The newly released Mobile Metrics V5100 test solution provides unprecedented realism, flexibility, and automation capabilities for core network testing.

Mobile Metrics announced the release of an advanced traffic simulation system specifically designed for testing GGSNs in the GPRS/UMTS core network. The V5100 system features numerous industry leading features including unmatched signaling and data performance, and automation capabilities.

"We're pleased to be able to offer the kind of comprehensive solution provided by the V5100", said Asa Atallah, CEO of Mobile Metrics Inc. "Traditionally, the options for testing many specialized wireless nodes such as the GGSN have been limited and have lacked automation capabilities."

With the V5100 system, operators and equipment manufacturers can run suites of parallel, highly realistic traffic profiles which can programmatically interact with the system under test via telnet or ssh. For example, test cases can automatically monitor the system under test for memory leaks or error logs.

Because the system realistically simulates a wide variety of protocols such as HTTP, WAP, MMS, PTT, FTP, SMTP, POP3, ICMP, and DNS the end subscriber's experience can accurately be characterized with high-resolution histograms, and over 450 hierarchically organized statistics.
