Aeroflex launched a development and conformance test system that can test applications running on all major cellular phones, including GSM/EGPRS and w-cdma. Aeroflex bills its new Air Interface Monitor Emulator/Applications Test (AIME/AT) conformance test system to be the first test system of any kind that can test applications on GSM/W-CDMA and CDMA handsets on a single platform. The AIME/AT system can be used for live network testing or in conjunction with any of the company's GSM, W-CDMA and CDMA protocol test systems for deterministic lab testing.

"Application developers can no longer think of themselves as being part of either the CDMA or GSM world. Instead it is now essential to be able to market their applications globally," said Peter Connell, GM for Aeroflex Burnham. "Our new multi-standard applications test platform will give them and their customers the ability to ensure that their products will work around the world without interoperability problems"

Aeroflex has taken a "protocol agnostic" approach to applications testing that is air interface independent. The AIME/AT test system can be used to verify that a cellular handset can pass all applicable minimum and application-enabled conformance tests, along with all operator-specific test plans. It can also be used to ensure data performance/throughput, application performance and recovery from network failure conditions.

After MMS, the company explained, the next two applications that will need certification are Video Telephony (two way images in real-time) and Digital Rights Management (to prevent data forwarding). Following those will be Video Streaming (downloading images), Instant Messaging, Push-To-Talk over Cellular and Browsing. As test cases are defined, they can be downloaded and run on the AIME/AT test system.
