OULU, Finland -- NetHawk product portfolio is growing with a complete protocol testing solution for mobile WiMAX. Time spent on network equipment development and trouble shooting can drastically be reduced thanks to advanced applications available in NetHawk frame work. NetHawk EAST offers a state-of-the-art platform for functional, conformance and load testing. NetHawk M5 with powerful Session Tracing and graphical statistics enables easy analysis of WiMAX traffic. NetHawk solution for mobile WiMAX will be launched in 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona.

NetHawk testing solution for WiMAX based on NetHawk EAST simulator and NetHawk M5 analyser helps equipment manufacturers and operators to bring WiMAX from labs to live networks. Both NetHawk M5 and NetHawk EAST can easily be configured for simultaneous testing of WiMAX and other telecommunication technologies.

NetHawk EAST offers all-in-one solution for mobile WiMAX equipment development and testing. NetHawk WiMAX Tester is targeted for mobile WiMAX Base Station testing at R6 interface and ASN Gateway testing. It supports WiMAX functional and load testing specified by WiMAX Forum. The graphical configuration tool and the powerful on-line monitoring based on NetHawk M5 in addition to the test case development and execution tools make this product an excellent choice for WiMAX development.

NetHawk M5 allows reliable testing thanks to a state-of-the-art Session Tracing with correlation between WiMAX interfaces and a possibility to drill down to detailed decoding, graphical presentation of Key Performance Indicators (KPI) and other traffic statistics. Quality-of-Service (QoS) can be verified with delay, throughput and jitter measurements. In addition to a detailed decoding of all protocols specified by WiMAX Forum, NetHawk M5 also offers support for vendor specific protocols. All WiMAX interfaces between Base Stations, ASN and CSN Gateways (R2, R3, R4, R5, R6) can be monitored with NetHawk M5.
