The MD8480C W-CDMA Signalling Tester has been specifically designed for developing and testing 3GPP wireless devices including protocol stacks, chipsets, and application software. Supporting W-CDMA, HSPA, HSPA Evolution, GSM, GPRS and EGPRS services in a single unit, it is the industry's first HSPA signaling tester and the only one with full HSPA capability including 42 Mbps DL/11 Mbps UL maximum data throughput. The MD8480C's air interface fully complies with the 3GPP recommendations.

The MD8480C provides chipset and wireless device encoding/decoding tests and regression testing as well as protocol sequence tests such as registration, origination, termination, handover (option), and UE/NW release. It also supports application tests for voice communication, packet communication, and end-to-end communication (using two MD8480C units).

Optional GSM/GPRS/EGPRS features allow testing handover between W-CDMA/HSPA and GSM/GPRS/EGPRS. In addition, the MD8480C is well suited for the development of UMTS wireless devices supporting global bands and sophisticated application software.
