The Valid8 3G Network Emulator provides an all-in-one, cost-effective and ultra-portable 3G UMTS network for demonstration, testing and training purposes.
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. The Valid8 3G Network Emulator is capable of simulating and testing several devices individually or in parallel and is scalable to fit your needs. It enables testing of the A interface and the Gb interface over IP towards the BSC. It simulates HNB, HNB-GW, MSC, SGSN, GGSN, SMSC, HSS/HLR - IuCS, IuPS.
The Valid8 3G Network Emulator is comprised of multiple subsystems that are available individually or in parallel, and are scalable to fit your needs. The individual emulators are controllable through their call controllers, and the traffic can be captured through use of a remote capture tool such as Wireshark.
User commands can be fully automated using REST API. This includes performing all test control functions as well as collecting results and metrics. It can be integrated into virtually any CI system via the HTTP API, including Jenkins, CircleCI, Gitlab and others.
The application’s subsystems can be edited directly in the browser using TDL or by using the graphical tools. The Message Workshop allows for creating of test scenarios directly from the hex stream of a remote capture, while the Graphical Editor (on the feature roadmap for 2019) will allow for creating customized call scenarios by dragging and dropping the call flow to meet your test needs.
For testing UE or IoT devices, the 5G, 4G or 3G Network Emulators can provide the entire core network as well as an emulated or real base station depending on your test needs.
