Anite Wins GTI (Global TD-LTE Initiative) Innovation Award

March 19, 2013

FLEET, England, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Recognition underlines Anite’s technology leadership in wireless test


Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, was presented with an
Innovation Award by a representative of China Mobile at an evening event hosted by Global
TD-LTE Initiative (GTI) during the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona on the
26th of February. The award recognised Anite’s achievements as a leading vendor of
wireless test solutions and in particular its interoperability test solution, SAS.

Anite’s SAS interoperability solution supports the largest number of tests for Tier-1
device acceptance programmes. It has enabled Anite to become the first device test vendor
to achieve the 80 per cent validation target for GTI Priority-1 TD-LTE interoperability
test cases for device functionality and performance in LTE Bands 38 and 40. This landmark
target is important as it highlights Anite’s leading position in developing mobile
operator device acceptance test cases.

Major mobile operators around the world are using lab-based device testing as it
offers a cost-effective way to perform controllable, repeatable and automated device
testing. These operators are now looking to ensure that the next generation of mobile
devices deliver on the promise of LTE-Advanced (LTE-A). In the run up to the Mobile World
Congress, Anite announced that it had achieved peak data rates with commercial devices for
LTE-A carrier aggregation – requirements driven by leading US operators. The availability
of reliable high speed data rates is growing in importance as subscribers increasingly
want to access data intensive mobile services ‘on the move’.

Mike Bonin, Managing Director at Anite, who accepted the award, said, “We are excited
to have received this award from GTI for our contributions to the TD-LTE community. This
recognition demonstrates that Anite, with its interoperability and performance test
solutions, plays a key role in ensuring that new devices are developed and launched
according to end-users’ expectations.”
