CETECOM upgrades its 3G test equipment for HSPA, FDD IV and FDD VIII

Functional extension broadens the scope of services for CETECOM customers

To meet the requirements of the Global Certification Forum (GCF Ltd.) and of PTCRB, CETECOM has recently invested in upgrading its Anritsu TRX 3G RF test system and its Anritsu RRM 3G test system: the implementation of the test cases for WI-024 (HSDPA), WI-025 (HSUPA) and FDD IV enable CETECOM to offer the required tests to its customers now.

Thanks to its investment in Anritsu’s TRX, CETECOM is the first test laboratory in Europe that is operating this kind of test platform and the only test laboratory in the world that has two test systems at its disposal that provide these testing capacities: Anritsu’s TRX and the Rohde & Schwarz test platform TS8950-W.

In addition to the upgrades for HSPA and FDD IV, CETECOM has invested in upgrading two of its test platforms for FDD VIII: the Rohde & Schwarz CRTU-RRM test system and CETECOM’s own test platform FACTSware are now equipped for this frequency band.

CETECOM – a subsidiary of RWTÜV AG with headquarters in Essen (Germany) – is a worldwide leading provider in consulting, testing, certification and approval services for the mobile communications and the wireless industry with several state-of-the-art testing laboratories in Europe, the USA and Asia.
