Protocol Details

The 5G Network Emulator provides an all-in-one, cost-effective and ultra-portable 5G network for demonstration, testing and training purposes. It can emulate 5G core network nodes and generate realistic traffic between network devices by supporting the following features:
  • Emulates some or all of core network, exposing all internal interfaces
  • Conformance tests available for each interface
  • Emulators available per subsystem
  • OTA connection available for UEs and IoT devices
  • True stateful simulation
  • Handover support on X2 and S1
  • Signaling request/response messages for call handling, mobility management, authentication, QoS
  • Report on media received, call connect time, call duration, jitter, packet loss
  • Generate valid and invalid/negative messages and call-scenarios (fully editable scenarios)
  • Supports sending invalid messages including malformed, dropped, and misordered packets
  • Check parameters in messages from SUT and flag errors
  • 3GPP-compliant interfaces

Network Security Testing

Valid8's cutting-edge technology delivers the tools necessary to validate new and emerging telecom products and software applications. Offering the broadest range of supported protocols and most cost-effective stress, feature, negative test and device emulation solutions in the industry the toolset can also be used to validate Network Security...

• Tools to generate realistic, stateful traffic to help detect vulnerabilities

• Pre-canned conformance test suites to verify the network protocol stack implementations are correct and protected

• Complements Denial Of Service (DOS) tools

• Lab or cloud based solutions to run traffic generation services from outside an organisation's own network

• Ability to spoof MAC/IP and geographic location of where the simulated data comes from

• Stress testing, loading past the specified limit of the device under test (DUT) to see where it breaks

• Ability to create and test with invalid / unusual flows / messages

• Same test environment and language for many protocols and domains

• Easily tied into automated environments for regression testing etc

• Benchmarking – no of calls and call statistics etc

• Simulate malicious phones and networks
