Delivering new functions or proof-of-concept demonstrations first demands tools that stay ahead of the most advanced LTE roadmaps. The DuoSIM-A FT supports eNB development for the world’s most advanced LTE networks.
Optimize CAPEX and OPEX
The DuoSIM-A FT uses a modular hardware architecture that scales up easily to increase the system’s capacity without losing any functionality.
Advanced features make functional testing with the DuoSIM-A simpler and save valuable time and space in test labs.
The eNodeB is a critical piece in the infrastructure of LTE networks. Every enhancement, patch, and configuration change requires testing to assure this crucial network node is fully functional before deployment in a live network. Validating functionality is also crucial in the early stages of new product development. The DuoSIM-A FT is the perfect tool for helping development engineers pursue improvement and innovation of eNB and eNB features.
Proving the feasibility early-on of new concepts, products, and features positions vendors as market leaders and gives them access to valuable feedback before their competitors. Vendors have used the DuoSIM-A FT to demonstrate their RAN technology innovations, even before prototype chipsets were available. The DuoSIM-A FT uses a wrap-around configuration to simulate both UE and Core Network interfaces simultaneously, which provides maximum stability for identifying problems and validating the performance of new features.
The DuoSIM-A produces detailed logs and test results from both UE and Core Network simulation modules. If it detects a problem (for example, a UE reporting lower than expected throughput) after a change in the eNodeB configuration, engineers can quickly diagnose the cause and find a solution. Parameters can also be set independently for every UE, so the DuoSIM-A FT can also help troubleshoot problems discovered after development by reproducing the complex network conditions that caused them.
