Mobile Test Platform Targets LTE and LTE-A Base Stations
Aeroflex has launched the TM500 Multi-UE LTE-A Test Mobile, which supports carrier aggregation across multiple mobile terminals or user equipment (UE). Carrier aggregation, a key component of LTE-A, allows multiple carriers comprised of either contiguous or non-contiguous spectrum to be added together, allowing wider channel bandwidths -- and higher data rates -- to be achieved.
The TM500 Test Mobile platform is the industry standard for testing LTE and LTE-A base stations or eNodeBs. Aeroflex is working with mobile operators and leading network infrastructure vendors to enable them to develop and begin to roll out the high bandwidth services promised by LTE-A in both FDD and TDD modes for operation.

LTE-A has provision for up to five component carriers (CC) of up to 20MHz bandwidth to be combined, with the aim of raising the peak data rate to 1 Gbps and beyond. 3GPP Release 10 specifies 11 TDD bands, along with a range of scenarios for aggregating specific pairs of these bands in both contiguous and non-contiguous combinations. This technique combines the capacity of different frequency bands while maximising the benefits of the superior propagation capability in the lower frequency band.
