Original Press Release
COMPRION Revolutionises Combined (U)SIM and (U)SAT Handset Conformance Testing
Press release date: December 4, 2012
All GSM, W-CDMA and LTE conformance tests according to GCF/PTCRB defined standards can now be performed using a test platform with one single network simulator, the Anritsu MD8475A. The new “COMPRION SIMfony MD8475A” is listed as TP 126 at GCF and is the first validated test platform for executing combined (U)SIM and (U)SAT tests for all 3GPP network standards.
Combined card interface tests are required for handset type approval. They are performed by using a (U)SIM and a network simulator. In the past, the test systems have been designed for testing either 2G/3G or for LTE network technologies. Now, COMPRION’s combined handset test solution “COMPRION SIMfony” has been enlarged by a new family member covering all the 3GPP radio network standards with only one network simulator, the new signalling tester Anritsu MD8475A. The new “COMPRION SIMfony MD8475A” was successfully certified at GCF and PTCRB as TP 126.
COMPRION also offers tests beyond the 3GPP scope of specifications, e.g. OMA Smart Card Web Server tests as well as test case packages according to carrier test plans.
With the increase of LTE devices, expensive protocol testers are working to full capacity without free test time for other tests such as LTE (U)SIM and (U)SAT. With the new COMPRION SIMfony, COMPRION offers a cost-effective test-system running all (U)SIM/(U)SAT interaction tests with a network simulator dedicated to this special task.
The new COMPRION SIMfony system works seamlessly with the signalling tester. All procedures and tests are integrated and controlled using the GUI of the (U)SIM simulator. With its integrated test system synchronisation, full test automation and efficient error debugging capabilities, COMPRION SIMfony is the perfect companion for everyone searching for a fast, reliable and easy-to-use mobile handset conformance test system.
