Anritsu (Richardson, TX) has announced the PTCRB-approved protocol test case for IMS Emergency Services. This critical test case is available on the ME7834L Protocol Conformance Test (PCT) and Carrier Acceptance Test (CAT) system. The IP Multimedia Subsystem or IP Multimedia Core Network Subsystem (IMS) is an architectural framework for delivering IP multimedia services. It was originally designed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), as a part of the vision for evolving mobile networks beyond GSM. The initial formulation (3GPP Rel-5) represented an approach to delivering “Internet services” over GPRS, and was later updated by 3GPP, 3GPP2 and ETSI TISPAN to require support of networks other than GPRS, such as WLAN, CDMA2000 and fixed lines. The ME7834L PCT:
- Provides device certification solutions for VoLTE and SMS over IMS.
- Is a scalable GCF- and PTCRB-validated test system that enables certification of LTE devices to industry and carrier standards.
- Features test coverage for 3GPP 36.523-1 (Protocol), as well as global operator-specified acceptance test package requirements.
- Can also be configured as a customized integrated environment for InterRAT tests between LTE, GSM, W-CDMA, CDMA2000, and TD-SCDMA mobile systems.
