|Signalion pushes LTE development with Ready-to-use test equipment|
3GPP-LTE (Long Term Evolution) was the major topic of this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Key players such as Ericsson, Nokia Siemens Networks, or Alcatel-Lucent focused on the successor of the current UMTS technology which is expected to be ready for commercial rollout in 2010.
Signalion, as a member of the LTE/SAE Trial Initiative (LSTI), has taken another step beyond 3G by presenting cutting-edge LTE test technology. The company introduced its SORBAS LTE Test-UE platform at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in a joint over-the-air LTE -demonstration together with Alcatel-Lucent showing HD-Video transmission using advanced MIMO-concepts. The SORBAS LTE Test-UE platform is the basis for LTE infrastructure testing solutions offered by Signalion and its partners.
Joint demonstrations and presentations by Rohde & Schwarz and Signalion vividly demonstrated the conformance of the SORBAS LTE Test-UE platform with the current status of the LTE standard. Furthermore Signalion exhibited full air-interface diagnostics solutions in cooperation with Tektronix and Catapult. These unique solutions combine comprehensive physical layer testing with well established protocol test equipment to enable down-to-the-single-bit testing and cross optimization of all layers of LTE infrastructure.
After the exhibition, Signalion's CEO Dr Tim Hentschel expressed himself very satisfied with the show and as: "very pleased after highly stimulating conversations with clients and partners."
