Long Term Evolution (LTE) has firmly established itself as the answer to today’s insatiable demand for mobile data. With over 132 operators migrating to LTE over the next two years, this technology represents the biggest capital expenditure (CAPEX) from the perspective of service providers and the biggest source of revenue for equipment vendors.
To achieve a truly mobile broadband experience and to reap the full benefits of LTE from a technical and operational perspective, it is crucial that LTE equipment needs to meet the data rates and latency requirements supported by the technology. In addition, the equipment needs to be validated for operation in conjunction with legacy networks.
For the first time in the world, a future technology standard has spanned the U.S., Asia and Europe with commitments from leading operators on their planned deployment of LTE and a global consensus that LTE will become the dominant technology for the next generation of mobile broadband.
We offer comprehensive set of offerings in the LTE domain which are well aligned to address the engineering requirements of LTE equipment manufacturers and also provide service to operators for successful deployment and rollout of their LTE networks.
We offer end-to-end product engineering services to TEMs across the product life cycle from design and development to testing and integration. We also offer network integration and device testing services to service providers.
With an early focus and investment in 4G technology, we have successfully developed a highly competent Center of Excellence (CoE) around LTE. The CoE focuses on keeping the team abreast with the technology advancements and also focuses on developing reference software solutions and simulators that act as value multipliers in accelerating product development and network roll out.
Validation of Evolved Packet Core (EPC) network deployment for Tier 1 US operator
We successfully validated the trial network deployment of EPC of a Tier 1 US operator while ensuring interoperability between the multivendor EPC network elements using advanced eNodeB simulator. We were also responsible for validating the functional and performance compliance of the different network elements.
eNodeB(eNB) platform development and test for Tier 1 US TEM
We enabled the development of macro eNodeB platform software for a Tier 1 US TEM. We supported the integration of Remote Radio Heads (RRH), multiple frequency bands and managed interactions with underlying hardware for configuration, operation and maintenance activities. The team was also involved in the integration test of platform, call processing and OAM software components developed across multiple locations. The complete automation of the OAM test suite reduced the regression test efforts by more than 70 percent.
Device certification in preparation of LTE service roll-out for Tier 2 operator
We successfully enabled an operator in certifying devices prior to rollout of their LTE network. The work involved creation of test plan, test strategy and certification process for multi-mode devices. Selection of test equipments, lab setup plan for model network and device certification lab along with identification of optimized drive route for field testing were supported by the our team of experts.
