Live demonstration of LTE FDD/TD-LTE Device interoperability at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona

Anite, a global leader in testing technology for the wireless industry, will demonstrate its latest LTE developments at Mobile World Congress this year. These demonstrations include LTE FDD, and TD-LTE test solutions in collaboration with the Blue Wonder Communications LTE baseband solution, which incorporates the LTE protocol stack provided by 4M Wireless (http://www.4mwireless.com/products_lte_protocol_stack.php).

The demonstration will take place at the Anite stand (1H21), as well as the 4M Wireless stand (1F57) in Hall 1 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from 15th to 18th February 2010.

This demonstration is significant, as it will showcase the world’s first FDD/TD-LTE multimode terminal platform, by running multiple live video streams, VoIP and video conferencing applications. The LTE reference terminal consists of the recently launched em¬bed¬dable LTE modem IP pro¬duct by Blue Wonder “BWC200”, integrated with the 4M Wireless PS100 LTE protocol stack. To support smooth system integration, the complete LTE reference terminal is comprehensively tested with the industry renowned Anite Development Toolset.

The Anite Development Toolset is a protocol development test solution that provides an integrated, innovative suite of tools that support all phases of wireless terminal development. For this demonstration, the Anite Development Toolset is being used with the market-leading Anite 9000 Mobile Test Accelerator to emulate an LTE network for both FDD and TD-LTE.

"Our customers are looking for test solutions that will help accelerate their testing and reduce time to market for their LTE devices”, said Paul Beaver, 3GPP Business Unit Director, Anite. “At the same time our customers need tools that ensure that the LTE user experience lives up to consumer expectations. Our work with Blue Wonder and 4M Wireless prove that Anite’s LTE solutions are at the forefront of meeting this challenge.”

Blue Wonder’s BWC200 modem IP is fully 3GPP Release 8 compliant up to category 4, and optimized for lowest power consumption and smallest chip area. “This combination of multi-mode LTE support implemented into an optimized IP design is essential to our customers who aim to address the mass market for LTE,” says Peter Meyer, Managing Director and Head of Development at Blue Wonder Communications.

An important enabler of the demonstration is the 4M Wireless protocol software consisting of the 3GPP Release 8 LTE Layer 2, Layer 3 and NAS protocol layers with Inter-RAT handover capabilities. The stack has been through comprehensive interoperability tests with leading LTE infrastructure vendors and is presently the most widely used LTE terminal protocol stack in the industry.

“4M Wireless has been at the forefront of LTE protocol stack development and we have successfully delivered our product to several customers and partners,” said Atif Malik, CEO of 4M Wireless. “We are delighted to be part of this demonstration with Blue Wonder Communications and Anite as it proves the interoperability of our offerings and our ability to provide a standards compliant product for LTE terminals.”
