Spirent Communications announced that its Spirent Landslide now offers the ability to test mobile infrastructure's readiness for all IP services such as Voice over LTE (VoLTE) video calling and multi player mobile gaming.
Spirent Landslide is claimed to be the only industry solution that can test VoLTE performance and scalability at the intersection of the mobile core and IMS cloud. The solution is able to test the network's ability to support data traffic and high-bandwidth/low latency applications including FaceTime, mobile gaming and Twitter.
It combines control plane testing with application data to provide insights into policy control procedures, charging and content awareness.
"Operators have an increasing need to test VoLTE capabilities, and when all traffic is eventually sent over IP networks, they will need to make the right policy, as well as QoE and QoS, decisions to satisfy end users," said Ross Cassan, director of product marketing at Spirent Communications. "Mobile voice services are a significant revenue source and VoLTE is poised to bring both higher call quality and expanded video capabilities. Spirent Landslide stands out from competitors because it offers a seamless method to test both the mobile control plane and stateful data performance at the same time."
