What tests have already been carried out?
Having access to all trace and debugging data in our own 5G network (we have our own locally operated stand-alone 5G core) allows us to offer detailed insights and root cause analysis of detected errors to optimize systems and products (development tests). Functionality tests are about verifying a certain function, both end-to-end as well in front of testers or reference systems. In the fields of communication and also positioning, it’s possible to test the performance of system components or complete solutions. Among other things, the 3D positioning system is available as a reference.
Interoperability tests are also very important. We use these to test the compatibility of products or prototypes, especially with an open RAN 5G network. Then there are stability and long-term tests, which are about automatically repeating a predefined sequence of different scenarios a set number of times. Mobility tests can be conducted inside the facility or outdoors. We can also run cell edge scenarios to assess the behavior on the edge of the wireless coverage area.
