  • SmartStudio GUI supports easy setup of test environments and functional tests
  • LTE data throughput up to 150 Mbps (downlink) and 50 Mbps (uplink)
  • Support for both HSPA Evolution/21 MB/s (Rel. 7) and HSPA Evolution 42 MB/s (Rel. 8 – DC-HSDPA)
  • Supports 2-cell test environment, including Inter-RAT Handover, Reselection, Redirection, CS-Fallback, etc.
  • Built-in Windows 7 PC with control and application server functionality reduces benchtop footprint
  • Automated Mobile Terminal Verification Testing with Test Sequences

The MD8475A Signalling Tester is an all-in-one base station simulator supporting LTE FDD/TDD, W-CDMA/HSPA/HSPA Evolution/DC-HSDPA, GSM/(E)GPRS, CDMA2000® 1X/1xEV-DO Rev. A and TD-SCDMA/TD-HSPA. It supports service, VoLTE and call-processing tests for multimode LTE smartphones and mobiles with excellent cost-performance.


A full line of test environments are supported for the general mobile verification phase, such as max. throughput performance tests, stress tests, and battery consumption tests of multisystem LTE mobiles using 2x2 MIMO, as well as CS-Fallback, call connection reliability and stability tests at handover, communication tests at low RF power, and service verification using LTE Multiple PDN and SMS in a 2-cell environment*.
In addition, test conditions are easily set using the SmartStudio GUI, helping cut test environment configuration time.

*: Requires two MD8475A units for testing LTE/CDMA2000/1xEV-DO.
