VIAVI has provided its 5G wireless and optical test solutions to China Mobile. As a preferred vendor, VIAVI has worked closely with the operator since early 2018 to test the performance and capability of the next-generation infrastructure to further the commercial adoption of 5G technology.
During R&D test of wireless network equipment in the 5G Phase I project launched by China Mobile recently, VIAVI supported China Mobile Research Institute (CMRI) in validating 5G base station performance using the VIAVI TM500 Network Tester.
In addition, VIAVI is collaborating with China Mobile to support the development of Slicing Packet Network (SPN) with FlexE interface technology for 5G transport networks. At the recent OptiNet China Conference, the ONT-600 QFLEX Module was used by China Mobile in a 5G multi-vendor bearing network interoperability test, fully demonstrating the technical advantages of SPN technology for high bandwidth, low latency, ultra-high precision synchronization, flexible management and control.
The VIAVI Lab To Field portfolio enables complete 5G lifecycle testing — from wrap-around base station verification and IoT emulation in the lab to validation in the field and beyond for optimum performance and service assurance for 5G networks.
The family of network testing and assurance solutions includes:
- TM500 Network Tester – Considered the standard for lab validation as experienced by end users across multiple cells and different radio access technologies.
- TeraVM 5G Core Emulator – The first mobile core emulator solution compliant with both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) 3GPP standards. It enables complete, end-to-end 5G base station testing and validation, simplifying the development lifecycle of gNodeB (gNB) base stations for a more agile, 3GPP-compliant network.
- CellAdvisor 5G Base Station Analyzer– The next-generation field equipment for mobile service providers worldwide, and the first true 5G base station analyzer to support large-scale deployments.
- NITRO Mobile and NITRO GEO– Built on a real-time intelligence platform for analytics and assurance, NITRO Mobile captures, locates, and analyzes all mobile events across the RF, RAN, xHaul and core. NITRO GEO captures, locates, stores and analyzes data from all subscriber events, giving operators a rich source of app-aware insight to further improve network performance and optimize user experience.
VIAVI will showcase its Lab To Field 5G network testing and assurance portfolio at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai, to be held June 26-28.
