Anritsu announces it has worked with Qualcomm Technologies to successfully demonstrat epeak download speeds of 2Gbps. The demonstration uses a mobile test device, powered by the Qualcomm®Snapdragon™ X24LTE modem and a network simulator sing 5xcarrier aggregation (5CC) with 4x4 MIMO, and 256-QAM modulationon all 5 carriers. Using the mobile test deviceand the Anritsu MT8821C LTE Simulator, Anritsu is able to successfully demonstratestable physical layer download speeds of 2Gbps. The solution will be demonstrated in Anritsu’s booth (Hall 6, Stand F40) at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
“Anritsu is pleased to once again work with Qualcomm Technologies in support of our latest advancements–breaking the multi-gigabit barrier for wireless communications,” said Paul Innis, Vice President and General Manager of Anritsu Company. “This achievement builds on our previous announcement with Qualcomm Technologies of LTE Category 16 in February 2016. We look forward to continuing to provide test solutions that enablethe development of consumer mobile devices that use this new data rate breakthrough.”
Utilizing newly introduced capability enables a multi-box configuration ofMT8821C to simulate threecontiguous LTE baseband cells on a single RF carrier.With3 MT8821Csimulators in a “master/slave” combination we can offer more aggregated carriers with higher-order MIMO than other solutions on the market.Cells can be placed in any licensed or unlicensed band using the RF capability to cover 350 MHz to 6 GHz.
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 the latest
3GPP technologies including VoLTE, Gigabit LTE, and Cellular IoT applications. - Communications Today Bureau
