Anritsu Demonstrates LTE-A Category 6 Peak Data Rates of 300 Mbps

-- Demonstration Uses Qualcomm Gobi 9x35 Modem and Anritsu MD8430A LTE Simulator --

RICHARDSON, Texas, Jan. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Anritsu Company announces it has worked with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), to successfully demonstrate peak throughput for a Category 6 LTE device and network simulator using 20+20 MHz Carrier Aggregation (CA). The two companies have jointly performed tests with a device based on the new Qualcomm® Gobi 9x35 modem, the world's first LTE Advanced World Mode Category 6 chipset solution. Both the Gobi 9x35 and Anritsu MD8430A LTE simulator support CA with two LTE FDD or TDD component carriers (CCs), each with a bandwidth of up to 20 MHz, allowing Category 6 peak data rates of 300 Mb/s in the downlink.

In order to ensure the functionality and performance of a Category 6 CA device, the LTE network simulator should be capable of testing under a range of conditions, including bidirectional downlink/uplink traffic, RF impairments, and a variety of Secondary Component Carrier (SCC) conditions. In addition, the simulator should be capable of dynamic scripted protocol-level testing and not just replication of static conditions. The MD8430A is the first LTE Simulator on the market to offer these advanced CA capabilities, such as implementation of Hybrid Automatic Repeat Request (HARQ), under high throughput conditions.

"Anritsu is pleased to work with Qualcomm Technologies in support of Category 6 CA and the latest LTE Advanced features," said Wade Hulon, General Manager and Vice President of Anritsu Company. "We understand that wireless carriers are depending on CA to meet consumer demand for ever high data rates, and are pleased to be at the forefront of this enabling technology."

"This demonstration with Anritsu to showcase LTE Advanced Category 6 peak data rates is an important validation of our latest modem technology," said Serge Willenegger, vice president of Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies. "Gobi 9x35 is our 4th generation of multimode LTE modems and is leading the mobile industry to the next phase of LTE Advanced with support for up to 40 MHz carrier aggregation on LTE FDD and TDD."

The MD8430A is a scalable LTE network simulator, with five models ranging from Functional Test Model (FTM) to Performance Test Model (PTM), and available software options for both LTE FDD and TDD for any model. The associated Rapid Test Designer (RTD) graphical test software enables quick scripting of tests, with an intuitive user interface as well as available layer 3 and lower-layer libraries. With the addition of the MD8430A-085 Carrier Aggregation option to either of the two top models, two CCs with 2x2 MIMO are available in the downlink (up to 40 MHz total), with support for Category 6 and up to 300 Mb/s downlink throughput.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
Docker containers have brought great opportunities to shorten the deployment process through continuous integration and the delivery of applications and microservices. This applies equally to enterprise data centers as well as the cloud. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Jari Kolehmainen, founder and CTO of Kontena, discussed solutions and benefits of a deeply integrated deployment pipeline using technologies such as container management platforms, Docker containers, and the drone.io Cl tool.

Any startup has to have a clear go –to-market strategy from the beginning. Similarly, any data science project has to have a go to production strategy from its first days, so it could go beyond proof-of-concept. Machine learning and artificial intelligence in production would result in hundreds of training pipelines and machine learning models that are continuously revised by teams of data scientists and seamlessly connected with web applications for tenants and users.
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.

yperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let’s say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it....
