Radisys Picks Polaris Emulators
LEXINGTON, Mass. -- Polaris Networks, a global solutions provider for wireless technologies, announced today that Radisys®, a leading provider of embedded wireless infrastructure solutions, has selected the Polaris LTE EPC Emulators to test the Radisys small cell solution for functionality and performance.
Radisys’ Trillium® TOTALeNodeB™ is the next generation Trillium LTE small cell solution that delivers an integrated small cell software implementation which is deployable off-the-shelf. Trillium TOTALeNodeB is an award-winning solution and has been adopted by many base station vendors for their small cell development.
The EPC Emulators from Polaris Networks provide comprehensive means of testing LTE eNodeB protocol stack software. The Emulator tools are capable of characterizing live network traffic conditions in a lab environment. This is especially useful when LTE equipment needs to be validated for both functional and performance requirements before it is deployed in live LTE networks. The Polaris EPC Emulator can be used with test and commercial UEs from all major vendors.
The two companies engaged in an extensive interoperability test between Radisys’ Trillium TOTALeNodeB LTE Small Cell software and Polaris’ LTE EPC Emulator. The purpose of this IOT was to verify connections between the Radisys eNodeB and Polaris EPC and validate eNodeB functions on the S1 interfaces. After the successful completion of the IOT, Radisys decided to adopt the Polaris Emulators for its in-house lab testing of the Trillium eNodeB software. Radisys is using the EPC Emulator to simulate live network scenarios in its lab based on the network operations that are being reported by Radisys’ customers from field testing of LTE small cells.
“It was important to us as we deploy our Trillium TOTALeNodeB software around the world that we continue to choose best-of-breed partners that complement our leadership in LTE,” said Todd Mersch, Product Line Management Director, Radisys. “This partnership is a great example of two companies working together to deliver a compelling LTE small cell solution. By leveraging Polaris Networks’ test solution to recreate our customers’ network environments, we can ensure that we are delivering the functionality and performance that they need.”
