Signal tester from Anritsu
Anritsu has introduced two new software options for its MD8475A signalling tester, adding IMS/ETWS service function tests for LTE smartphones and mobile terminals by upgrading the functions of the MX847570A SmartStudio package, while also releasing the new MX847570A-080 Extended CSCF option.
The MD8475A signalling tester is a base station simulator incorporating hardware and software supporting various mobile communications technologies, including LTE, W-CDMA, etc. The MX847570A SmartStudio software for the MD8475A offers a GUI for setting parameters for each communications test.
With this new introduction, the functions of the MX847570A are strengthened by adding the CSCF Serve function for controlling IMS services such as VoLTE and SMS over IMS, as well as the Public Warning Service Center function for controlling ETWS services.
Installing the upgraded MX847570A SmartStudio in the LTE test configuration of the MD8475A not only eliminates the need to write complex sequence programs but also supports service function tests of LTE smartphones and mobile terminals offering IMS/ETWS services.
