Test System Demonstrates Emulation of the Largest Number of UEs Over the LTE RF Interface

Aeroflex and NetHawk (recently acquired by EXFO) announce that they have developed a complete system for LTE network capacity testing over RF with real data services and applications. The EAST500 is a single integrated test system based upon proven test solutions: Aeroflex's LTE RF air interface technology integrated with NetHawk's load test capability. The EAST500 hardware is flexible and scalable depending upon the number of UEs and number of cells required. The system offers true end-to-end LTE load testing over RF in both FDD (frequency division duplex) and TDD (time division duplex) environments. Aeroflex's installed base allows EAST500 to dramatically reduce the time taken by manufacturers to get up and running. Compared to alternative solutions, the EAST500 reduces test time from months to days.
