First LTE RF test cases validated by CETECOM

CETECOM announces initial validation of LTE RF-Transmitter test cases on Rohde & Schwarz test platform

(PresseBox) (Essen, ) CETECOM has recently submitted the following RF test cases on a Rohde & Schwarz test platform (R&S TS8980 [TP 98]) to the Global Certification Forum (GCF) for validation:

- TC 6.2.2 UE Maximum Output Power
- TC 6.3.2 Minimum Output Power
- TC EVM equalizer spectrum flatness

These test cases were approved during the GCF-CAG#22 meeting (20-21 April 2010) held in Beijing, China in FDD-7.

This high quality level was reached due to a long validation experience and an outstanding joint effort with Rohde & Schwarz. The recent developments are a big step forward in upgrading of CETECOM's LTE services and test solutions in general.

"We are constantly improving our services and test solutions to maintain a high level of quality as we adapt to meet the markets' needs," said Dr. Harald Ansorge, CTO of CETECOM according to the recent results at the GCFCAG# 22 meeting. "With this goal in mind it is very exciting to be part of this important process."

CETECOM will also submit LTE test case validation results to PTCRB Validation Group (PVG) for agreement soon and PTCRB will review these LTE test case validations in FDD-13 from CETECOM on the next PTCRB meeting #60.
