Spirent Communications announced that its latest Spirent TestCenter HyperMetrics mX modules enable carriers and their network equipment suppliers to navigate the complexity of converged network elements, ensuring that they perform at scale with realism.
As mobile operators upgrade their networks to support Any G and 4G/ LTE services, there
are three critical parameters that must be optimized to deliver a superior user quality of experience mobility for a seamless user experience, bandwidth management to optimize network resources for demanding applications and network intelligence to enable the monetization of services.
“Converged mobile packet core solutions provide mobile operators with the ability to transform their legacy networks into an open, secure and scalable mobile broadband network that enables them to monetize services and profit from the mobile Internet revolution,” said Infonetics
“Testing with highly-capable tools such as these latest Spirent TestCenter modules helps carriers assess if the mobile broadband gateways they are selecting for their new networks can deliver seamless mobility across 2G, 3G and LTE, while scaling to millions of users in the carrier network.”
Though converged mobile networks simplify the physical network topology, they also introduce a high level of complexity in network design and deployment. To manage mobility and bandwidth and to monetize services, the converged network must support Any G mobility, quality of service (QoS) and deep packet inspection (DPI).
“Converged mobile gateways are designed with enough processing capacity to deliver quality-of-experience-aware applications and content to millions of 3G and 4G/LTE subscribers,” said Jeff Schmitz, vice president, Networks & Applications group at Spirent.
Spirent TestCenter HyperMetrics mX modules simplify and accelerate high-scale mobility, core network, mobile backhaul, routing, access and application testing.
A critical aspect of testing converged mobile networks is determining performance capabilities and limitations of network elements when millions of subscribers concurrently text, tweet, talk, browse or watch videos on their mobile devices.
