Anite brings test and modelling smarts to UK’s 5GIC

The UK’s 5G Innocation Centre, the government-backed 5G research alliance based at the University of Surrey, has a new participant. Test and measurement company Anite is the latest company to join the partnership, which already counts test company Rohde & Schwarz amongst its members, as well as a clutch of operator and equipment vendors.

Anite said that its channel emulation and testing tools will help researchers simulate radio conditions and protocols for potential 5G networks. Anite was a leader in some early channel modelling work as part of the EU-backed METIS programme to evaluate potential radio network requirements.

Professor Rahim Tafazolli, Head of the 5G Innovation Centre commented, “Anite’s contribution to our 5G research programme will enable the development and testing of future technologies in a real environment and in an end to end manner..”
