Stocks in this article: NTGR

LAS VEGAS, May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Anritsu Company announces that LTE-Advanced Carrier Aggregation (CA) devices are one step closer to commercial deployment with a demonstration of 150 Mb/s data throughput at CTIA2013. The demonstration will use the new NETGEAR AirCard 780S Mobile Hotspot and Anritsu MD8430A LTE Network Simulator with RTD test sequences. Aggregation of two 2x2 MIMO carriers into one "pipe" will be shown, with data rates faster than most commercial networks currently on the air. Anritsu and NETGEAR will provide the demonstration of LTE-Advanced CA capability in Anritsu's booth (#6123) at CTIA2013.

"Anritsu is pleased to continue to provide leading-edge support for LTE-Advanced features such as Carrier Aggregation," said Michael Barrick, Sr. Business Development Manager, Anritsu Company. "We look forward to providing additional solutions in our portfolio as CA devices move into high-volume manufacturing and broad deployment."

"NETGEAR is continuing to drive the development of leading-edge wireless technologies that make connecting to the Internet simple and available to all," said Michael Clegg, General Manager & Senior Vice President, Service Provider Business at NETGEAR. "The recent addition of the AirCard product team is a real demonstration of NETGEAR's commitment to extending this leadership into the 4G LTE market. Collaboration with leading ecosystem partners like Anritsu is an important part of the work needed to bring leading-edge technology to market, and the NETGEAR team is pleased to participate in Anritsu's CTIA program."

The NETGEAR AirCard 780S Mobile Hotspot is the first in a series of products currently in development that will support LTE-Advanced CA technology. LTE-Advanced CA is an important advancement that allows wireless service providers to harness fragmented spectrum resources to provide unmatched speed and coverage benefits to LTE subscribers.

The MD8430A LTE Network Simulator can simulate up to two active and four interfering LTE base stations on up to four RF channels. A mix of Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) and Time Division Duplex (TDD) base stations can be simulated, with multiple MIMO configurations possible for each base station, including SISO, 2x2 MIMO or 4x2 MIMO. A full lineup of advanced Rel. 8, 9, and 10 features are available, including Carrier Aggregation, Dual-Layer Beamforming, Enhanced Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (eMBMS), Robust Header Compression (RoHC), Semi Persistent Scheduling (SPS), and others. The MD8430A is a building block for Anritsu's LTE Conformance and Carrier Acceptance Test (CAT) solutions, including the ME7873L LTE RF Conformance Test System and ME7834L Mobile Device Test System.
