Confident TCU Connectivity through Efficient Functional Testing

3/18/2021, original air date. Now on-demand. , 60 minutes

Consumer demand for enhanced vehicle features continues to increase as technology evolves. The testing of Telematics Control Units (TCUs) is critical to ensuring the performance of automotive cellular connectivity under differing scenarios as well as bringing quality products/services to market that meet customer expectations. These important tests can be conducted efficiently, providing confidence in test results and product performance.

This 60-minute webinar examines how to efficiently conduct the most common functional tests for an automotive TCU, using an Anritsu MT8000A 5G and/or an MD8475B 2G/3G/4G cellular network simulator.

What you will learn:

Key Topics:

  • IP Data Throughput
  • Carrier Aggregation / MIMO
  • Application tests using internet-connected test server and real application server

Who Should Attend:

Engineers, managers, and executives working in the automotive telematics industry (OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers, etc.) and others with a desire to learn about the key functional test areas for TCUs.
