Telecom Lead Asia: Chinese telecom gear maker ZTE in
collaboration with Anite has successfully proven the first TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA Inter-Radio
Access Technology (RAT) conformance test cases.
These TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA Inter-RAT conformance test cases
will allow chipset manufacturers and handset vendors developing dual-mode
TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA devices to begin testing.
With the TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA Inter-RAT conformance test
cases, dual-mode handsets will allow users access to high speed data services
offered by both TD-LTE and TD-SCDMA. Also, the cases will pave the way for
conformance testing prior to commercial network launches.
“The fiercely competitive nature of the industry
means that getting a mature device to market in the quickest time is crucial
for commercial success,” said Paul Beaver, products director at Anite’s
Handset Testing Business.
Anite said that the TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA Inter-RAT test cases
are part of its Conformance Toolset, which the company claims the industry
leading solution for LTE conformance testing.
The Conformance Toolset is the first solution in the
industry to support TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA Inter-RAT test cases.
“Anite’s device test solutions, and in particular
Conformance Toolset, are extremely user friendly, versatile and robust. These
benefits meet our needs on several different levels and allow us to cut costs
and accelerate our time to market for devices,” said Huoling Li, product
manager of ZTE’s LTE chipset product line.
With prior experience in the field of TD-LTE conformance
testing, Anite claims it has been responsible for more than 90 percent of all
TD-LTE test case verification submissions to 3GPP RAN5.
Anite claims the top position in the TD-LTE device testing
Very recently, Anite announced that its device
conformance and interoperability testing portfolio leads the TD-LTE device
testing market in terms of test case availability and coverage.
