ANTCOR launches LteSystem: New LTE simulation platform brings functionality and robustness
Athens, Greece, November 5, 2010: Following a successful sampling and positive customer response, ANTCOR, member of the mi-cluster, leader in the development of advanced software solutions for wireless technologies, announces the addition of the LteSystem to its LteSuite product line; a major advancement towards the implementation of its strategy to expand the LteSuite simulation platform for the 3GPP Long Term Evolution protocol. The new simulation engine enhances the physical layer functionality with a lower MAC-layer implementation, suitable for simulating processes such as multi-user scheduling and link-adaptation.
“The ultimate challenge in LTE roll-outs is the quality-of-experience offered to end-users. From our experience, the source of challenges faced at higher communication layers usually originates as low as the wireless medium. LteSystem promises to fill the gap between channel-aware and QoS-aware scheduling” says Dr. Ioannis Sarris, Project Manager.
LteSuite comprises of tools for wireless channel modeling, Layer-1 transmission/reception and Layer-2 procedures that can be used as part of the design and verification workflow of PHY/MAC subsystems.
Lazaros Kapsias, CTO of ANTCOR stated “Simulation tools like LteSystem bring an evolutionary approach in LTE consultancy by following a bottom up approach useful in both system development and network-planning procedures. LTESystem evolution path assures a well-defined roadmap towards a complete Layer-1,Layer-2 chain simulation in a multi-user, multi-cell scenario.”
Current release of LteSystem supports channel-aware scheduling for maximizing the performance of the scheduling process. Next release will support a full L2 implementation which enables cross-layer QoS-aware scheduling.
“With its unprecedented flexibility and robustness, our latest simulation product release is opening up new opportunities for chip manufacturers and IP providers that are striving to accelerate product development lifecycle and minimize time to market. Our roadmap for supporting LTE Advanced and new protocol enhancements through our simulation platform delineates a future-proof solution.” says Costas Meimetis, CEO of ANTCOR.
