Aeroflex Ships First EvDO Rev A Signalling Conformance Solution

Aeroflex has become the first company to offer a comprehensive EvDO Rev. A signalling conformance solution following the delivery of a fully automated C.S0038-A-compliant suite of test cases for its 6402 CDMA AIME network emulator. The addition of the C.S0038-A EvDO Rev. A signalling conformance test suite significantly extends the capability of the Aeroflex 6402 CDMA AIME which already supports conformance tests for 1x, EvDO Rev. 0, mobile IP and location-based services.

“We have designed the C.S0038-A EvDO Rev. A test cases to be fully automated so that they can be run with minimum operator intervention and without the need for separate diagnostic tools or specialised drivers,” said Bruce Jolly, CDMA product manager, Aeroflex Test Solutions, Wireless Division. “This makes their set-up and execution quick, simple and painless for all customers.”

The addition of EvDO Rev. A technology to networks improves data rates and provides advanced quality of service capabilities, which better facilitates video streaming and VoIP applications. Aeroflex’s aggressive introduction of signalling conformance test capability is in direct response to industry demand for early access to test solutions to ensure the timely and successful roll-out of EvDO Rev. A devices and applications.

Verizon Wireless and many other test labs have recently acquired Aeroflex’s EvDO Rev. A signalling conformance test solution.

The C.S0038-A EvDO Rev.A signalling conformance test capability is shipping immediately on all new purchases of the Aeroflex 6402 CDMA AIME network emulator and is also available as an upgrade to existing systems.
