Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, today announced that 7Layers, an international group of independent test and engineering centres, has selected Anite's LTE device test solution for conformance and mobile operator acceptance testing in Suwon, South Korea.

7Layers has been using Anite's 2G, 3G and LTE device testing solutions at a range of its global facilities for over ten years.

"We are experiencing significant growth in the South Korean mobile testing market and a surge in demand for LTE conformance and operator acceptance testing, from both core technology suppliers and end-product manufacturers," explains TK Bae, CEO at 7Layers Korea. "By adding Anite's LTE device test solution to our current range of LTE test-equipment, we are enabling our customers to have their mobile devices tested in a straightforward and smooth process. The Anite 9000 will be integrated into our InterLab test management system in May to further enhance the test process."
