Other Features


Test W-CDMA HSDPA Enabled Devices

Option 419 generates transport layer coded HSDPA signals for performing BLER tests on mobile handsets. Test advanced functionality by creating dynamic downlink transmissions that change modulation type and coding parameters based on simulated mobile handset responses for CQI and HARQ. The uplink HSDPA control channel enables testing of a base transceiver station’s ability to correctly receive and properly decode control information.

Test W-CDMA HSUPA Enabled Devices

Generate real-time physical layer coded signals for performing BER test on base transceiver stations or transport layer coded signals for performing BLER analysis. Additionally, perform closed loop testing with a base transceiver station using advanced features including HARQ, E-TFC and transmit power control (TPC) using real-time feedback or simulated feedback from a user file. The downlink HSUPA control channels enable testing of a mobile handset’s ability to correctly receive and properly decode control information.
