Aeroflex announces full bi-directional Cat 6 LTE-A mobile handset test capability

7100 Digital Radio Test Set provides TDD and FDD LTE-A carrier aggregation for simultaneous uplink and downlink test at Cat 6 data rates

Aeroflex Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., has announced that the 7100 Digital Radio Test Set provides LTE-A carrier aggregation testing at full Cat 6 data rates of 300 Mbps downlink and 50 Mbps uplink simultaneously for  LTE-A in FDD mode, and now also supports carrier aggregation in TDD mode.

“The 7100 is already established as the handset tester of choice for the majority of Tier 1 LTE mobile chipset vendors,” said Phil Medd, Senior Technical Product Manager of Aeroflex. “The ability to test Cat 6 performance bi-directionally will make it an even more indispensible tool for both R&D and service testing of LTE-A handsets and chipsets.”

The Cat 6 capability is available via an upgrade to the standard 7100 software and the use of a RF combiner, allowing users to maximize the potential of their existing test equipment investment.

The LTE-A capability of the 7100 facilitates testing to 3GPP Release 10 specifications on two non-contiguous component carriers, with both FDD and TDD modes supported, and with 2x2 downlink MIMO or SISO for each component carrier. All Release 10 RF band combinations are supported, including the downlink-only Band 29.
