Conformance Test Solution for next wave of wireless terminals Anritsu’s HSPA Evolution Release 7 Protocol Conformance Test System selected for use by CETECOM
The next wave of wireless terminals, that support advanced high speed data and IP services provided by 3GPP, are driving the need for the latest test solutions to validate and certify these functions.
The next wave of wireless terminals, that support advanced high speed data and IP services provided by 3GPP, are driving the need for the latest test solutions to validate and certify these functions. CETECOM has been one of the first to anticipate the growing need for conformance testing of these new 3GPP Release features, often referred to as HSPA Evolution. CETECOM have selected Anritsu’s Release 7 capability to enhance its state of the art accredited test facilities.
CETECOM has invested with Anritsu to provide the new industry-leading ME7832A Protocol Conformance Test System which supplies the largest number of GCF/PTCRB Approved Test Cases. Coupled with the unique Parallel Test Controller to reduce test times by greater than 50%, easy to use Graphical Interface and reliable hardware the ME7832A is the most efficient method to prove these new terminals.
“Since the foundation of our company it has always been our philosophy to be one of the cutting-edge service providers for the mobile communications industry. The current investment in the Anritsu test solution enables us to offer these test services related to the HSPA evolution exclusively for our customers at a very early stage”, explains CETECOM’s CTO Dr. Klaus Matkey. “Thanks to this extension of our test environment we are now already prepared for the upcoming requirements of GCF and PTCRB”, he adds.
The ME7832A is an evolution of the existing Anritsu hardware and allows users to upgrade and protect their investment not only in capital equipment, but also test cases and test knowledge.
The Industry’s Leading HSPA Evolution Test Coverage
Rapid technology advances and the global adoption of 3GPP’s W-CDMA/HSPA mobile standards are accelerating the development of new mobile wireless products. The interoperability of 3GPP standards compliant W-CDMA/HSPA mobile phones must be assured by evaluating protocol conformance using GCF/PTCRB-approved test systems. Anritsu has developed its new ME7832A Protocol Conformance Test System integrating the MD8480C W-CDMA Signalling Tester and MX785220A Protocol Conformance Toolkit to meet this requirement and eliminate troublesome setup, such as cable connections, software installation, and level correction, to maximize protocol conformance testing efficiency and shorten time to market.
The ME7832A Protocol Conformance Test System supports all the latest technologies covered in the W-CDMA/HSPA 3GPP TS34.123 specification. Delivering the latest Release 7 HSPA Evolution test cases, Anritsu continues to demonstrate its leadership position.
The Worlds Fastest Protocol Conformance Tester
The Unique Parallel Test Capability allows for the reduction in Test Times to <24 hours, which is ½ the standard test time of other platforms, together with the Graphical User Interface which supports easy to use Drag & Drop windows for Test Sequence Creation, Automation and Report Generation, while also providing export capability to CETECOM Test System Operational Studio (TOS), an internet-based instrument for database-supported project and test system administration in the field of mobile communications. The Anritsu ME7832A Protocol Conformance Test System is able to provide the Fastest, Most Reliable and Repeatable results in the industry
