Anritsu releases functional test solution for Russian emergency call system
Anritsu has released the test solution used by the leading Eurasian Economic Union's certification center of telematics, telecoms and vehicles, Svyaz-sertificat, compliant with GOST 33467-2015 specifications.
Anritsu Corporation (CEO Hirokazu Hamada) has collaborated with Svyaz-sertificat, a leading Russian certification body within Eurasian Economic Union, and software development company BI.Zone, to release the Automated Functional Test Tool (AFTT), a suite of certification test software for use with Anritsu's MD8475A/B signaling tester.
Since January 2017, all new vehicles sold in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) have been required to be equipped with the ERA-GLONASS emergency call system which passed the GOST certification test.
Svyaz-sertificat and BI.Zone have developed the Automated Functional Test Tool (AFTT), certification test software for use with the MD8475A/B and have already used it for GOST 33467 certification tests at Svyaz-sertificat. Until now, the test system has been available only at Svyaz-sertificat’s facility in Russia, requiring customers wanting to sell vehicles to the Eurasian Economic Union to perform the test at their site.
With the MD8475A/B and AFTT sold through Anritsu EMEA Ltd., functional testing in conformity to GOST 33467 can now be performed in customers’ own labs. This enables in-house conformity assessment in parallel with product development, reducing the risk of failing certification tests in Russia and reducing the cost of rework such as adjustments or re-inspections.
