VIAVI Solutions’ TM500 Network Tester and TeraVM 5G Core Emulator have been chosen by Samsung Electronics to validate 5G network equipment performance.
The collaboration marks the first wrap-around testing of 5G stand-alone (SA) base station equipment, and emulating real-world conditions enables an end-to-end test of the radio access network (RAN), thereby ensuring performance and reliability in the field.
“TM500 is a scalable test system for validating network performance as experienced by end users, is considered the standard in its class, and is in use with almost every base station manufacturer in the industry”, noted VIAVI
The Updated Key Features of the Device Include:
- uplink MIMO on two layers
- downlink 8CC CA
- MIMO support
- 4CC uplink and downlink carrier aggregation at 120 kHz and 240 kHz
- mmWave support
- support for large numbers of UEs on 5G in both Non-Standalone (NSA) and Standalone (SA) modes
Wonil Roh, Vice President and Head of Technology Strategy Group, Samsung Networks Business, commented, “Through close collaboration with eco partners like VIAVI, and leveraging our R&D expertise, Samsung will continue accelerating innovation in 5G commercial services.”
