Anritsu Corporation has released four new software packages for evaluating LTE-Advanced UE supporting downlink (DL) 4x4 MIMO and Downlink Carrier Aggregation (DL CA) 5 CCs. The new releases ride on the trend among network operators worldwide to deploy faster LTE-Advanced technology, as a response to the rise in content-rich services, such as mobile video on demand.

The deployment of faster LTE-Advanced technology is made possible by using key technologies such as CA (Carrier Aggregation), which aggregates several component carriers into one, and MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output), which uses multiple antennas for communications.


With the launch in 2015 of the DL CA 4CCs (four carrier component) measurement software for the all-in-one MT8821C, Anritsu became the first test and measurement company to support the valuation of LTE-Advanced DL 4CCs 2x2 MIMO UE category. The latest software release strengthens the functions of the MT8821C by adding the world's first support for testing both LTE 4x4 MIMO DL UE now being released and LTE-Advanced DL CA 5CCs UE to be released in the near future.

As well as expanding the MT8821C measurement functions, the software packages also strengthen the easy-to-use GUI with enhanced parameter search features, a Throughput graph display function and a full range of selectable audio codecs for VoLTE (voice over LTE) Echoback along with a Video Echoback function.
