•Call processing and protocol test capabilities for multiple communication systems (W-CDMA, GSM/GPRS/EGPRS, CDMA2000, 1xEV-DO Rev.0 and A, TD-SCDMA)
•Wide frequency coverage (400 MHz to 2.7 GHz) allows emulation of global networks and bands
•A single platform implements functional testing of UE applications such as voice calling, video calling, packet communications and SMS/MMS
•Simple call setup and status/monitoring using the WNS (Wireless Network Simulator) GUI
•Advanced mobile device and application testing using C and PERL-based scenario scripting (i.e. W-CDMA: Voice/Video call/Packet; GSM: Voice; GPRS/EGPRS: Packet; PERL for CDMA 2000)
The MD8470A Signaling Tester offers the optimum solution for mobile UE protocol stack with a focus on application development. It supports the processes required for testing various applications including voice calling, browser/contents download, video calling, and end-to-end UE communications (with a single MD8470A). Also, the PPP server functionality is included.
The Wireless Network Simulator software incorporated in the MX847010A W-CDMA/GSM Simulation Kit simulates interactive base station operation and allows basic connection tests to be performed without creating scenarios, reducing the costs of creating and managing scenarios. With its enhanced W-CDMA/GSM functions, the WNS software and Simulation Kit provide solutions that support the ever-increasing number of wireless device applications. More complex testing is also supported by C-based scenario scripting, allowing execution of custom sequences and viewing/analysis of protocol logs.
In addition to W-CDMA / GSM testing using WNS and C-scenarios, the MD8470A also offers test capability for both TD-SCDMA and 1xRTT/1xEV-DO at the application layer and lower in the protocol stack. TD-SCDMA testing is supported trough C-based scenario scripting, while 1xRTT/1xEV-DO testing is supported with WNS, native PERL, Scenario Composer, or other APIs.
