eCall MX703330E with MD8475B

Anritsu Corporation announces that its eCall Tester MX703330E has won independent certification as a PSAP simulator by NavCert, an EU-government-approved test body.

By winning NavCert certification, Anritsu’s eCall test solution combining the MX703330E and its popular Signalling Tester MD8475A/B can support type-approval tests in compliance with Commission Delegated Regulation 2017/79 as well as EN16454 conformance tests.

[Background to Certification]

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.
By winning certification from the EU-approved NavCert, customers can have full confidence in this Anritsu eCall test solution for winning equipment type approval.

[Product Outline]

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.
Combining the MX703330E with the MD8475A/B supports testing in compliance with the CEN EN16454: 2015 standard and eCall type-approval measurements and tests.
Additionally, adding the SmartStudio Manager MX847503A software automates the settings and test procedures for MSD communications tests and voice-call connections required by EN16454 and other approval tests, helping eliminate operator error and increasing eCall evaluation test efficiency.
Moreover, the MX703330E software also supports the ERA-GLONASS emergency service system deployment in Russia.
