Anite contributes testing expertise as it joins 5GIC

Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology has joined the 5GIC, contributing channel emulation and protocol testing expertise to the development of next-generation 5G technology.

Many candidate technologies are currently being considered for future 5G standards and a common theme across these proposals is the increasingly complex interactions between wireless devices.

Wireless researchers find it essential to accurately simulate the protocol and radio conditions of potential 5G network environments in order to evaluate the technology and optimise the performance of next-generation networks and devices.

Paul Beaver, Products Director at Anite’s Device & Infrastructure business says, “We are really excited to be joining 5GIC, adding Anite’s valuable expertise to help accelerate key research initiatives. 5G has the potential to transform wireless communications but it will be essential to ensure that key technology attributes are appropriately designed and tested, and this is where Anite can play an important role.”

Professor Rahim Tafazolli, Head of the 5G Innovation Centre commented, “Anite’s contribution to our 5G research programme will enable the development and testing of future technologies in a real environment and in an end to end manner. Through 5GIC’s collaboration with leading industry partners our 5G testbed will inform a new communications network that will revolutionise the way technologies are developed in the future.”
