Test, validate and assure 5G core nodes with cloud-native solutions, optimised for agile, DevOps delivery processes
The new 5G core brings the opportunity to deploy true, multi-vendor solutions, combined with cloud-native design and elastic scalability, and new functions, like network slicing
Evolver provides 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, as well as active monitoring and assurance with software agents in live networks.
Flexible, agile service validation and active monitoring
End-to-end testing is essential, to ensure that services perform as expected and at scale, for end-customers as well as B2B partners. Evolver is a single platform with the flexibility to select different content and KPI measures with differentiated QoS, across configurable scenarios, via automated test programmes, aligned with your DevOps CI / CD schedules.
Since network coverage is not uniform, Evolver includes handover simulation options. This creates 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. Evolver can also extend to dedicated network slices and low-latency, differentiated service scenarios.
