5G SA USIM/USAT Testing with COMPRION SIMfony CMX500

Get ready for 5G with GCF/PTCRB test platform TP227!

If you need to prepare your device for 5G NR operation in standalone (SA) mode, simply add COMPRION SIMfony CMX500. Hence you benefit from the first test tool validated and activating the tests for certification of 5G SA USIM/USAT features!  This way you work on the test platform TP227, listed at GCF and PTCRB as approved for WI-508-NR and WI-509-NR. That means the new 5G Work Items number 508  is testing the New Radio features for USIM and number 509 for USAT. Now, the new R&S® CMX500 Radio Communication Tester works with the (U)SIM simulator UT³ Platform. Using this setup you benefit from the worldwide first test platform with 5G tests validated at PTCRB and GCF.


5G SA USIM Testing

For GCF/PTCRB "USIM Interaction with 5G" device certification, GCF WI-508-NR and PTCRB RFT 508 list tests from
3GPP TS 31.121 Release 16 in the following clauses:
•   5.3 "Handling subscription identifier privacy for 5G"
•   5.4  "Unified Access Control information handling for 5G-NR"
•   15.1 "Authentication procedure for EAP-AKA"
•   15.2 "Authentication procedure for 5G AKA"

Hence, these come with the following COMPRION SIMfony CMX500 packages:
•    Clause 5.3: 3GPP TS 31.121 USIM 5G Test Bench Stage 1 – All 17 test cases available and GCF/PTCRB validated!
•    Clause 5.4: 3GPP TS 31.121 USIM 5G Test Bench Stage 2

•    Clauses 5.5, 15.1 and 15.2: 3GPP TS 31.121 USIM 5G Test Bench Stage 3 – All 10 tests available and GCF/PTCRB validated!

5G SA USAT Testing

So far, 34 tests for 5G SA USAT have been defined according to 3GPP TS 31.124 Release 15, but more will be added by maintaining this work item.

These tests cover the following features:
•    Provide Local Information
•    Refresh
•    BIP (Open Channel, Close Channel, Receive Data, Send Data, Get Channel Status)
•    Event Download (Location Status, Data Available, Channel Status Change, Access Technology Change, Network Rejection, Data Connection Change)
•    CALL CONTROL on PDU Session for NG-RAN
•    SMS-PP Download via DL NAS TRANSPORT message

The Work GCF-WI-509-NR and PTCRB RFT 509 list these tests for GCF/PTCRB "USAT Interaction with 5G" device certification.

Here 9 tests cases are available in 3GPP TS 31.124 USAT 5G Test Bench Stage 1, and all have been validated at GCF and PTCRB!

Since COMPRION has activated this GCF Work Item with the CMX500, the related tests and features are now available for certification. Stay ahead with TP 227!

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
