Allen, TX – March 24, 2023 – Anritsu Corporation President Hirokazu Hamada has announced that the eCall Tester MX703330E software has successfully conducted the independent certification as a PSAP Simulator by NavCert, an EU-accredited test body.
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 started March 31, 2018.
The European eCall system vehicle certification specifies use of an EN16454-compliant PSAP simulator. Anritsu has gained annual certification since 2018 to offer an eCall test solution supporting high-safety IVS modules. Anritsu successfully finished the re-certification to NavCert’s accredited PPP80025 certification scheme, which confirms the usage of the MX703330E as an EN16454 conform PSAP simulator. As a result, the MX703330E can continue to be used as a PSAP simulator for European eCall vehicle certification.
Anritsu continues development of future national eCall test solutions to support car manufactures’ certification testing.
The eCall Tester MX703330E software emulates the communications sequence between the eCall IVS and PSAP. The Signalling Tester MD8475B functions as a base station for configuring the virtual mobile network used by eCall.
Combining the MX703330E and MD8475B facilitates both EN16454-compliant tests, as well as use as a European eCall vehicle certification system.
