Aeroflex press release
Aeroflex today announced a new TM500 TDLTE test mobile designed to support Time Division Duplex for 3G LTE (TD-LTE). Complementing Aeroflex’s highly successful TM500 LTE-FDD for 3G LTE Frequency
Division Duplex, the TM500 TD-LTE test mobile is designed to enable infrastructure equipment vendors match the demanding timescales for TD-LTE trials in China.
The new TM500 TD-LTE’s extensive Layer 1, Layer 2 and higher-layer test features make it an indispensable testing peer that provides complete visibility even into the lowest layers of the radio modem by generating the detailed diagnostic data needed for engineers to verify the required functionality and optimize network operation and performance. With support for MIMO, handover testing, 20MHz channel bandwidths and 150Mbit/s downlink data rates, it will enable comprehensive development and test support of base station and network infrastructure for the next generation of Chinese mobile technology. The TM500 TD-LTE can co-exist in the same unit as the TM500 LTE-FDD protecting investment and maximizing test flexibility for engineers working on both standards.
