eCall Conformance and Performance Testing

Emergency Call (eCall) is a service provided in Europe with the goal of reducing response times for accidents or other emergencies on the roadways. This whitepaper briefly describes the technology behind eCall and presents conformance tests for eCall using the R&S CMW500 RF tester and the R&S SMBV100A vector signal generator. A Test software for eCall makes it quick and easy to perform these tests with the GSM or WCDMA wireless communications standard. It also shows a test solution for GNSS performance tests for eCall using the R&S SMBV100A vector signal generator and the option R&S SMBV-K361 together with CMWrun.
