Acoustics and voice quality conformance testing for mobile, wireline and wireless phones

The TCA 4100 provides a fully automated & affordable voice quality and acoustics conformance test solution according to major worldwide standards.

This highly integrated test system provides the hardware and software required for testing almost any type of wire-line and wireless phones,  electroacoustic and audio devices.

The system can be optionally configured with a VoIP software interface, analog PSTN interface, cellular RF base station simulator, wireless DECT, Wi-Fi base stations, Bluetooth wireless interface and acoustic interfaces such as HATS (Head and Torso Simulator) or a test head.

The interfaces are calibrated together and automatically controlled by the system software.

Designed for R&D, test labs and high-speed production testing, the TCA 4100 powerful management and automation features simplify and shorten the testing cycle.

Acoustic and Telephonometry Testing

Acoustic tests are performed to assess electro-acoustic performance, speech quality of phones and to verify compatibility with other phones and communication networks.

Various characteristics of a phone are tested over its electro-acoustic path between the phone’s interface, microphone, speaker and line (wired or wireless).

Handset phones are placed in HATS (Head And Torso Simulator) or in a test head which provides the reference standard positions from the built-in ear and mouth simulators.

The ear and mouth simulators are connected to the TCA 4100 internal input preamplifier and output power amplifier.

Hands-free phones should be tested in a quiet environment such as an anechoic chamber with a test head that has a hands-free positioner or with HATS (depending on the standards).

Tests are performed according to procedures and specifications defined in ITU-T, ETSI, TIA and other standards.

User-defined tests can also be performed.

Coupled with other testing capabilities such as signaling functional testing and simulation, SIP (VoIP) protocol conformance testing, the TCA 4100 is a comprehensive tool for conformance, R&D, QA and production testing of phones.
