New Features for 7100 LTE Handset Tester as LTE Goes Global
With LTE (3G Long Term Evolution) fast becoming a global phenomenon, Aeroflex has announced that it plans to dramatically accelerate the roll out of the major new features planned for 2009 for its recently launched Aeroflex 7100 Digital Radio Test Set for LTE mobile device test. The accelerated roll out of new features for the Aeroflex 7100 during 2009 relates to LTE/CDMA2000 inter-working, LTE/UTRAN & GERAN handover, TD-LTE mode and LTE mobile device conformance test. The Aeroflex 7100 will introduce the ability to test LTE/CDMA2000 network selection and Idle Mode handoff in Q2 CY2009, followed by Active Mode handover in Q3 CY2009. From Q4 CY2009, the Aeroflex 7100 will provide the ability to test backward compatibility with existing 2G/3G networks by simulating LTE, WCDMA and GSM.
