LTE Test Platform

World’s first LTE test platform provides quantum leap test mobile networks Munich (September 30, 2008), Spirent Communications (LSE: SPT), a leading provider of performance testing and service assurance systems for the IT / telecommunications sector, presented at the Broadband World Forum Europe 2008 in Brussels latest technologies for testing and performance analysis of network infrastructures (Spirent booth number B-1020). From September 30 until October 2, 2008 network operators and system manufacturers at Spirent Communications can get an overview of the current state of the art. With Spirent landslide Spirent on the Broadband World introduces the industry-wide first long Forum term Evolution-(LTE)-Testlosung, which is also suitable for the analysis of wireless infrastructures of the fourth generation (4 G). Another highlight: the new modules of the Spirent TestCenter 3000 series to test complex multi play networks. With the introduction of LTE test functionality is Spirent landslide mobile core test platform packet on the first the market available performance testing solution, which is compatible with all major standards for wireless networks. Thus, Spirent landslide is suitable also for the testing of products and services for the fourth generation including WiMAX, HSPA, CDMA or UMTS network infrastructure. The platform provides layer 4-7 testing capability and is able to emulate the movement of 32,000 mobile base stations and 3.2 million users simultaneously acting at a data rate of 120 gigabits per second. Thus creates Spirent landslide test environments, which resemble the real operation conditions, and where problems already identified before the actual use and can be resolved.

With this approach, not only the time-to-market of new services can significantly optimized, at the same time, the emigration rate thanks to high quality-of-experience (QoE) can be significantly reduced. The new the Spirent TestCenter 3000 series modules are another innovation, presented Spirent Communications at the this year’s Broadband World Forum Europe. With the extension of the proven and award-winning Spirent TestCenter testing and measurement specialist on the continuously growing complexity of multi responds play networks and technologies, based on numerous platforms. The high-performance 12-port modules of the Spirent TestCenter 3000 series were explicitly designed for the purpose, to provide a robust and scalable test platform the manufacturers of network equipment and service providers, which provides for a flexible handling of end-to-end testing of triple play in layer 2-7..
