Centro de Tecnologa de las Comunicaciones S.A. announced that its Mobile Communications Integrated Tester (MINT) has been selected by PVG (PCS 850/1900 Validation Group) as one of the reference platforms to carry out GSM RF conformance testing according to NAPRD.03 (North America Program Reference Document).

The MINT RF tester is a dual mode test system for 2G, 2.5G and 3G products that performs automatically the conformance RF Test Specifications for GSM 850/900/1800/1900, GPRS and WCDMA FDD. The tester also supports protocol conformance test cases for WCDMA according to 3GPP TS 34.123-3.

"After getting GCF validation in a record time, we are now very proud that MINT is an accepted platform for PTCRB testing," said Product Manager Juan Carlos Mora.

PVG is a group of validation organizations working in the field of PCS 850/1900 and/or associates technologies, and one of their main tasks is to select the right test equipment to be used by PTCRB (PCS Type Certification Review Board) accredited laboratories. PTCRB is the certification scheme that must be followed by mobile communications manufacturers to obtain an IMEI for mobile devices intended for the North American market, and is becoming a standard for those companies aiming to commercialise GSM products in the U.S. and Canada.
