Overview

The Valid8 3G Network Emulator is a comprehensive solution for 3G UMTS network emulation and load testing. It enables testing of the Iuh inferface towards the HNB Gateway and the IuCS and IuPS interfaces towards the RNC/HNB Gateway. Options are available to include real or simulated HNBs.

Features

  • Realistic network emulation of up to 1,000s of devices and calls (scalable)

  • RANAP request/response messages for call handling, mobility management

  • Report on media received, call connect time, call duration, jitter, packet loss

  • Mobile calling - MTC and MOC

  • Flexible, configurable dial-plan - options to page other mobiles, simulate PSTN terminated call and play reference media files, or media echo

  • SMS - outbound and inbound

  • PS connection to internet

  • MMS - mobile delivery

  • Runs over SIGTRAN/SCTP

  • 3G/4G handover option

  • Generate valid and invalid/negative messages and call-scenarios

  • Supports sending invalid responses including malformed, dropped and misordered packets

  • Alerts and notifications

  • Check parameters in messages from SUT and flag errors
