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.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
