The CBRS suite enables emulation, load testing and conformance of CBRS devices and network components. The CBRS Load Tester can simulate EUDs and CBSDs to test SAS servers, with customizable message flows and content. The CBRS Emulator can emulate CBSDs or SAS servers to test equipment under real-world conditions. The CBRS Conformance suite includes valid and negative tests to verify correct implementation of CBSD and SAS nodes.
Flexible, portable, cost-effective solution to test CBRS servers and clients. The Valid8 CBRS testing suite simulates CBRS call flows from multiple EUDs, CBSDs and SAS server in order to test and evaluate their performance under high loads and security under adverse conditions. The technology can test across the 3.5 - 3.7GHz band that encompasses the CBRS spectrum. The platform can test CBRS CPE, IoT UE devices using its test network to simulate CBRS B42/43/48 eNodeB and core network.
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 the SAS Server, the Valid8 Tester can generate CBRS CBSD messages to test performance, stability and security.
For testing the CBSD Server, the Valid8 Tester can generate CBRS SAS messages to test performance, stability and security.
