Epitiro Launches LTE Test Suite

Epitiro introduced a packet-domain test solution for UMTS long term evolution (LTE) device manufacturers and mobile network operators (MNO). The suite is comprised of LTELab and ISP-I TM LTE.

Epitiro said its LTELab is designed to empower LTE cell designers and MNO product assessment engineers with the ability to test an LTE cell under real network stress. Over 200 simultaneous LTE-based broadband sessions can be established as can an unlimited number of other mobile voice and data sessions (2G, 3G, 3.5G, HSDPA). LTELab's ability to generate and monitor the performance of these types of traffic in a lab environment is a distinct advantage over test gear that only simulates network conditions.

For early LTE movers entering field trials, Epitiro has added a new portfolio of LTE analysis features to ISP-I, its flagship broadband monitoring platform. Enhancements include the ability to accurately measure broadband speeds in excess of 300Mb/sec as well as modifications to reporting and database formatting.
