Allen, TX – September 12, 2018 – COMPRION eUICC Profile Manager, the only software tool for efficient eUICC life cycle management, is enhanced by an additional connectivity option. The software allows over-the-air (OTA) updates of eUICCs and their profiles by means of a simulated network.
“Starting with the COMPRION eUICC Profile Manager release 1.2, the connection can now be established using the Anritsu Signalling Tester MD8475A network simulator,” announced Jens Christoph, Director of the eUICC Test Solutions Business Unit.
For over ten years, COMPRION and Anritsu have been strong technology partners combining expertise and collaboration on joint projects and products. “We have very similar customers, such as MNOs, test houses, and card manufacturers. In fact, many of our customers’ test departments are already equipped with an Anritsu MD8475A. These customers can now get more out of their network simulators by using them for the new testing challenges connected with eUICC life cycle management,” explains Christoph. “We expect that even more test engineers working with eUICC profiles can benefit from our tool.”
Once an eUICC is permanently soldered into an M2M or consumer device, it is no longer possible to access the card by physical contact. With the launch of eUICC Profile Manager in September 2016, COMPRION was the first test tool manufacturer to develop a means to manage (load, delete, enable, and disable) profiles of an eUICC over a cellular network connection by using a simulated network.
The Signalling Tester MD8475A is an all-in-one base station simulator supporting LTE, LTE-Advanced, W-CDMA/HSPA/HSPA Evolution/DC-HSDPA, GSM/EGPRS, CDMA2000 1X/1xEV-DO Rev. A. and TD-SCDMA/TD-HSPA. It supports service, VoLTE and call-processing tests for multimode LTE smartphones and mobiles with excellent cost-performance.
