Artiza LTE eNB Testers (1st Generation)

3 System Models for Different Density Requirements

Artiza LTE eNB Testers are available with three different configurations to accommodate various user needs. The system is available with XD (eXtremely high Density), HD (High Density), and FD (Fair Density) model, each of which has load generation for different eNB capacity requirements. The XD is focused on load generation to achieve 840 UEs/sector capacity testing. It is the first market-proven product in the industry, and offers the best capability in the most advanced high-density load testing market from the beginning of the eNB development. The basic model, FD can support up to 64 UEs/sector and is more focused on functional testing with high cost performance. The HD is targeting standard capacity of 400 UEs/sector including some functional testing of FD capabilities. All of the resources, including hardware modules installed in the system and test data generated from Artiza LTE eNB Testers, are compatible and portable across different platforms. XD/HD/FD coverage is shown in Figure 1, and system configurations in Figure 2/3.
