3CC test upgrade allows data rates up to 50Mbit/s

3CC test upgrade allows data rates up to 50Mbit/s
Aeroflex’s TM500 LTE-A Test Mobile and the E500 Capacity Test System now both support the aggregation of three component carriers (3 CC). Carrier aggregation of 3 CC allows mobile network operators to achieve data rates of up to 450 Mbit/s on their LTE-A networks. 3 CC carrier aggregation enables network operators with limited contiguous frequency allocations to maximise 4G data speeds by combining these spectrum bands.

Software enhancements added to analysis/emulator platform

Software enhancements added to analysis/emulator platform
GL Communications has enhanced its OC-3/STM-1 and OC-12/STM-4 Analysis and Emulation Platform referred to as LightSpeed1000. The platform comes with software for overall monitoring, BERT, emulation, and protocol analysis with a price tag that compares favourably with similar test instruments at three times the price.

3GPP protocol certification follows PTCRB test case

3GPP protocol certification follows PTCRB test case
Mobile device and handset manufacturers will soon be able to certify that their products conform to the 3GPP protocols for ‘emergency services calls over IMS’ with the introduction by Anritsu of the first PTCRB-approved test case. The test and measurement company has added the new protocol test cases for IMS (IP Multimedia Sub-system) emergency services calls to the suite of test cases supported on the widely used ME7834L Protocol Conformance Test (PCT) system. It provides users of the PCT system with officially approved protocol test cases.

LTE-A test set achieves bi-directional Cat 6 capability

LTE-A test set achieves bi-directional Cat 6 capability
Aeroflex says its 7100 Digital Radio Test Set provides LTE-A carrier aggregation testing at full Cat 6 data rates of 300Mbps downlink and 50Mbps uplink simultaneously for LTE-A in FDD mode, and now also supports carrier aggregation in TDD mode. The Cat 6 capability is available via an upgrade to the standard 7100 software and the use of a RF combiner, allowing users to maximise the potential of their existing test equipment investment.

Single box solution covers LTE-WLAN test needs

Rohde & Schwarz has developed a compact, configurable single-box solution for testing the various aspects of LTE-WLAN traffic offload. Based on the R&S CMW500 wideband radio communication tester, the multistandard platform not only tests the terminal equipment of all common wireless communications standards, it also emulates an appropriate connection for a WLAN test. Rohde & Schwarz uses this feature for its single-box solution for testing LTE-WLAN traffic offload.

VNA test technology achieves improved antenna performance

The basic principles of, and methods for, measuring antenna performance were established decades ago. So it might appear reasonable for engineers developing or installing RF equipment to assume there is nothing new for them to learn in this field.
