Spirent works with AWS to provide automated 5G network testing, 5G


Frederick, Maryland. – – Spirent Communications plc (LSE: SPT) today announced a collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide automated 5G testing capabilities to communications service providers (CSPs) building 5G networks on AWS. Spirent’s market-first Landslide 5GC automation package is designed to help carriers quickly deploy 5G networks on AWS, significantly reducing operational costs, time, and resources compared to manual testing.

By combining AWS’s continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI / CD) pipeline with Spirent’s vendor-independent 5G testing capabilities, CSP objectively provides mobile network capabilities and services across a wide range of requirements, including compliance. , You will be able to verify quickly and continuously. Capacity and performance dimensions. The integrated solution is aimed at mobile carriers who want to accelerate the delivery of 5G services on AWS.

Doug Roberts, General Manager of Spirent’s Lifecycle Services Assurance Business, said: “The competition for new 5G technology continues, but it is so complex and new that we have established the critical 5G core testing and validation needed for the success of these complex networks and services. There is a real lack of expertise and resources to provide. To the market. ”

With the introduction of 5G network validation on AWS with Spirent’s Landslide 5GC automation package, operators can easily take advantage of fully integrated 5G test automation capabilities to accelerate both 5G network capabilities and service deployment and updates. Can be tested and verified. It provides a continuous delivery framework using AWS CodePipeline and its security and observer best practices and is available in all AWS Regions. This solution is completely isolated, highly extensible, and supports many parallel tests, while enabling some types of network tests that can be automatically triggered as part of the 5G network application pipeline. ..

“Manually establishing such complex test requirements is a very time-consuming process, usually months,” says Roberts. “Thanks to the new collaboration with AWS, service providers can leverage Spirent’s 5G expertise and proven testing techniques to easily integrate automated 5G testing and validation into AWS for months. You can test with confidence, significantly reduce time to market, and analysis shows that you can achieve significant cost savings compared to traditional manual testing methods. It is shown. ”

CSPs can trigger tests and complete validation without the need for additional manual testing or the development of their own test suite. You can reduce the risk of service failures by testing multi-vendor 5G core elements and accelerate test automation without having to build from scratch.
