ALCATEL-LUCENT Purchases its LTE Load Tester from ERCOM

ERCOM confirms its leadership in LTE test and measurement systems through the purchasing by Alcatel Lucent of ERCOM's product Load eNodeB Mobipass Tester.

PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwire - Nov. 2, 2009) - Many countries and operators are now committed to deploy LTE (Long Terme Evolution) networks to develop mobile broadband and to sustain the ever growing data connectivity needs on mobile networks. Alcatel - Lucent is one of the pioneers in such technology and is dedicated to deliver LTE all around the world. To finalize its development, Alcatel-Lucent has chosen ERCOM's Load eNodeB Mobipass Tester.

The load system provided by Ercom is the continuity of its functional test platforms, known as Mobipass eNodeB Tester. ERCOM has already deployed 60 of such test platforms. Mobipass technology enables the emulation of every LTE eNodeB interfaces: end-user (UE), hand-over (X2) and core network (S1). The Mobipass architecture provides a state-of-the art and stand-alone solution for all the tests and simulations needed by a telco manufacturer to develop its LTE products.

"Thanks to Ercom long time expertise in load and capacity testing, our customer chose ERCOM's Mobipass solution to fulfill its extensive technical requirements and to meet its cost-effective development strategy", according to Didier Pagnoux, ERCOM's CEO.
