SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Spirent Communications, the leader in testing networks, services and devices, announced today that China Mobile’s research division, China Mobile Research Institute, selected Spirent Landslide to verify the performance of its Evolved Packet Core (EPC) network. This selection follows China Mobile’s purchase of Spirent Landslide to test its 3G packet core.

Spirent Landslide will enable China Mobile to model user behavior and create traffic over the control and data planes by emulating real-world calls from millions of smartphones. The solution was selected to test the performance of the EPC, including MME (Mobility Management Entity), SGW (Serving Gateway), PGW (Packet Data Node Gateway) and PCRF (Policy and Charging Rules Function).

“Spirent Landslide’s integrated test cases and GUI-based automation allow engineers to quickly model carrier specific subscriber behavior at extreme scale,” said Ross Cassan, Director of Product Marketing at Spirent Communications. “Spirent Landslide allows China Mobile to ensure that the mobile core network delivers a high quality of service, will accommodate growth in new subscribers and traffic, and resolves issues in their multi-vendor ecosystem.”

Spirent Landslide is the only solution in the industry which is able to emulate the complex behavior of today’s smartphone subscribers. The solution enables carriers to generate BHCA (Busy Hour Call Attempt) models, including VoLTE mobility scenarios, LTE to 3G to Wi-Fi handovers, and mobile application traffic, helping them reduce the risk of network outages and offer a better user experience.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
