Test B42/B43/B48 Citizens broadband Radio Service (CBRS) EUD, CBSD and SAS networks nodes for performance and security

Overview

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.

What It Can Do For You

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.

Why It’s Different

  • Scalable software-based architecture can run on a range of hardware from COTS and high-end customer provided hardware to Virtual Machines and the Cloud (e.g. Amazon AWS) for maximum versatility and performance
  • Web-based UI is easy to learn
  • HTTP API enable integration with automation test systems and other equipment
  • Stateful modeling provides accurate emulation of network elements
  • Turnkey technology, including SIM cards to test UE CPE devices
  • All-in-one method to test the B42/B43/B48 CBRS

Features

  • Attach/Detach,IPv4/IPv6, Normal/Emergency, network rejection, create bearers, perform fuzzing
  • 3rd party OTT tests incl. iPerf, nmap etc.
  • Test the bands that may be unavailable in your geographic region
  • SAS Discovery, Registration,Spectrum Inquiry, Grant, Heartbeat, Deregistration
  • Up to 10,000 clients per server (scalable across machines)
  • True stateful simulation 
  • Generate valid and invalid/negative messages and call-scenarios (fully editable scenarios) 
  • Supports sending invalid messages including malformed, dropped, and misordered packets 
  • Check parameters in messages from SUT and flag errors
  • Protocol Errors
  • Message Timeouts
  • Message request/response time (min/average/max)
  • iPerf OTT to get QoS measurement - throughput and packet loss, etc.
  • In concert with a radar simulator, simulate the LTE CBRS traffic to verify device and ensure SAS functions properly

Automation API

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.

Scripting

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.
