5G NETWORKS MUST DELIVER HIGH PERFORMANCE AND QOS
5G is happening now, worldwide. Which use case will provide the most ARPU—eMBB, URLCC, or mMTC? Who will drive network slicing? How will 5G interact with and overlay 4G/LTE networks? Service providers and equipment manufacturers are challenged to answer these questions to best compete.
Ixia produces the world’s only solution that can test both RAN and Core in a single product, providing realistic, large-scale simulations. Cutting through the challenges of combining old and new technologies and combining XAir2 4G/LTE test platform with its new XAir3 5G test platform, users can validate their sub-6Ghz and mmWave radio solutions. Ixia’s 5G Core test solution validates all the new 5G technologies and services at industry-leading scale and performance.
ASSESS 5G CONVERGENCE AT SCALE
5G Core (5GC) introduces many innovative technologies including new protocols, service-based architecture, virtualization, and network slicing. The elastic nature of the 5GC network creates new challenges for testing the core network elements, both in isolation and in end-to-end setups.
Powered by high-scale 5GC test engine, Ixia’s IxLoad Wireless 5G Core Testing solution allows service providers and NEMs to test the cellular networks of tomorrow, from end-to-end or in isolation, and measure subscriber quality of experience. It provides the needed insight into making sure operators can monetize services as advertised, based on measurable key performance indicators (KPIs). Ixia is enabling a smooth transition to 5G with best-in-class wireless test solutions that validate the quality of experience of wireless services at massive scale.
LTE TO 5G STEPPING STONES
Ixia’s XAir3 provides state-of-the-art user equipment (UE) emulation that enables a powerful gNB test solution. It offers a complete, 360-degree validation of 5G Non Standalone RAN by generating realistic and easily-configured traffic models and call patterns. Together with our established XAir2 platform, it delivers a solid LTE anchor to simulate thousands of UEs through automated testing as well as to verify performance and capacity through configurable stress tests. XAir3 is designed to support both frequency ranges defined by 3GPP specification-sub6GHz (FR1) and mmWave (FR2)-providing reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) to our customers.
