Spirent Communications, a provider of test, assurance, and analytics solutions, has provided its 5G core network testing solution Spirent Landslide to Dialog Axiata, the largest mobile operator in Sri Lanka.
Dialog Axiata demonstrated a standards-based 5G mobile service, integrating 5G network infrastructure with 5G devices, and chose Spirent Landslide for its 5G core network testing to assure performance of the new services.
Spirent Landslide emulates 5G devices and network functions to validate new 5G mobile and core nodes, ensuring readiness to deliver high-quality 5G services.
Dialog Axiata has deployed several other leading Spirent solutions, including TestCenter and Avalanche. Spirent CloudSure will provide insights into Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) and cloud infrastructure performance.
Spirent’s capabilities in 5G core network testing have been instrumental in the faster rollout of 5G technology and unlocking new and seamless end-user experiences, Pradeep De Almeida, group chief technology officer of Dialog Axiata, said.
Spirent has been working closely with Dialog Axiata since 2018, playing an integral role in network test planning and validation of its next-generation infrastructure, current LTE services, and planned 5G rollout.
“We are collaborating with Dialog Axiata to help them safely accelerate time to market and assure that their 5G network delivers the flawless experiences that customers expect,” said Peter Tan, Spirent’s Vice President of Sales for the APAC region.
Spirent is partnering locally with engineering services contractor ATSL International, which specializes in telco system installation and commissioning. ATSL will be providing the first level maintenance of the Dialog Axiata network through its managed services portfolio, said Thushan Liyanage, head of Division for ATSL Systems Integration.
