Toolset is the first solution in the industry to support TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA Inter-
RAT test cases. Back in
December 2010
, Anite's Conformance Toolset was also
the first device testing platform to be approved by the GCF for TD-LTE testing.
Anite has an unrivalled level of industry expertise in the field of TD-LTE
conformance testing and has to date been responsible for more than 90 per
cent of all TD-LTE test case verification submissions to 3GPP RAN5. Anite's
