End-to-end testing for 5G standalone networks

Test and verification for 5G standalone networks


  • Test and validation of RTP and RTCP is imperative as video and VoIP traffic drives global mobile data usage
  • How do you test 5G SA control-plane signalling for roaming without a 5G Core?
  • Full-stack simulation of MSRP-based traffic is imperative for validating MaaP, RCS, RBM and IMS

Validating 5G standalone

Solver – end-to-end testing for 5G standalone networks

Solver provides complete end-to-end test capabilities for 5G standalone networks, covering all core nodes and interfaces. It enables the validation, assurance and emulation of key functions, with the simulation of User Equipment (UE) from the gNodeB.

End-to-end testing is essential, to ensure that services perform as expected and with the requisite scale. Solver provides a single platform that enables this to be achieved via automated test programmes, aligned with your DevOps CI / CD schedules.

  • Ensure your 5G SA network scales with user adoption and traffic
  • Model different traffic patterns and flows
  • Create unique user content packages, reflecting different services and applications
Build a more accurate picture of UE behaviour

Since network coverage is not uniform, Solver also includes handover simulation options. This create a more accurate picture of UE behaviour, as interworking with 4G, 3G and other networks can be modelled, reflecting fallback when 5G coverage is unavailable. Solver can also extend to dedicated network slices and low-latency scenarios.

Individual node testing

Individual nodes can be tested in isolation to validate functionality and performance. Multiple notes can be tested in parallel, together with different interfaces. This flexibility means that a single solution can extend to many different use cases and test scenarios.

Fully automated and integrated

Solver can be fully automated and integrated with staging networks, ensuring that all new releases are fully validated before moving to production networks. It can test nodes in isolation, or perform ‘wraparound’ testing, as well as emulating 5G to 4G service interworking. It can also be deployed in live networks and slices for canary testing.

  • N1 / N2 / N3 / N4 / N6 / N 11 interface support
  • Emulate different nodes from the 5G SA core
  • CUPS support for distributed UPF testing
  • Simulate from 1 to millions of users
  • Fully cloud native
  • Configure traffic and QoS parameters for different services
  • Model different UE equipment actions
