Anritsu Corporation and COMPRION GmbH Release Solution for 100% Automation of Protocol Conformance Tests

ME7834L-based Solution Fully Automates Execution of all 3GPP TS 36.523 LTE Conformance Tests for Certification and Pre-certification of Mobile Devices

Richardson, TX – October 15, 2015

Anritsu Corporation and COMPRION GmbH announce that they have developed a solution to fully automate the execution of all 3GPP TS 36.523 LTE Conformance tests required for certification and pre-certification of mobile devices.

Until now, achieving complete automation of GCF and PTCRB conformance tests was not possible, as a number of tests required specific USIM profiles. This meant that test engineers had to manually change USIMs several times to run a campaign of conformance tests. The solution formed by integration of COMPRION Test SIM Simulator with Anritsu ME7834 Protocol Conformance Test System enables the USIM to be automatically reconfigured in real time during the execution of a test campaign. The result is that no manual intervention is required, improving overall testing efficiency, enabling complete campaigns to be run overnight or over a weekend and freeing up valuable test engineering time.

This latest enhancement to Anritsu’s ME7834L system strengthens Anritsu’s position as the market leading supplier of protocol conformance test systems for LTE and LTE-Advanced mobile devices, delivering the latest technology and the highest number of test cases to chipset developers, terminal vendors and test houses worldwide.

Following this announcement, Bob Kersey, Marketing Director of Wireless Testing Solutions at Anritsu, commented, “The problem of swapping USIMs has been a major issue for mobile device certification. Anritsu is pleased to work with COMPRION to bring this unique integrated solution to the market which will save customers much effort and improve user experience.”

Nihada Poricanin, Product Manager for Terminal Test Solutions at COMPRION, adds: “The COMPRION Test SIM Simulator is based on the IT³ Prove!, a well-proven terminal tester consisting of both hardware and software. The solution replaces the physical test SIM card with a simulation. Thus, UICC profiles such as CSIM, USIM and ISIM needed for the different network access technologies can be simulated. The test operator only has to start the test campaign, everything else runs automatically across the two different systems. This saves time, makes test results repeatable and minimizes errors.”
