Wireless devices are quickly developing into multimedia smartphones with fast data connections due to widespread adoption of high-speed standards such as LTE. The MD8430A Signalling Tester is a key LTE base station simulator for developing LTE-compliant chipsets and wireless devices. Using its extensive experience in 3G markets, Anritsu has developed the MD8430A as a powerful LTE protocol/R&D test solution to help developers bring LTE wireless devices to market as fast as possible.
Early support for 3GPP LTE (FDD/TDD) Release 8 and Release 9 (MBMS,Positioning RS, Transmission Mode 8: Dual Layer Beamforming)
One MD8430A support 2×2 MIMO Intra-RAT handover and4×2 MIMO
Support UE category 1/2/3/4 with 150 Mbps DL and 50 Mbps UL speeds
Inter-RAT tests making effective use of previous MD8480C(UTRAN/GERAN), and MD8470A (TD-SCDMA/CDMA2000) hardwareinvestments
Full development and analysis toolset cuts L1, L2, and L3scenario development time and costs
Optimized investment from first R&D to protocolconformance testing
