3CC test upgrade allows data rates up to 450Mbit/s

Aeroflex’s TM500 LTE-A Test Mobile and the E500 Capacity Test System now both support the aggregation of three component carriers (3 CC). Carrier aggregation of 3 CC allows mobile network operators to achieve data rates of up to 450 Mbit/s on their LTE-A networks. 3 CC carrier aggregation enables network operators with limited contiguous frequency allocations to maximise 4G data speeds by combining these spectrum bands.

3 CC carrier aggregation enables network operators with limited contiguous frequency allocations to maximise 4G data speeds by combining these spectrum bands. The E500 Capacity Test system is the chosen platform in use by leading network operators to prove that new network features such as 3 CC aggregation fully deliver as promised on their network, enabling them to offer the best possible user experience to their subscribers.

TM500 infrastructure customers have had the benefit of being able to develop and test LTE-A carrier aggregation for well over two years. Now for the first time they can do this with three component carriers, allowing mobile operators to accelerate the time-to-market of 3 CC services for LTE-A subscribers.

“The TM500 Test Mobile is the first commercial infrastructure test platform to release 3 CC” said Shusina Ngwa, product manager at Aeroflex. “Offering this capability at such an early stage is crucial to enable network performance to be tested and validated, ahead of the availability of end-user terminals and handsets.”

Aeroflex provides the tools for leading network infrastructure vendors and operators to roll out the high bandwidth services promised by successive releases of the 3GPP LTE-A standard.
