Anite, a global leader in testing technology for the wireless industry, today launches its “SAS-Lite” network simulation solution. Designed to expand the range of real-world testing options and support rapid product development, “SAS-Lite” offers all the high-end features of Anite’s market leading interoperability tool “SAS”, whilst creating a flexible upgrade path as customers’ testing needs grow
Mobile network operators, terminal and component manufacturers can now debug or prove mobile devices in a simple and easy-to-use environment that offers real-world derived scenarios, applications, benchmarking and performance testing, as well as in-depth signalling analysis. Unique to Anite is the ability to create operator based test scenarios or import data taken from network measurement tools, such as “Nemo Outdoor™”.
“SAS-Lite” is designed to save time and money demanded by live network trials by building testing scenarios and scripts in a controlled and repeatable laboratory environment that reduce test times by 50%. Customers can save further by taking advantage of “SAS-Lite’s” ability to execute playback scripts autonomously using Anite’s comprehensive script campaign management and terminal control tools, which reduce the need for field trials further.
“SAS-Lite” is available in single- or dual-cell emulator configurations with each cell covering the 3GPP GERAN and UTRAN standards as well as HSPA+. Modular upgrades enable easy, cost-effective expansion to other technologies, such as Long Term Evolution (LTE).
“In today’s tough economic climate, our customers are keen to deliver the maximum return on their investments without compromising quality or time to market,” said Paul Beaver, 3GPP Director, Anite. “SAS-Lite” helps our customers to achieve their goals by giving them access to the high-end application features of our premium “SAS” product in a choice of two simple packages. The boom in applications and performance testing, driven by the success of smartphones and mobile broadband, makes “SAS-Lite” the ideal choice for fast, cost-effective product tests.”
