Anritsu's Test Solution used to Evaluate Qualcomm's 2 Gbps LTE Modem

Anritsu along with Qualcomm has successfully demonstrated peak download speeds of 2 Gbps. The demonstration used a mobile test device, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon X24 LTE modem and a network simulator using 5x carrier aggregation (5CC) with 4x4 MIMO, and 256-QAM modulation on all 5 carriers. Using the mobile test device and the Anritsu MT8821C LTE Simulator, Anritsu was able to successfully demonstrate stable physical layer download speeds of 2 Gbps. The solution will be demonstrated at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona, Spain.

Utilizing newly introduced capability enables a multi-box configuration of MT8821C to simulate 3 contiguous LTE baseband cells on a single RF carrier. With 3 MT8821C simulators in a "master/slave" combination, Anritsu can offer more aggregated carriers with higher-order MIMO than other solutions on the market. Cells can be placed in any licensed or unlicensed band using the RF capability to cover 350 MHz to 6 GHz.

The MT8821C is a scalable LTE network simulator product for RF parametric testing and verification of 2G/3G/4G smartphones, tablets, M2M modules and IoT devices. It supports the latest 3GPP technologies, including VoLTE, Gigabit LTE, and Cellular IoT applications.
