Communications Network Lab (2G, 2.5G, 3G, 4G, IP, TDM)

2G and 2.5G Communications Network Lab

GL offers an End-to-End 2G and 2.5G  GSM GPRS Communications Network Lab (CNL) with all components such as Base Station, RF channel, GSM core network elements such as BSC, MSC, and GPRS core elements such as SGSN, HLR, and GGSN to support mobile call and traffic emulation.

One can setup a complete virtual real-time network simulating all the network elements, or any of the network elements in the above architecture can be replaced with user's DUT to perform single interface, multi-interface, or wrap-around testing. Complex scenarios such as handovers can be achieved easily.

The lab system can operate with real mobiles, or optionally, with a simulator such as GL’s TRAU Testing Solution. Simulate multiple instances of nodes in network such as MSC, BSS, SGSN, and GGSN to perform functional and load/stress testing.

Verify your latest mobile features over the network with various types of traffic generators and receivers. In GPRS, packet data traffic can be generated and validated with GTP traffic modules. Circuit switched traffic can be generated and recorded using RTP core module.
