Anritsu Platform Becomes First Test System Validated for LAA Technology

The Anritsu Company announces support of LTE-A Pro Licensed Assisted Access (LAA) technology to satisfy the Carrier Acceptance Test (CAT) requirements of a major North American carrier. The LAA tests, which run on Anritsu's ME7834LA Mobile Device Test Platform, positions Anritsu as the first test equipment manufacturer to provide validated LAA tests in a CAT environment to a large North American operator.

 

Anritsu's LAA offering in the ME7834LA builds on first-to-market capability of the Signaling Tester MD8430A, which is a central component of the ME7834LA. LAA is a 3GPP LTE Release 13 feature and is instrumental in allowing carriers to augment the licensed bands with the unlicensed spectrum (5 GHz - Band 46) and achieve data rates of gigabits per second speeds. The ME7834LA can support these high data rates in a single platform using high order of carrier aggregation, modulation, and MIMO configurations.
