Rohde & Schwarz, a premium supplier of test and
measurement solutions to the wireless industry, and Blue Wonder, an independent
design house and licensor of LTE IP and system solutions, today announced a
joint demonstration at 4G World 2010 in Chicago, Illinois, from October 18
through October 21 at Rohde & Schwarz booth (Booth 627).
Blue Wonder Communications and Rohde & Schwarz
have teamed up to demonstrate one of the latest market trends showing their
TD-LTE capabilities. The demonstration utilizes Blue Wonder Communication's
BWC200 LTE IP reference solution and Rohde & Schwarz R&S®CMW500
Wideband Radio Communication Tester. The R&S®CMW500, a multi-standard
platform, is supporting the latest development in 3GPP and 3GPP2 standards and
is the most comprehensive test solution in the market for chipset and handset
development, and for emerging technologies like LTE and HSPA+, EDGE evolution
Blue Wonder Communication's BWC200 is capable of
handling FDD and TD-LTE on the same architecture and is therefore the ideal IP
solution for customers to deploy multi-mode LTE devices worldwide. The BWC200
reference platform utilizes the proven protocol stack from 4M Wireless for the
4G World demonstration. The 4M Wireless LTE protocol stack is deployed in
several commercially available LTE UE solutions and has undergone significant
IOT to date.
The demonstration is the result of joint testing
activities for TD-LTE. A connection is established between the R&S®CMW500,
acting as TD-LTE base station emulator, and the BWC200, realizing a 2x2 MIMO
setup. The connection is verified by streaming a high-definition video in downlink
and uplink, which is visualized on two external notebooks.
"Partnering with Rohde & Schwarz on TD-LTE
testing gives confidence to our customers to have a fully verified and tested
solution available for going to market quickly", comments Dr. Wolfram Drescher,
Managing Director at Blue Wonder Communications. "Discovering the performance
of BWC200 LTE-IP at the 4G World in Chicago is a good opportunity to get an
impression of what the coming advanced multimode LTE solutions are able to
"This joint demonstration is another example of the
broad application range of the R&S®CMW500 used as LTE Protocol Tester
supporting, not only the latest changes and developments in LTE FDD, but
moreover also for TD-LTE!" says Anton Messmer, director of subdivision for
mobile radio testers at Rohde & Schwarz.
"We are pleased to be demonstrating and further
testing our solution with the Rohde & Schwarz R&S®CMW500," added Atif
Malik, CEO of 4M Wireless. "The 4M Wireless LTE protocol stack is fully
integrated with the reference baseband solution from Blue Wonder Communications
and this event further proves the TD-LTE capabilities of all involved."
