of new LTE-Advanced features such as Carrier Aggregation, ICIC and eICIC (enhanced Inter Cell Interference Coordination) using real-world like scenarios for each user independently. With enhanced emulation capacity, Propsim F32 now supports performance testing of four LTE devices and four LTE base station cells, or up to ten LTE devices connected to two base stations when conducting Carrier Aggregation or handover testing.

'Users benefit from huge productivity gains thanks to our latest Propsim innovation, which offers twice the testing capacity of any other available solution', says Paul Beaver, Products Director at Anite. He continues: 'The unique multi-link emulation capacity coupled with leading LTE test scenario creation tools makes Propsim an unrivalled testing solution for LTE-A Carrier Aggregation and HetNet performance testing.'

The multi-link emulation capacity enhancement is available as a simple software upgrade for customers with an Anite maintenance contract. The platform enhancement increases the emulation capacity of Virtual Drive Testing, Over-The-Air Testing and Advanced MIMO Testing.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets.
