Azimuth Systems (News - Alert), Inc recently released an enhanced version of its popular Azimuth Field-to-Lab offering. The latest release, version 2.4, not only provides composite test cases but also offers additional compatibility with latest scanners and file formats like TD-SCDMA with QXDM and JDSU, UMTS with Anite (News - Alert) Nemo. The enhanced release also provides mapping improvements, augmented built-in mapper intelligence and native support for LTE with XCAL.

Azimuth's prize-winning ACE MX/MX2 MIMO Channel Emulators can replay the dynamic channel conditions gathered during drive testing, Service providers and equipment manufacturers can therefore simulate actual world test situations in the lab in an efficient manner using the prize-winning Azimuth FTS (News - Alert) offering. Actual-world channel situations can be reproduced in a convenient and repeatable manner with ACE MX or ACE MX2. The FTS offering provides a connection between laboratory and field-measured test results, thereby enhancing product quality and user satisfaction and accelerating the vendors' time-to-market. The FTS offering also eliminates the expensive and lengthy multiple rounds of drive testing.

In a statement, Ajay Patel, executive director of Product Management at Azimuth Systems said, "Azimuth's continuous focus on superior ease-of-use has led the company to further develop its complete end-to-end automation plan and add increased functionalities to the popular Field-to-Lab solution. With the latest release of Field-to-Lab, version 2.4, Azimuth has made a number of enhancements to better meet the needs of the wireless test market -- from GUI improvements to providing support for the latest industry standards -- in order to keep up with the growing complexity of testing 4G and LTE (News - Alert) products. For example, Azimuth's UE automation capability for mobile devices enables comprehensive heterogeneous test beds to be created, making Field-to-Lab testing an even more compelling option."

TD-SCDMA playback with QXDM will be supported for the first time by Field-to-Lab version 2.4. The solution’s current compatibility with FDD LTE and TD-LTE is now balanced with support for improved multi-frequency playback with QXDM.

Drive logs can also be analyzed with the in-built intelligence incorporated in the latest version of FTS solution. The latest release not only offers important statistics like the average gap size, but also provides reporting capability regarding the impact on playback while altering the parameters.
