W-CDMA (UMTS) Protocol Test System (PTS)

This product has been discontinued
  • W-CDMA L3 and L2 protocol test capability
  • 3GPP Standard compliant development tool
  • Environment supporting TTCN test case execution
  • TTCN test library available (option)
  • Utilizes MD8480C W-CDMA Signaling Testers

The MX785201A W-CDMA/UMTS Protocol Test System (PTS) software, when used with an MD8480C and linked to a prototype or actual 3GPP wireless device, enables Layer 2 and Layer 3 Test Procedures to be run for verification and subsequent validation of W-CDMA/UMTS wireless device signaling protocol stacks using TTCN. It provides a framework for controlling and executing test procedures on the Anritsu MD8480C W-CDMA Signaling Tester (Base Station simulator).

The PTS system consists of software components that run on a PC. It executes TestStand™ test sequences made up of calls into a library of TTCN test cases through which can be defined:

  • Sequences of Layer 3 messages and expected responses
  • Layer 3 to Layer 2 service primitives to trigger specific Layer 2 procedures, or to configure Layer 2 operation
  • Layer 3 to Layer 1 service primitives to configure and initiate Layer 1 operation
  • Service primitives to and from user-provided code

The PTS supports multiple 3G cells enabling Soft and Hard Handover tests to be carried out. In addition, inter-system Handover tests from GERAN to UTRAN, and vice versa are supplied.

  • Wireless device testing for W-CDMA, GSM/GPRS/E-GPRS
  • Wireless device application testing including HSPA/HSPA Evolution compliance
  • Interoperability testing for wireless devices and networks
  • Research and development of W-CDMA chipsets
