Wireless Network Testing


With the rapid growth of subscribers, devices and services, Mobile Operators are being driven to significantly invest in their networks to allow for prompt innovation and greater customer value. Even with all these investments, they face many business and technical challenges to deploy and manage their live network services. Rigorous testing must be done not just on the network elements in the lab, but at each stage of the network lifecycle, right through to the live network.

Network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) and network service providers (NSPs) need to verify adherence to specs, functionality, capacity, interoperability, quality of experience (QoE) and quality of service (QoS).

Pre Deployment Lab Testing

Simulation tools are needed to verify the next generation services such as VoLTE and WebRTC to deliver the expected performance in the labs before deployment. EXFO ensures this by simulating real world traffic profile scenarios in the labs and proactively finding potential failures. As a result it enables our customers to deploy these services in live networks with greater confidence.

Live Network Troubleshooting

Live network troubleshooting involves the capture and analysis of traffic from the various interfaces of many mobile network elements. Testing teams need a clear view of the status of the traffic between these elements to find and fix network errors fast. Protocol analyzers provide signal- and user-plane analysis applications, which take the captured data, analyze it and deliver clear graphical representations of the traffic. This helps NEMs and NSPs save testing time and enables them to deliver the best quality of service for their end customers.

EXFO provides all the tools you need to ensure the integrity of your mobile network, from the lab to the live network.
