16.6 Enhancements

Platform Enhancements

2x25G and 2x40G NICs on C100-M4 Test Server

Landslide C100-M4 now supports 2x25G and 2x40G NIC port options:

• L-NIC-73: 2 port 25GbE SFP28 module
• L-NIC-74: 2 port 40GbE QSFP+ module

4x1G NIC for C100-M4 and C50-S4

The new L-NIC-31B (4x1G fiber) and L-NIC-32B (4x1G copper) cards replace the L-NIC-31A and L-NIC-32-A. The L-NIC-31B/-32B cards can be used in the C100-M4 and C50-S4 appliances. These NICs are functionally identical to the older “A” versions and will provide the same (or better) performance.

Throughput Increase for High Performance Virtual Test Server

16.6 delivers a 25% increase in traffic throughput for Landslide Virtual Test Servers running with the High Performance license.

Fireball High Performance Data

16.6 is the fifth release of Landslide’s new High-Performance Data mode which is available on both physical and virtual Test Servers. This release adds support for HTTPS. Want to combine voice and video RTP with HTTP or HTTPS data? And transmit it all simultaneously from the same UE? And transmit at high data rates? It’s no problem with Landslide!

Feature Enhancements

5G Evolution

Landslide supports the 3GPP Options 3/3a/3x emulating UEs dual-connected to a 4G eNB and 5G gNB to test the 4G EPC. 5G use cases now include:

  • Mobility between dual-connected 5G+4G to 4G
  • Fixed Wireless Access with data rates of up to 10Gbps per UE

IPsec Tunnels

Mobile network densification with Small Cells and Wi-Fi plus the increased adoption of VoLTE are driving the demand for IPsec connections. The 16.6 release provides a six-fold increase in the number of IPsec connections on the C100-M4 Test Server.
