Realistic Wireless and Wireline Converged Testing

The W2CM-10GbE is designed to meet the challenging needs of testing fixed-mobile converged networks and services like wireless (2G/3G/LTE), IMS, VoLTE and VoIP. It is specially designed for signaling and user-plane testing of network elements such as the P-GW, S-GW, eNodeB, SBC, CSCFs, BGF, HSS and IMS application servers.

It utilizes advanced CPU technology to deliver the high performance required for testing large scale networks, and it offers state-of-the-art FPGA technology for generating and analyzing, at line rate, user-plane sessions such as voice, video and data.

Unmatched Signaling and Media Capacity and Performance

With EXFO’s QualityAssurer, the W2CM-10GbE module emulates tens of millions of subscribers, generating real-world traffic toward LTE, IMS and VoIP networks. It emulates subscribers initiating voice/video calls, browsing websites, downloading files, checking e-mails, as well as streaming audio and video content. Using custom-designed FPGAs, the W2CM-10GbE module provides accurate time-based statistics, with a 10 ns time-stamp resolution, to gauge the quality of service provided to subscribers.

The hardware-based generation and analysis engine can generate and analyze tens of thousands of transactions per second, allowing small to very-large-scale network deployment testing. By emulating network elements such as the eNodeB, P-GW, S-GW, MME and CSCFs, W2CM-10GbE can wrap around any network element or network segment to test different network scenarios. It can also be used in the optimization of various deployment scenarios and architectures (e.g., roaming, fixed, collapsed and decomposed architecture), allowing network service providers (NSPs) and network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) to design optimal networks that exceed their customers’ expectations.

The low cost and the use of unlicensed spectrum has made carrier-grade Wi-Fi of strategic importance to many mobile network operators (MNOs).

MNOs view it as a means to expand service coverage with very low CAPEX and OPEX. In this context, it is imperative to understand the various challenges of this integration and of ensuring optimal performance to deliver seamless mobility and enhanced quality of experience to subscribers.
