GCF WI-509-NR Activated by Validation of COMPRION 5G NR USAT Tests on TP227

COMPRION activates WI-509-NR USAT at the GCF Combined Agreement Group #67 meeting, July 20-23, 2021. Test Platform Approval Criteria (TPAC) for WI-509-NR was reached thanks to the validation of priority 1 test cases on TP227 in collaboration with partner Rohde & Schwarz.

The Global Certification Forum (GCF) has accepted the latest initial validations of COMPRION's TP227 5G NR USAT tests for WI-509-NR "USAT Interworking with 5G". Together with the prior GCF approval for WI-508-NR "USIM Interworking with 5G", this makes COMPRION the first and only platform vendor in the world to offer a GCF-approved test platform for fully automated testing of GCF 5G USIM/USAT work items WI-508-NR and WI-509-NR.

COMPRION's solution, listed at GCF and PTCRB as Test Platform 227, is being developed in close collaboration with test equipment provider and long-standing partner Rohde & Schwarz (R&S). TP227 consists of COMPRION's UT³ Platform card simulator and the R&S CMX500 5G radio communication tester from R&S.

The card simulator UT³ Platform, on which COMPRION’s Device Test Center software is executed, is the reliable solution to verify and document that the DUT (Device Under Test) has met the acceptance criteria. USIM/USAT test specifications, defined by 3GPP require an explicit verification of the behavior of the DUT on the card interface.

Udo Willenbrink, Product Manager at COMPRION comments: “Thanks to the long-standing collaboration between Rohde & Schwarz and COMPRION, we have reached yet another milestone which enables customers to perform GCF 5G USIM/USAT device certification. We are pleased to complement the 5G product portfolio with WI-509-NR validated test cases and accelerate time-to-market for COMPRION and R&S customers worldwide.”

“R&S is glad to share COMPRION's progress with its 5G USIM/USAT testing solutions for GCF/PTCRB device certification. The wealth of experience in wireless technologies of both companies is key enabler of this success, which ensures high quality products and certification results for COMPRION’s and our customers”, says Dr. Thomas Eyring, Senior Director of Device Certification at R&S.
