Aeroflex has enhanced its 6103 and 6401 A-GPS conformance test systems for location-based services by adding support for the Open Mobile Alliance Secure User Plane (OMA SUPL) 1.0.
The Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) facilitates global user adoption of mobile data services by specifying market driven mobile service enablers that ensure service interoperability across devices, geographies, service providers, operators and networks.
The Aeroflex 6103 and 6401 now provide A-GPS conformance test within GSM/E-GPRS and UMTS environments respectively.
Relevant test cases have completed development and are being progressively submitted for approval at both the Global Certification Forum (GCF) and the PCS Type Certification Review Board (PTCRB), the globally recognized certification organizations whose aim is to ensure mobile equipment interoperability.
Aeroflex's A-GPS location-based test systems provide a fully integrated environment for conformance verification testing. The systems combine a 12 channel GPS simulator with existing test platforms for the cellular industry.
Aeroflex's GSM/E-GPRS A-GPS system is based on the Aeroflex 6103 AIME/CT GSM Conformance Test System and includes a Serving Mobile Location Center (SMLC) emulator for control over Assistance Data Messaging as well as all the GPS signaling test cases as defined by 3GPP TS 51.010. The system has been designed to be upgradeable to support the Minimum Performance test cases specified in 3GPP TS 51.010 Section 70.11.
Aeroflex's UMTS A-GPS system is based on the Aeroflex 6401 AIME/CT UMTS Conformance Test System. It includes the same SMLC emulator as the GSM system along with the protocol signaling test cases as defined by 3GPP TS 34.123 and the RF performance test cases as defined by 3GPP TS 34.171.
