Wednesday 29 Apr 2020 | Associate Member | Member Press Release |

COMPRION and Anritsu are proud to announce the worldwide release of the first test platform for USIM/USAT handset testing within the 5G New Radio (NR) Network.

Leading test expert COMPRION releases the first commercially available solution for 5G NR USIM handset conformance testing according to GCF WI-508-NR and PTCRB RFT 508-1. These contain USIM interworking with 5G tests defined in 3GPP TS 31.121 Rel-15. The COMPRION SIMfony MT8000A solution is offered in cooperation with Anritsu, a leading global provider of test and measurement solutions for the communication industry. The test platform is listed as test platform TP226 at the Global Certification Forum (GCF) and PTCRB.

Udo Willenbrink, Product Manager at COMPRION, comments, “COMPRION is pleased that 5G NR USIM/USAT conformance testing can finally start with the help of our new test platform. This milestone has been achieved thanks to the joined efforts of Anritsu and COMPRION.”

Kevin Ingrams, Marketing Director at Anritsu, adds, “Anritsu is pleased to continue our successful partnership with COMPRION in developing market leading test solutions for mobile handsets. This latest 5G USIM/USAT solution demonstrates the technology leadership that both companies have established in the 5G mobile device testing market.”

COMPRION SIMfony MT8000A consists of the Anritsu 5G Base Station Simulator MT8000A and the COMPRION (U)SIM Simulator UT³ Platform for 5G NR USIM/USAT conformance testing. The solution is also available with COMPRION’s Prove 2 pre-conformance test tool. Newly defined 5G NR UIMS/USAT tests for 3GPP TS 31.121 and 3GPP TS 31.124 will be made available on this platform as well.

UT³ Platform is the heart of the COMPRION terminal test solution and is validated as a platform for conformance testing at GCF, PTCRB, EMVCo, and NFC Forum. In addition to conformance testing, it is a fully configurable analog and logical card simulator for testing mobile phones and NFC-enabled devices with focus on contact and contactless smart card interface technologies.

Anritsu MT8000A is a radio communications test station that supports RF measurements and protocol tests for both the sub-6 GHz and the 5G millimeter wave bands. In addition to supporting 4×4 MIMO and 8CA implemented by eMBB (Enhanced Mobile Broadband), it provides a flexible environment for future 5G test requirements, including URLLC (Ultra-Reliable and Low Latency Communications) and mMTC (Massive Machine Type Communications).
