Comprehensive Test System Validates LTE Small Cells
IxCatapult, Ixia’s test system, validates Long-Term Evolution (LTE) small-cell systems and ensures high performance, resiliency, and quality of LTE femtocells, picocells, and microcells. Employing the IxCatapult product line, the system evaluates all aspects of small quality and performance. These include functional, negative, and performance testing of femto, pico, and micro home eNodeBs, wraparound testing of small cells by emulating user equipment and the wireless core network, testing of all protocol layers from the physical layer (PHY) to the upper layer signaling, comprehensive media emulation, and LTE Advanced ready. Via real-world mobile subscriber modeling, the system also performs service quality validation and measures subscriber quality of experience.
