Taiwan National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) Selects Anite’s Propsim® Channel Emulator for Over-the-Air Testing of TD-LTE Devices

April 9, 2013

FLEET, Hampshire, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Anite enables NCTU to accurately test the performance of TD-LTE mobile

devices and optimise the end-user experience

Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, today announced that
NCTU, a leading university in Taiwan, with a dedicated 4G LTE Broadband Mobile Lab, has
selected Anite’s Propsim(R) radio channel emulator for its MIMO Over-The-Air (OTA) testing

MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output), a key feature of LTE, introduces complex radio
conditions leading to new challenges within development, testing and performance
optimisation of mobile devices. In order to achieve accurate results, performance testing
of MIMO enabled mobile devices needs to be conducted under realistic, repeatable and
controllable radio channel conditions. Anite’s Propsim(R) channel emulator enables NCTU to
simultaneously and reliably test all parts of the TD-LTE mobile device that impact the
end-user experience (antennas, RF front end, baseband processing).

The market leading Propsim(R) radio channel emulators are designed to replicate
wireless environments and isolate performance issues in order to ensure the reliable
functionality of any broadband wireless technology, such as TD-LTE.

“The Propsim radio channel emulator is a core part of our MIMO OTA testing system.”
said I-Wei Chen, Executive Director of Broadband Mobile Lab at NCTU. “One of our key goals
is to set up a very close-to-reality lab environment for testing LTE devices in order to
reveal the true performance experienced by the end-user. Anite’s Propsim(R) channel
emulator perfectly matches our requirements by providing accurate and repeatable fading
channel emulations.”

“We are delighted to see leading laboratories such as NCTU carry out true MIMO OTA
testing of TD-LTE devices through the use of our Propsim(R) channel emulators.”, said Paul
Beaver, Anite’s Product Director. “TD-LTE device manufacturers in Taiwan can now perform
pre-testing domestically, which will greatly help to speed up development of new TD-LTE
capable mobile devices.”
