Renesas Mobile to Demonstrate Advanced LTE Chipset Functionality Using Anritsu MD8475A Multimode Network Simulator
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Renesas Mobile Corporation, a premier supplier of advanced cellular platforms, and Anritsu Company, a global leader in wireless test solutions, announce that Renesas Mobile will demonstrate advanced LTE functionality of its MP5232 platform using the Anritsu MD8475A multimode network simulator at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), to be held in Las Vegas, NV from January 8-11. Demonstrations of Category 4 throughput and Voice-over LTE (VoLTE) will be conducted using the MD8475A and a reference design incorporating the Renesas Mobile chipset at its booth in the Venetian Hotel (Toscana 3605).
“Renesas Mobile has worked closely with Anritsu on our Cat-4 LTE development and production, and the MD8475A signaling tester has played a key role,” said Heikki Tenhunen, Senior Vice President Renesas Mobile Corporation.
“Anritsu is pleased to support Renesas Mobile with LTE network simulation capability for this demonstration. Our MD8475A signaling tester is unique in its capability to provide one-box simulation of complex multimode wireless networks, including VoLTE servers,” said Wade Hulon, General Manager and Vice President of Anritsu Company. “The flexible design of the MD8475A allows it to match customer needs today and in the future, as both data rates and network complexity increase even further.”
The MP5232 platform sets a new benchmark in terms of levels of integration and performance for fully featured high-volume LTE devices. At its heart, the Renesas Mobile modem, deployed in over two billion devices to date, delivers the industry’s highest throughput and low power multi-mode FDD and TDD-LTE Category 4 capabilities. Combined on a single die with a state-of-the-art application processor, the platform delivers a no-compromise user experience with multi-core computing power, industry-leading graphics, video and imaging capabilities. The platform also includes advanced RF transceivers, power management and audio solutions. This highly integrated smartphone platform is delivered fully tested and certified to enable customers to bring new generations of fully-featured LTE/HSPA+ smartphones to market in as little as six to nine months.
The MD8475A Signaling Tester is a compact, Windows 7-based tester capable of emulating two base stations or 2×2 MIMO, with available formats, including LTE (FDD and TDD), W-CDMA/HSPA+, TD-SCDMA/HSPA, GSM/(E)-GPRS, and CDMA2000. Both packet-switched and circuit-switched calls are supported, with available VoLTE, circuit-switched fallback (CSFB), and Simultaneous Voice-LTE (SV-LTE) functionality. End-to-end and data throughput testing is supported by the tester to LTE Category 4 rates, with the capability to install user-supplied servers inside the MD8475A or to connect external servers. Anritsu’s SmartStudio GUI provides easy graphical control of the MD8475A, and the internal state machine emulates real network operation without the need for scripts.
