G9200 Radio Conformance Analyzer has now passed the PTCRB TPAC point.
This means that the G9200 is now validated for more than 80% of WI-080/90 based on the 3GPP36.521-1 specification and can now be used for official validation testing.

The G9200 is among very few test platform supporting PTCRB LTE RF Transmitter conformance, receiver characteristic, performance requirement and reporting and channel state information testing.

The unique added value of the G9200 in that area is its size, price performance and solid futuristic roadmap with CA, acoustic testing and more.



Februry 24, 2013

Hermon Labs TI announced today that it will introduce the new G9200 solution for 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) at the 2013 Mobile World Congress, Hall 6, Stand 6F53, Barcelona, Spain, Feb. 25-28.

Hermon Labs TI will show its newest LTE test products, including the first LTE “All-In-One” UE development and testing test platform. The new G9200 replaces over 20 test instruments providing a unique “Lab In a Box” solution that significantly reduces test time and cost.

The G9200 Radio Conformance Analyzer is an advanced “all-in-one” test solution for mobile LTE, and other radio technology equipment. It provides a single highly integrated bench-top instrument with multiple types of test equipment, including a Base Station Emulator (BSE) with up to three cells, Vector Signal Analyzer (VSA), Vector Signal Generator (VSG), Protocol Tester, Fading emulator, power meter, audio analyzer, DC power supply and more. The G9200 is able to perform analysis of LTE mobile devices at all layers from the physical to the application layer, and is suitable for development, conformance, pre-conformance, and production test applications

The G9200 enables the user to run pre-defined tests, customize existing tests, or create new tests using a powerful “drag and drop” script. Tests can be executed conditionally and/or repeatedly in loops, as a function of parameter values and counters. The appearance of the tests and presentation of results is fully configurable. The G9200 allows the user to arrange test results such as graphs, tables, test parameter controls and set limits, as required.

Hermon Labs TI have been providing unique “lab-in-a-box” solutions for many test areas and now this includes the G9200 for LTE terminals. The new innovative LTE “lab-in-a-box” solution for developing and testing LTE terminals is considered the best way to combine a number of functions in a single easily driven product.

As well as the G9200, at Mobile World Congress Hermon Labs TI will also introduce the TCA4100 Telephony Conformance Analyzer, which is an acoustic and voice quality conformance tester for mobile, wireline and wireless phones.

TCA support VoLTE testing.
In an interoperability test event, the TCA4100 and TCA8200 performed successful VoLTE acoustic tests on a LTE phone. Hermon labs uses the leading market LTE base station emulator to establish the LTE air link, while the TCA software controls and measures the tests according to commonly used international standards such as TP.862 PESQ, 3GPP, 3GPP2, TS 36.532, TS 26.131 and ETSI 121.131. the test were performed over an IMS gateway in IPV6 and IPV4 mode to test all the relevant AMR-WB codec modes.
