Use case:

End-to-end testing for 5G networks

Complete end-to-end test capabilities for 5G networks, covering all core nodes and interfaces. Enable the validation, assurance and emulation of key functions

Test and verification for 5G networks

5G networks bring complexity, which means that end-to-end testing is essential to ensure that services perform as expected and with the requisite scale and performance

Comprehensive end-to-end testing is essential in a multi-vendor 5G environment to ensure network components scale with user adoption and traffic and maintain optimal performance. Evolver is an automated, end-to-end platform that can model different traffic patterns and flows and create unique user content packages that reflect 5G services, service chains and applications.

5G End-to-end Testing

End-to-end testing for 5G networks

Validation, emulation and assurance of key functions

Evolver provides complete end-to-end test capabilities for 5G networks, covering all core nodes and interfaces. It enables the validation, emulation, and assurance of key functions, with simulation of User Equipment (UE) from the gNodeB. Evolver provides a single platform that enables automated test programmes aligned with DevOps CI / CD schedules.

Since network coverage is not uniform, Evolver also includes handover simulation options. This creates a more accurate picture of UE behaviour by modelling interworking with 4G, 3G and other networks when 5G coverage is unavailable. Evolver can also extend to dedicated network slices and low-latency scenarios.

Fully automated and integrated

Test nodes in isolation, perform ‘wraparound’ testing, emulate 5G to 4G service interworking, in live networks and slices

Multiple or individual node testing

Supports N1 / N2 / N3 / N4 / N6 / N 11 interfaces. A single solution for testing multiple use cases and test scenarios

Test UE behaviour for internetworking

Provides handover simulation to reproduce UE behaviour on other networks when 5G coverage is unavailable

Scalable, end-to-end 5G testing

Fully cloud native. Configure traffic and QoS parameters for different services, simulating from 1 to millions of users

Evolver Product Overview

Functional testing, performance testing and active monitoring for mobile networks

A single comprehensive platform

Multiple solutions with centralised control

Evolver provides the flexibility to assure network deployments, updates and live services. Cloud-native and with full automation capabilities, rich reporting and an easy-to-use interface, it ensures the delivery of differentiated services for any network.

Functional testing for service validation

Functional testing can be performed to validate features and updates, and to support CI/CD schedules.

Flexibility allows any scenario to be modelled for proving service capabilities in multi-vendor networks.

Performance testing to demonstrate load and scale

Ensure services can scale in cloud environments and with load from real user agents, modelling real performance.

Evolver scales to emulate service growth, under network conditions, with dynamic capabilities for any scenario.

Active monitoring for QoS-driven, differentiated services

Distributed, active monitoring agents generate real traffic and KPIs, for continuous validation and assurance.

Assure differentiated and specific scenarios for key customers and services, with real-time awareness of service issues.
