Aeroflex and the Beijing StarPoint Telecommunication Software Co. have teamed up to jointly develop the first, full TD-SCDMA protocol conformance test system.

With TD-SCDMA mobile terminal and base station technology now reaching maturity, the protocol conformance test system to be jointly developed by Aeroflex and Beijing StarPoint will support its commercial rollout, both speeding up and decreasing the cost of deployment by reducing the requirement for extensive field and interoperability trials.

To expedite the development of the TD-SCDMA protocol conformance test system, both companies will make available technology for the project from its existing products. Having extensive experience in developing GSM, CDMA and W-CDMA test systems that have been widely adopted by the wireless communications industry, Aeroflex has been tracking the development of the TD-SCDMA standard since 2001. Beijing StarPoint, on the other hand, has developed and is already shipping a TD-SCDMA mobile testerthe SP6010which also utilizes Aeroflex's PXI modules.

"Apart from Beijing StarPoint's SP6010 mobile terminal tester, only relatively simple test equipment such as signal generators and spectrum analysers has been available to date for TD-SCDMA," said Stephen Hire, Aeroflex Asia's director of marketing.

"With around 500 million mobile phone subscribers, making China the world's largest single market, the opportunity for TD-SCDMA is enormous," said Xu Guo Xin, CEO of Beijing StarPoint. "Our agreement with Aeroflex will ensure the rapid development of a full TD-SCDMA protocol conformance test system and reinforce our ability to meet early market demand for comprehensive TD-SCDMA test solutions."
