Keywords:LTE? test system? UICC?

Aeroflex Inc. and 7Layers, an international group of engineering and test centers, have collaborated to offer what they say is a cost-effective test system geared for the LTE device market. The system assesses the interworking of LTE-capable terminals or chipsets with LTE networks and the Universal Integrated Circuit Card (UICC), they noted.

Based on 7Layers' InterLab Test Solution LTE-USIM/USAT, in combination with the Aeroflex 7100 Digital Radio Test Set, the system boasts reliable test set-up that targets conformance and R&D test purposes.

The Aeroflex 7100 Digital Radio Test Set is an LTE network emulator that provides all the tools required during the design, development and test stages of UE chipsets and LTE-capable terminals meeting 3GPP Rel-8 & 9 standards.

LTE testing

The system geared for conformance and R&D test is based on 7Layers' InterLab Test Solution LTE-USIM/USAT and Aeroflex's 7100 Digital Radio Test Set.

The InterLab Test Solution LTE-USIM/USAT from 7Layers verifies the interworking of LTE-capable devices with LTE networks for TDD and FDD and the respective USIM and USAT applications on the UICC. It covers 3GPP TS 31.121 and TS 31.124 Rel-8/9 test specifications and is a listed test platform at GCF and PTCRB.

The system will enable the user to migrate UICC conformance testing from expensive test systems to a cost-effective solution that allows UICC testing to be performed during R&D. In addition, its GUI allows all test equipment involved to be controlled easily. The high level of automation provides highly reproducible results that are aligned to meet 3GPP standards that are essential in order to achieve GCF and PTCRB certification.
