Telecom Lead America: Mobile device testing solutions provider Anite announced the validation of the first GCF (Global Certification Forum) TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA Inter-RAT (Inter-Radio Access Technology) test cases.
Anite claims that it now supports all of the GCF LTE protocol test needs for TD-LTE mobile operators ahead of their network launches.
The TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA Inter-RAT conformance test cases enable chipset manufacturers and handset vendors to develop and certify dual-mode TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA devices. The availability of these test cases is key to accelerating the launch of dual technology handsets in China.
Anite was the first test solution vendor to successfully prove the first TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA Inter-RAT conformance test cases in June last year.
Anite’s test case coverage for TD-LTE protocol testing means it provides support for TD-LTE operators. This includes test case availability for TD-LTE bands 38, 39 and 40 and for the interworking between various technologies: TD-LTE/GERAN (2G), TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA and LTE TDD/FDD. LTE FDD technology has so far been commercially deployed in more than 50 countries worldwide.
