COMPRION SIMfony LTE enhancing list of supported network simulators with Anritsu MD8475A

The market leading platform for combined handset testing COMPRION SIMfony now supports Anritsu LTE network simulators.


February 24, 2012 - The market leading platform for combined handset testing COMPRION SIMfony now supports Anritsu LTE network simulators. It is dedicated to work as a conformance test platform at GCF and PTCRB and listed as TP 126.


The existing cooperation between both companies for combined (U)SIM/(U)SAT handset testing already covers the related GSM/W-CDMA 3GPP Test Specifications (51.010-1/SIM, 51.010-4/SAT, 31.121/USIM , 31.124/USAT), using the MD8470A. The success of this test platform in the past three years encouraged both companies to take the same step now for LTE with the MD8475A signalling tester which supports LTE, GSM and W-CDMA radio access technologies.


COMPRION SIMfony LTE is a GCF/PTCRB validated system for comprehensive 3GPP handset testing and supports the Verizon Wireless LTE Device-UICC USIM/ISIM Interaction Test Plan. Based on the established IT³ Platform, it provides the combined card interface tests required for LTE handset certification. “We are happy to increase the popularity of our solution for combined handset testing with the Anritsu MD8475A.” says COMPRION’s Managing Director Michael Wehmeier. “This Anritsu signalling tester offers our customers a cost effective way to test the UICC interface without blocking the valuable time of their dedicated protocol conformance test systems.”


“We are delighted that COMPRION has chosen the Anritsu MD8475A signalling tester for its market leading SIMfony LTE solution.” says Anritsu’s Head of New Technology T&M Business Development Kenji Ohashi. “LTE device makers now have access to the most reliable and cost effective solution for testing the UICC interface.”


The COMPRION SIMfony LTE system works seamlessly with the Anritsu MD8475A signalling tester. All procedures and tests are integrated and controlled using the COMPRION IT³ GUI. With its integrated test system synchronisation and efficient error debugging capabilities, COMPRION SIMfony is the perfect companion for everyone searching for a fast, reliable and easy to use mobile handset conformance test system.
