Vienna, Austria – July 27, 2023 – Anritsu Corporation has seamlessly integrated the new COMPRION SIMplifier hardware in its test setup to offer their customers a fully automated test solution for speeding up and easing GCF/PTCRB conformance and carrier acceptance testing.
Anritsu has integrated the SIMplifier hardware in its ME7834NR 5G NR Mobile Device Test Platform which is used by MNOs, chipset and mobile device manufacturers to perform network operator carrier acceptance and GCF/PTCRB conformance tests. For these type of tests, physical SIM cards had to be exchanged in order to make profile updates. “By integrating the SIMplifier in our test setup, we save time, simplify configuration changes and unlock total automation to enable our customers to run tests overnight without the need for a test engineer present. In order to contribute to the expansion of the 5G mobile market, we would like to future strengthen our collaborative relationship with COMPRION,” says Keiji Kameda, General Manager of Mobile Solutions Division at Anritsu Corporation.
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.”
