Tool allows operators to test and verify the capacity of LTE-Advanced wireless networks
Anite, a global leader in wireless network testing technology, today announced that its latest version of Nemo Outdoor supports Carrier Aggregation (CA) and Category 6 devices. Nemo Outdoor is a laptop-based drive test solution for wireless network testing which supports over 270 terminals and scanning receivers from a range of vendors and all major network technologies.
Operators worldwide are currently in the testing and trialing phase of carrier aggregation and are launching LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) networks with the first phase of Cat 6 devices, using two carrier components with downlink bandwidths of 20 MHz. The alignment of the latest network features and testing application capabilities is crucial for operators to verify and optimise LTE-A features to ensure they are in line with market requirements.
With LTE-A carrier aggregation, mobile operators can achieve superior data rates through combined spectrum resources. For end-users this means faster access to the internet, smoother content streaming and improved mobile services.
"Demonstrating Cat 6 peak data rates shows Anite's commitment to ensure that our products support the latest wireless broadband technologies," says Kai Ojala, CTO at Anite Network Testing. "We have achieved application data throughput of 293 Mbps with a 40 MHz bandwidth using two-component carrier aggregation and the latest test terminals with Anite's Nemo Outdoor test solution in a laboratory environment."
