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

3G UMTS Communications Network Lab

GL offers an End-to-End 3G UMTS Communications Network Lab (CNL) with all components such as NodeB, Home NodeB, Home NodeB Gateway, UMTS core network elements such as RNC, MSC, and GPRS core elements such as SGSN, HLR, and GGSN to support mobile call and traffic emulation. The possible simulation includes both User Plane and Control Plane; circuit-switched voice and packet-switched data traffic simulation, resembling real user activity (like web-browsing).

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.

Simulate multiple instances of nodes in network such as MSC, SGSN, and GGSN to perform functional and load/stress testing.

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