Anritsu Corporation has taken a significant step in enhancing its test setup by seamlessly incorporating the new COMPRION SIMplifier hardware. This integration provides their customers with a fully automated test solution, streamlining GCF/PTCRB conformance and carrier acceptance testing processes for greater efficiency.
The COMPRION SIMplifier hardware has been integrated into Anritsu’s ME7834NR 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform. This platform is widely utilized by mobile network operators (MNOs), chipset manufacturers, and mobile device makers for conducting critical network operator carrier acceptance and GCF/PTCRB conformance tests. In the past, these tests required the exchange of physical SIM cards to implement profile updates. However, with the SIMplifier now integrated, configuration changes are simplified, and total automation is achieved, enabling customers to run tests overnight without the presence of a test engineer.
Keiji Kameda, General Manager of Mobile Solutions Division at Anritsu Corporation, emphasizes the positive impact of this integration. By saving time and unlocking full automation capabilities, Anritsu aims to contribute to the expansion of the 5G mobile market. Furthermore, they look forward to strengthening their collaborative relationship with COMPRION to continue delivering cutting-edge solutions to their customers.
The COMPRION SIMplifier, a compact and portable hardware device, aims to improve the efficiency of mobile device testing by eliminating the manual process of removing and reinserting the SIM card for profile updates. This is achieved by integrating a PC/SC card reader and a device connector. Udo Willenbrink, Product Manager at COMPRION, explains: “The device is specifically designed to optimise productivity and streamline various test procedures such as GCF/PTCRB protocol conformance testing, regression testing and development testing. In addition, it can be seamlessly integrated into existing test systems, offering versatility for a wide range of use cases. We are pleased that the COMPRION SIMplifier meets Anritsu’s requirements for full test automation.”
