FLEET, England, December 22, 2010 - Anite today announces that the Anite Conformance Toolset is
the first and only LTE protocol conformance testing solution to be approved
by the Global Certification Forum (GCF) for the certification of LTE Band 13
& 20 devices. This has particular relevance to device manufacturers wishing
to service the growing North American and European markets. Anite is also
immediately able to support all of the TDD LTE protocol test cases required

Anite is now the only test equipment vendor to meet the
industry's stringent test coverage requirements for LTE protocol testing
across LTE bands 13 & 20 and TDD LTE bands 38 & 40.

"In order to maintain consumer expectations of next generation
LTE wireless devices it is essential that device manufacturers are able to
rigorously test prior to launching their products," said Paul Beaver, Anite's
3GPP Business Unit Director. "Anite, the global leader in testing technology
for the wireless industry is the first test equipment vendor to have both FDD
and TDD LTE test cases approved by GCF.

North American & European mobile operators have driven LTE
technology forward at breakneck speed and Anite has beaten the challenge
thrown down, leading the way as the premier solution and respected industry
experts for device manufacturers wishing to launch new LTE product."

Anite has also demonstrated clear LTE technical leadership through its
trail-blazing work on RAN5 test case verification. 86% of FDD and 100% of TDD
LTE test cases have been verified by Anite to date and close collaboration
with the leading LTE device manufacturers ensures that Anite customers can be
assured of working with the market experts.

These achievements build upon Anite's already comprehensive portfolio of
leading 3GPP protocol solutions, from GSM through EDGE and WCDMA to the
latest HSPA+ standards, enabling developers to adopt a total end-to-end test
philosophy for all of their wireless testing needs, reducing both development
time and costs.
