Telecom Lead India: Collaboration between Samsung and
T&M major Anritsu to bring eMBMS technology to offer LTE broadcast services
has paid off.
Samsung has demonstrated clear reception capabilities of
LTE broadcast services using evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service
(eMBMS) technology using Rapid Test Designer (RTD) and MD8430A from Anritsu to
simulate the LTE network environment.
eMBMS technology allows the LTE network infrastructure to
deliver broadcast services such as TV. It enables carriers to adjust coverage
and capacity as needed.
Anritsu’s RTD delivers rich test features using its
flexible flowcharting user interface. Samsung engineers were able to create the
eMBMS demonstration using RTD’s graphical script design to drive the execution
of the test simulation on an Anritsu MD8430A LTE signaling tester.
Kenji Tanaka, executive vice president at Anritsu, said
the demonstration shows how Anritsu helps LTE device makers prove their
leading-edge technology in an intensely competitive market where reducing the product
launch cycle time is critical to success.
According to Inyup Kang, executive vice
president at Samsung Electronics, the company has used Anritsu test
equipment from the very beginning of its LTE development programs. Anritsu RTD
and MD8430A have made a significant contribution for creating a strong position
for Samsung in the LTE device market.
