Anritsu eCall Test Solution Wins Independent Certification as a PSAP Simulator
eCall Tester MX703330E software offers manufacturers a solution for achieving equipment type approval
Luton, UK – March 13, 2018 – Anritsu Corporation has announced that the eCall Tester MX703330E software has won independent certification as a PSAP (Public Safety Answering Point) Simulator by NavCert, an EU-government-approved test body. By winning certification from the NavCert, customers can have full confidence in the Anritsu eCall test solution for achieving equipment type approval.
By winning NavCert certification, Anritsu’s eCall test solution, which comprises a combination of the Signalling Tester MD8475A/B and the MX703330E software, can support eCall type-approval measurements and tests in compliance with Commission Delegated Regulation 2017/79 as well as CEN EN16454: 2015 conformance tests.
eCall is a pan-European emergency-call system for sending information about road accidents to a PSAP. The mandatory fitting of 112-based eCall in-vehicle systems (IVS) on all new M1- and N1-category vehicles starts from 31 March 2018. Regulation 2017/79, specifying detailed technical requirements and test procedures for the type approval, requires using a PSAP simulator under the control of the technical service, compliant with the applicable EN standards and certified in accordance with EN 16454.
The eCall Tester MX703330E software emulates the communications sequence between the eCall IVS and PSAP. The Signalling Tester MD8475A/B functions as a base station for configuring the virtual GSM/WCDMA network used by eCall. The addition of the SmartStudio Manager MX847503A software will automate the settings and test procedures for MSD (Minimum Set of Data) communications tests and voice-call connections required by EN16454 and other approval tests, helping eliminate operator error and increasing eCall evaluation test efficiency.
The MX703330E software also supports the ERA-GLONASS emergency service system deployment in Russia.
