Viavi Solutions announced that Mavenir, a provider of network software for mobile operators, has selected Viavi for lab validation of radio access solutions in the U.S.
Viavi’s lab test platform, in use by almost every base station manufacturer in the world, provides scalable test systems for validating network performance as experienced by end users, across multiple cells and different radio access technologies.
The number of 5G subscribers has reached 229 million as of December 2020.
Viavi tools are able to measure the complete performance of the network over multiple interfaces including O-RAN and RF through to the packet core. The platforms create a precise test environment, including feature interactions, simulated RF and mobility, accurate replications of real-world user behavior profiles, together with mobility across the radio access network.
“Viavi has been a collaborative partner with our two companies’ engineering teams working together to prove a new technology against very tight customer timescales,” Ramnik Kamo, EVP Quality, Systems and People, Mavenir, said.
“As vendors develop open, cloud-native and disaggregated architectures, testing against user expectations of service quality will be critical to accelerate adoption at scale,” said Luiz Cesar Oliveira, vice president, Americas, VIAVI.
