PCTEST, Anritsu to offer PTCRB-verified LTE data throughput testing

PCTEST has acquired LTE data throughput test capability for the Anritsu ME7834L Mobile Device Test Platform (MDTP), the company said.

RFT 113 data throughput tests installed on the ME7834L include both static and dynamic fading configurations across multiple LTE bands, with more than 60 percent of the test cases verified by PTCRB. Initial static tests were approved for release in September 2015, as the dynamic fading tests in RFT 113 are forecast to accelerate in early 2016 with their expected addition to the PTCRB certification requirements.

The ME7834L MDTP is a scalable GCF, PTCRB, and carrier-validated test system that enables certification of LTE devices to industry and carrier standards. It provides test coverage for 3GPP 36.523 and 37.901, as well as a wide portfolio of CAT test plans, including leading eMBMS coverage for a large North American operator.

PCTEST Lab is an independent test laboratory offering one-stop conformance, performance, and regulatory testing of wireless devices in accordance with industry and 3GPP/3GPP2 technical requirements, including RF, Protocol, RRM, Carrier Aggregation (CA) and carrier-specific test plans.

Anritsu is the United States subsidiary of Anritsu Corporation, a global provider of innovative communications test and measurement solutions for 120 years.
