ATHENS, Greece, November 5, 2010 - Following a successful sampling and positive customer
response, ANTCOR, a 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

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

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

"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.
