Anritsu extends the functions of their MD8475A signalling testers to support verification tests of HSPA Evolution and DC-HSDPA smartphones and mobile terminals with the roll out of the MD8475A-011 HSPA Evolution signalling unit as well as the MX847510A-011 and MX847570A-011 HSPA Evolution/ DC-HSDPA software options.
The MD8475A is the ideal solution for communications carriers and handset manufacturers worldwide needing to test and verify their LTE smartphones and mobile terminals.
The MD8475A signalling testers combine a versatile line-up of hardware and software combinations in an all-in-one, easy-to-operate unit to simulate base stations for the world's key mobile technologies.
The new options now enable the MD8475A to simulate both HSPA Evolution and DC-HSDPA base station operations for configuring a connection verification testing environment. The MX847570A-011 option controls the MD8475A GUI interface, making it easy to set the HSPA Evolution/ DC-HSDPA smartphone and mobile terminal test conditions.
The MD8475A-011, MX847510A-011 and MX847570A-011 options are installed in the MD8475A signalling testers to support cost-effective function and service verification tests of HSPA Evolution/ DC-HSDPA smartphones and mobile terminals.
HSPA Evolution and DC-HSDPA smartphones and mobile terminals are multimode systems able to communicate within and between 3G and 2G base station service areas such as W-CDMA, HSPA, and GSM.
Since the versatile MD8475A signalling testers support each of these mobile technologies, only one unit is needed to simulate base stations supporting HSPA Evolution/DC-HSDPA smartphones and mobile terminals, resulting in cost savings.
