RICHARDSON, Texas -- Anritsu, a global leader in wireless telecommunications test equipment, announces that it is the market’s leading supplier of the first industry approved protocol conformance test cases for mobile devices capable of receiving evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Services (eMBMS) broadcasts. Anritsu submitted eMBMS test cases to the Global Certification Forum (GCF) ahead of the CAG#39 meeting in Helsinki, Finland, July 8-9 2014, following an increase in network operator priority to bring this new technology to consumer markets this year. Anritsu’s ME7834L Protocol Conformance Test (PCT) system now provides validated test cases across bands for the U.S. market, including unique coverage in LTE Band 13.

The eMBMS technology, sometimes referred to as LTE Multicast, allows content to be delivered to multiple users simultaneously through a common cellular connection. This provides significant network efficiencies over a unicast transmission where each user has his or her own connection. The U.S. and Korea are leading the way with eMBMS deployments, while cellular network operators in Europe and Australia are following the trend with the commencement of live trials. The technology is expected to deliver content such as mobile TV and radio, as well as emergency alerts.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
