MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Catapult Communications Corporation (NASDAQ: CATT) today announced it has expanded its portfolio of software for testing telecommunications networks based on the W-CDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access) standard for third-generation (3G) wireless technology. The new software, which runs on the Catapult DCT2000(TM) Digital Communications Test System, enables telecom developers to test 3G networks implementing a wide range of 3GPP Release 4 and Release 99 specifications for high-speed data and voice transmission over fixed and mobile wireless networks. According to Dave Mayfield, President and COO, "Catapult has been developing test tools for W-CDMA-based networks since the 3rd Generation Partnership Project standards body published their first set of specifications in December 1999. Today, the 3GPP organization issues W-CDMA specification revisions about every three months, and the DCT2000 is unmatched in its fast support of those revisions with test tools that enable telecom equipment manufacturers to assure the functionality, interoperability and performance of their 3G telecom products and services."
