Anritsu Co. announced that the Global Certification Forum (GCF) recently confirmed at the CAG#38 meeting in Taipei that the Anritsu ME7834L Protocol Conformance Test (PCT) system has achieved the highest number of approved IMS test cases for device certification. Among the 22 validated IMS test cases are a number of unique and industry first GCF approvals for IMS, further solidifying Anritsu’s position as the market leader in providing pre-certification/certification test solutions to wireless device manufacturers for fast and cost-efficient product validation. 

The most recent GCF certification of the ME7834L PCT test cases continues the on-going success of Anritsu, which received the world’s first IMS Emergency Services test case validation from PTCRB in March. Anritsu now has approved test cases for the GCF work items covering Mobile Telephony Service over IMS (MTSI), SMS over IMS, as well as exclusive coverage for Emergency Call over IMS and (IMS) Service Specific Access Control.

“Anritsu continues to demonstrate its position as a market-leading conformance test provider. The recent approval of the IMS test cases reinforces our commitment to provide test solutions that allow device manufacturers to bring leading-edge products to market with confidence. Our goal is to provide customers with the broadest test capabilities as defined by the GCF and PTCRB, as well as carrier/operator-specified test requirements,” said Dr. Pete Alexander, Vice President and General Manager of Anritsu Company.

The ME7834L is a scalable GCF- and PTCRB-validated test system that enables certification of LTE devices to industry and carrier standards. Test coverage is available for 3GPP 36.523-1 (Protocol), as well as global operator-specified acceptance test package requirements. The ME7834L can also be configured as a customized integrated environment for InterRAT tests between LTE, GSM, W-CDMA, CDMA2000 and TD-SCDMA mobile systems.
