Test system for eMBMS applications
The company has added the necessary test cases to its CMWcards GUI. Evolved multimedia broadcast multicast service (eMBMS) is an LTE service that enables the simultaneous transmission of mobile TV, videos and other files to many users via all base stations and multiple cells.
The latest test cases cover all signaling procedures and user experience tests for multicast scenarios, which can be flexibly arranged by the user. The CMWcards GUI allows users to configure up to two MBMS single-frequency networks via drag and drop, each consisting of no more than two LTE cells. Parameters such as transmission reference time and procedures such as user equipment interest indications are easily retrievable. No programming knowledge is required.
The integrated eMBMS service layer is another special feature of the CMW500. It handles all broadcast and multicast service center (BMSC) server functions, effectively eliminating the need for an external eMBMS middleware as required by other test systems.
The CMW500 and CMWcards also give users the option of verifying mobile devices throughout an entire wireless ecosystem. The test platform is the only one on the market to support all conventional roaming, mobility and interoperability tests with technologies including WCDMA, GSM, WLAN/Wi Fi and Release 10 carrier aggregation.
