China Mobile is using Spirent's (SPM) Landslide Performance Analysis System to test 3G Packet Core Network equipment, including Serving GPRS Support Nodes (SGSN) and GPRS Gateway Support Nodes (GGSN).
These devices are critical elements for 3G network architectures and Landslide will be used to ensure top network performance.
The China Mobile Communications Research Institute says that these trials are significant to China Mobile. The China Mobile Communications Research Institute has been at the technological forefront of research for various new technologies and applications and has spent the last few years preparing technologies for the commercial use of the 3G network.
Spirent's Landslide Performance Analysis System provides market leading test capabilities for all aspects of today's 3G Packet Switched Core Networks.
"Spirent is very pleased to cooperate with China Mobile on their 3G testing requirements. Landslide supplies China Mobile with world leading and innovative wireless test methodology to ensure that 3G networks will scale as millions of subscribers sign up," said Joe Zeto, director, product marketing at Spirent Communications. "In addition, it will help guarantee that subscribers have the best and most reliable service possible."
