End-to-end (E2E) network testing is critical for service providers. Here, we look at why E2E network testing is important, as telcos look to introduce Open RAN architectures into their networks. We’ll examine what some of the common problems are and offer a solution to service providers’ testing times.

E2E testing means service providers can replicate real end-user scenarios to ensure that their network can withstand high demand. With 5G deployment gathering momentum, they must ensure that networks can concurrently support the number and variety of use cases technology will enable. They’re not just testing to deliver superior services for subscribers – they’re bound by service level agreements and KPIs which must be met to realize ROI on the network.

What does E2E network testing involve? It requires service providers to check hardware and software components and how they work within the wider network infrastructure. It involves validating network performance as experienced by end-users, across multiple cells and different radio access technologies, from RAN to core, including emerging cloud-based architectures. The diversity of E2E testing can reduce costs in finding and troubleshooting issues and helps operators deploy – and monetize – new products and services.
