Anritsu releases functional test solution of IVS (In Vehicle System) for Russian emergency call system collaborating with Svyaz-sertificat and BI.Zone



Luton, United Kingdom - December 21, 2020 – Anritsu has released the test solution used by the leading Eurasian Economic Union's certification center of telematics, telecoms and vehicles, Svyaz-sertificat, compliant with GOST 33467-2015 specifications.

Anritsu Corporation (CEO Hirokazu Hamada) has collaborated with Svyaz-sertificat, a leading Russian certification body within Eurasian Economic Union, and software development company BI.Zone, to release the Automated Functional Test Tool (AFTT), a suite of certification test software for use with Anritsu's MD8475A/B signaling tester.

Since January 2017, all new vehicles sold in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) have been required to be equipped with the ERA-GLONASS emergency call system which passed the GOST  certification test.

Svyaz-sertificat and BI.Zone have developed the Automated Functional Test Tool (AFTT), certification test software for use with the MD8475A/B and have already used it for GOST 33467 certification tests at Svyaz-sertificat. Until now, the test system has been available only at Svyaz-sertificat’s facility in Russia, requiring customers wanting to sell vehicles to the Eurasian Economic Union to perform the test at their site.

With the MD8475A/B and AFTT sold through Anritsu EMEA Ltd., functional testing in conformity to GOST 33467 can now be performed in customers’ own labs. This enables in-house conformity assessment in parallel with product development, reducing the risk of failing certification tests in Russia and reducing the cost of rework such as adjustments or re-inspections.

Product Outline
The MD8475B is an all-in-one base station simulator. With its easy-to-use GUI-based SmartStudio software and test sequences prepared for automatic GUI control, it is widely used for 2G/3G/4G cell mobility tests, and normal or abnormal simulations. In addition, it is possible to construct a simulated mobile network in which European eCall, NG-eCall, and Russian ERA-GLONASS are operated. These functions facilitate comprehensive testing of Telematics Control Units (TCUs) and data communication modules, helping reduce the costs and time to develop new products.
