Simplified Licensing

Because both, the licenses for the COMPRION modules and for the test benches of the Anritsu MT8000A are stored in the Device Test Center, handling is simpler now: For example, if your MT8000A is out for repair or calibration, it is now possible to exchange the Anritsu MT8000A against another with the same configuration. But it works without the need for a new license related to the new network simulator hardware. This way you can directly continue your testing which saves efforts and costs.

Simplified Licensing

Now, handling for repair or maintenance is simpler. This is because licenses for the COMPRION modules as well as for the COMPRION SIMfony CMX500 are stored in the Device Test Center (Platform Software). If your network simulator is out for repair, it can directly be replaced by a device of the same configuration. Unlike before, this does not require any new license. Hence, testing can continue on directly saving efforts and costs

COMPRION Test Platforms

Since long COMPRION SIMfony MD8475A is one of the most commonly used test platforms for mobile device testing. If you need to gain market access through compliance to 2G/3G or LTE, prove it comfortably with Test Platform TP151. SIMfony MD8575A consists of UT³ Platform, the Anritsu signalling tester MD8475A plus the corresponding software.

 

More important, it saves time with comfortable automation functions like Terminal Application Provider and remote control. Alternatively, you can save money with the so-called pre-conformance variant installed on Prove 2 instead of UT³ Platform. In-house conformance evaluation parallel to the product development reduces the risk to fail the approval test and the costs for the test sessions in a test house significantly.

COMPRION Test Platform 150

Assure 4G connectivity of your IoT solutions with SIMfony CMW 500. This GCF and PTCRB approved test platform validates your component´s  conformance to implement cellular connectivity for Internet of Things use cases. It addresses the need of low power consumption combined with high numbers of devices that access the network relatively rarely. For those devices usually built into modules for sensors, telematics control units or machine status controllers, connectivity is king to flawless operation.

The setup uses R&S®CMW500 Wideband Radio Communication Tester and the UT³ Platform and it is approved at GCF and PTCRB as Test Platform TP150.

Setup of TP 150 approved at GCF and PTCRB with R&S CMW500 and UT³ Platform

Alternatively your are able to run those test cases on non-validated hardware. Thus SIMfony CMW 500 is also available with Prove 2 in a less costly variant. Since pre-conformance testing reduces the risk to fail the approval test, you lower the costs for the test sessions in a test house significantly.

LTE-M and NB-IoT Compliance

Mobile IoT Made Future Proof for Global Use

 

Covered Network Technologies

 

Connect your mobile IoT solution with LTE-M and NB-IoT compliance

On the one hand more and more 2G and  3G networks are being deactivated. On the other hand a long life IoT solution requires a path into 5G networks. Here, SIMfony CMW500 helps to assure cellular connectivity for mobile IoT. As it tests LTE-M and NB-IoT compliance for USIM/USAT, global and reliable connectivity to mobile networks is assured. More important,  LTE-M and NB-IoT compliance reap benefits from optimized network technology: long battery life due to minimized power consumption and small data rates. Finally, both have a path into 5G as they can operate in a 5G New Radio band. In a nutshell, global and future proof technology for mobile IoT.

For LTE-M and NB-IoT compliance the setup requires R&S®CMW500 Wideband Radio Communication Tester and the UT³ Platform. Together, they are approved at GCF and PTCRB as Test Platform TP150. To gain market access you need to prove conformance by GCF and PTCRB certification, therefore you need an approved test platform.

Setup of TP 150 approved at GCF and PTCRB with R&S CMW500 and UT³ Platform

Need to save time? Benefit from the automation with COMPRION Terminal Automation Provider. With this control software you adapt equipment just once. Then you can run the efficient batch mode for  regression tests.

Alternatively your are able to run those test cases on non-validated hardware. Thus, SIMfony CMW 500 is also available with Prove 2 in a less costly variant. Since pre-conformance testing reduces the risk to fail the approval test, it lowers the cost and length for the test sessions in a recognized test lab significantly.
