The Test SIM Simulator is an integral part of the test setup offered by vendors of network test equipment. This new solution enables 100% test automation of network protocol conformance testing. Based on the IT³ Prove! terminal tester (hardware and software), it replaces the physical test SIM card through a simulation. Thus, different UICC profiles (CSIM, USIM, ISIM) needed for the different network access technologies (2G/GSM, UMTS/W-CDMA, CDMA2000, LTE) can be simulated.

Listening to Our Customers
The leading network simulator manufacturers approached Smartjac at the Mobile World Congress and asked for such a solution. Their customers (mobile phone manufacturers, MNOs, test labs) currently test up to 100 different card profiles during network protocol testing of mobile phones. Thus, the testers spend a lot of time inserting different test cards into the device under test, configuring them and running the test cases. The manual swapping and configuring of cards is very time-consuming and error-prone. Wrong configuration scripts or wrong EF content require an additional reset of the card profile through a PC/SC card reader and a test repetition. Because of the high error-rate, the network simulator vendors need to provide a lot of support for identifying and analyzing their customers' problems. Thus, they are interested in offering their customers an automated test solution avoiding human interaction.
The New Solution - Plug and Play
The Test SIM Simulator was made to speed up device testing significantly as it allows a 100% automation. The simulator running on IT³ Prove! replaces the physical test card. Test operators do not have to exchange test SIMs manually between the test runs anymore. They just need to pre-select the respective card profiles.
The Test SIM Simulator is designed to operate with test setups supplied by vendors of network protocol conformance test equipment which offer
