Telecom Lead Europe: CETECOM, a test laboratory, has selected Anite, a provider of wireless device testing technology, to expand their test system capacity.
CETECOM aims at meeting an increased demand for LTE device testing.
Due to LTE’s growth, device manufacturers need to pass an increasing number of test cases to achieve GCF certification.
Anite is responsible for the verification of over 80 percent of the circa 460 LTE Release-8 protocol tests and offers a number of unique GCF validated test cases.
The Anite equipment will be installed at CETECOM’s facility in Essen Germany.
Anite’s floating license model enables CETECOM to share access to Anite’s LTE device testing software and hardware across their global locations.
Moreover, majority of CETECOM’s customers, which include chipset and device manufacturers, are already using Anite’s solutions for device pre-certification testing.
“In the process of certifying new devices, consistency of test equipment across the device ecosystem offers significant advantages, as it ensures a quicker and smoother acceptance process,” said Paul Beaver, products director at Anite.
“As a long standing partner of CETECOM, Anite offers leading LTE test case coverage, which made them a preferred choice in meeting this surge in demand for comprehensive LTE device testing,” said Thorsten Stabenau, director of Corporate Marketing and Sales at CETECOM.
