The demonstration used a mobile test device, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X24 LTE modem and a network simulator using 5x carrier aggregation (5CC) with 4×4 MIMO, and 256-QAM modulation on all 5 carriers.
Earlier, Anritsu and Qualcomm Technologies worked together on testing LTE Category 16 in February 2016.
Anritsu, a leading test solutions company, has supplied the mobile test device and the Anritsu MT8821C LTE Simulator to demonstrate stable physical layer download speeds of 2 Gbps. Anritsu will demonstrate the testing solution at Anritsu’s booth (Hall 6, Stand F40) at Mobile World Congress (MWC 2018) in Barcelona, Spain.
Paul Innis, vice president and general manager of Anritsu Company. “We look forward to continuing to provide test solutions that enable the development of consumer mobile devices that use this new data rate breakthrough.”
Anritsu’s testing capabilities enable Qualcomm engineering team to multi-box configuration of MT8821C to simulate three contiguous LTE baseband cells on a single RF carrier. With 3 MT8821C simulators in a “master/slave” combination Anritsu can offer more aggregated carriers with higher-order MIMO than other solutions on the market.
In addition, testing engineers can place cells in any licensed or unlicensed band using the RF capability to cover 350 MHz to 6 GHz.
Anritsu said the MT8821C is a scalable LTE network simulator, product for RF parametric testing and verification of 2G/3G/4G smartphones, tablets, M2M modules and IoT devices. It supports VoLTE, Gigabit LTE, and Cellular IoT applications.
