“Validation of 3G networks essential to commercial success “
UbiNetics, a world leader in 3G Terminal and Test & Measurement technology, has announced the delivery of the first LG200 Load Generators to major network operators in Europe.
The UbiNetics LG200 Load Generator is a powerful, flexible network test system that allows infrastructure manufacturers and operators to simulate ‘real-world’ network conditions in a lab environment. The system can be configured to perform many different test scenarios, ranging from straightforward load testing to verifying the interoperability between mobiles and the network under test.
“Verifying the performance of complex multi-mode networks is a really challenging task”, said Neil Peniket, Vice President, System Test Products at UbiNetics. “Thorough network testing will be essential to the success of future mobile services, and the ability to run tests in a carefully controlled, deterministic way will help manufacturers and operators to fully understand any issues affecting network reliability and integrity.”
A key feature of the LG200 is the high degree of RF screening provided for the terminals used in the system, coupled with a high performance RF attenuation and combining unit. This allows for precise control over signal levels, allowing realistic testing of key features such as soft handover.
