Anritsu announces it has worked with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, to successfully demonstrate peak download speeds of 2 Gbps. The demonstration uses a mobile test device, powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X24 LTE modem and a network simulator using 5x carrier aggregation (5CC) with 4×4 MIMO, and 256-QAM modulation on all 5 carriers. Using the mobile test device and the Anritsu MT8821C LTE Simulator, Anritsu is able to successfully demonstrate stable physical layer download speeds of 2 Gbps. The solution will be demonstrated in Anritsu’s booth (Hall 6, Stand F40) at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
Utilizing newly introduced capability enables a multi-box configuration of MT8821C to simulate three contiguous LTE baseband cells on a single RF carrier. With 3 MT8821C simulators in a “master/slave” combination we can offer more aggregated carriers with higher-order MIMO than other solutions on the market. Cells can be placed in any licensed or unlicensed band using the RF capability to cover 350 MHz to 6 GHz.
The MT8821C is a scalable LTE network simulator, product for RF parametric testing and verification of 2G/3G/4G smartphones, tablets, M2M modules and IoT devices. It supports the latest 3GPP technologies including VoLTE, Gigabit LTE, and Cellular IoT applications.
