DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/pbj4m7/signals_ahead) has announced the addition of the "Signals Ahead: Chips and Salsa XVIII - The Cat 4 is out of the bag" report to their offering.
This tenth benchmark study done with Spirent Communications provides results from LTE FDD Category 4 chipset testing. Participating chipset manufacturers include Ericsson, HiSilicon Intel, MediaTek, Qualcomm and Samsung.
- Six LTE chipsets from Ericsson (pre-commercial), HiSilicon (commercial), Intel (commercial), MediaTek (pre-commercial), Qualcomm (commercial) and Samsung (pre-commercial) have been benchmarked
- Each chipset has been tested against 29 test scenarios involving five ITU channel models, two transmission modes, and three MIMO correlation factors
- Results are based primarily on achievable throughput, although we also analyzed the distributions of reported CQI values, ACK/NACK/DTX percentages for both codewords and MIMO utilization rates
- The Samsung pre-commercial chipset was the top-performing chipset and it distinguished itself from its peers, in particular with some of the more challenging test scenarios.
