Aspects Software will be launching its new SmartStation3S testing tool at 3GSM 2006. It represents an ultra portable version of its leading test equipment, with new features including faster processing, wider test capabilities and easier configuration. Together with Aspects’ market leading suite of test and development tools – PowerMonitor, PowerAnalyser, PowerScript, PowerUSIM and PowerSIM – the SmartStation3S presents terminal manufacturers, smart card vendors and mobile phone operators with enhanced testing ability.

Aspects, as the market leader, has a history and reputation of delivering Test Tools for the mobile market facilitating the inspection, analysis and examination of communications between 3G and GSM terminal handsets and their (U)SIM cards and ensuring field compliance.

Didier Sérodon, CEO of Aspects Software comments ‘After a period of market analysis and revisiting customer requirements we have made a considerable investment in bringing our new Test Tool Suite to market. The SmartStation3 family is truly market-oriented and offers faster problem analysis, enhanced integration and wider testing capabilities. It has also been future-proofed and will be able to host a number of features which will be launched over time. Not only does the SmartStation3 provide a natural path for (U)SIM handset testing but it also brings its unique features to the Finance, Java Card and ID markets.’

Aspects Test Tools are all about providing terminal handset and card manufacturers with the reassurance that their products will adhere to the relevant international standards and are market ready, so that they will not incur expensive product recalls, if subsequent problems are uncovered.

Leigh Mullin, Aspects’ Head of Engineering adds, ‘We took a step back to truly understand what the market was looking for and have re-engineered the SmartStation platform to address industry testing and standards compatibility needs. As a result of our efforts, the SmartStation3S is now highly portable; it can easily be moved to remote test sites. Increased processing power has facilitated faster and more efficient working, enabling engineers to identify and resolve terminal / card communications issues more quickly. Aspects always had a reputation for its robust test solutions, and considerable investment in the supporting firmware and software has made the new SmartStation3 and SmartStation3S platforms even more stable.’
