Our Handset Testing business has led the world in wireless testing solutions for 20 years, helping chipset, mobile device and network equipment manufacturers test the viability, improve the quality and reduce the time to market of their products.
Originally focused on Conformance Testing (CT) – ensuring that devices complied with industry standards and were able to deliver the service expected of them – we now also offer solutions within Development Testing (DT) – helping our customers develop viable early-stage devices – and Interoperability Testing (IOT) – simulating real world network conditions to ensure that devices can communicate effectively with one another on different networks. Our recently acquired range of Propsim® radio channel emulators simulate the characteristics of real-world radio channel conditions within a laboratory to enable the testing and development of high quality wireless devices and network equipment.
Our technology, which has a long lifespan and is easy to use, enables manufacturers to identify and resolve problems early in the development process, and helps them reduce costs and show a clear return on investment. While a large proportion of customers buy our standard products, we offer major customers a degree of customisation and are uniquely flexible in allowing product licences to be shared across R&D sites, and our solutions to be used across departments.
Our products test the entire range of devices – from second-generation (2G) through to the latest fourth-generation (4G). New devices must be able to work on multiple generations of technology to maintain a connection; the need for new devices to contain legacy and new-generation technology makes it difficult for new entrants to the test market as they need to be able to provide a comprehensive range of test cases.

Our Network Testing business provides ‘Nemo’ branded products which enable mobile network operators and manufacturers to measure networks’ coverage and quality.
Our measurement tools are designed to meet the needs of all our customers, regardless of their internal processes and means of testing. They provide a wide range of information, from call quality, data download and upload speeds, to signal reliability, the interaction of neighbouring cells, and the efficiency with which devices "hand-off" from one cell to another as they move in a vehicle, on foot or in a building.
Products range from Nemo Handy, an easy-to-operate handheld device that can be used for indoor and outdoor testing, to Nemo Outdoor, a powerful laptop-based solution for engineers engaged in ‘drive testing’ — driving around an area to compare coverage and quality at different times and in various weather conditions. Nemo Autonomous can be installed in any vehicle to provide an automatic, cost-effective, continuous stream of data, with no need for on-going operator intervention, Nemo Invex is an evolutionary chassis-based benchmarking solution, and Nemo FSR1 is a modular high-speed digital scanner receiver that provides accurate, high speed measurements of wireless networks across multiple bands and technologies.
The software embedded in our products lets network operators and their sub-contractors manage and analyse vast quantities of data quickly and efficiently, either on Nemo Analyze or on third-party processing tools.

Anite Travel helps leisure travel companies run their businesses efficiently. As the UK’s number one in leisure travel software, we provide technology that enables them to sell an ever-increasing range of holiday products through multiple sales channels — including call centres, travel agents and the internet; to price by currency and market; to manage their inventory; to connect with other industry providers; and to improve productivity and customer service. The technology has a long lifecycle, and many customers have been using our legacy ATOP product for over 15 years.
@comRES, the only proven, large-scale reservation system on the market, can significantly reduce back-office costs by enabling the standardisation of processes across all markets and types of holiday. Scalability means it can keep pace with a business’s changing needs.
As well as offering the key functions of reservation, content and customer relationship management and operational finance as a standalone solution, @comRES also provides the core around which our @com eBusiness Suite is built. This enterprise resource planning solution — which includes supplier contracting, dynamic supplier connectivity, sales, inventory management, customer documentation, supplier notification, and accounts receivable and payable — has been created as an integrated modular system, enabling customers to combine the elements they need into a system that precisely maps onto their requirements.
