5G Network Digital Twin
The 5G Digital Twin is a new approach to testing and assurance providing an emulated, software replica of the 5G physical network that allows for continuous prototyping, testing, assuring and self-optimization of the living network.
It’s Time to Be Pro-Active: Why 5G, SD-WAN and NFV require automated Active Assurance
Containing issues in today’s networks is a never-ending effort—and getting more intense as networks evolve to 5G, SD-WAN, and NFV. As networks are virtualized to support these next-gen services, manual troubleshooting simply can’t keep up. Service providers need new methods for assuring the network. This white paper explores two paths available for assuring the network: traditional passive assurance, relying on metrics collected passively as subscribers use the network. And active assurance, which utilizes highly realistic synthetic user traffic injected into the network at various points to assess performance and quality.
The Simplification of Radio Channel Modeling
Testing is, of course, an essential step in wireless product development, but the correct balance between field and lab testing can be difficult to discern. Field test plans cannot practically capture the wide range conditions that a product will operate in, yet creating realistic radio channel environments in the lab has typically required a high degree of time and skill. Both of these approaches have only gotten more complex with the introduction of 5G radio technologies.
Assuring the Evolution to 5G Poster
We’re about to enter the era of 5G, with blazingly fast speeds, vast coverage density, large area traffic capacity, and super low latency. 5G is more than a step up from 4G; it’s a radical leap that will dramatically improve mobile broadband services and empower the Internet of Things (IoT) by enabling connectivity to billions of global devices.

Introducing the industry’s highest density Flex Ethernet (FlexE) test solution addressing 5G transport, SPN and ITU-T G.mtn
5G Data Performance and Challenges Along the Way
By 2025, it is estimated there will be 1.1 billion mobile 5G connections worldwide. With a large-scale roll-out set to occur much earlier than originally anticipated, the race is on to deliver!
Mobile Video Streaming: Buffering…
Spirent conducted a study on mobile video streaming across different carriers, devices and services in two US cities. The results showed that having the latest smartphone, the most popular streaming service and excellent network coverage doesn't always equate to high quality. This infographic reveals some of what we found, a look at what motivates consumers to look elsewhere, and how Spirent can help you to keep your customers happy.

Lab-as-a-Service for Physical and Virtual Hybrid Testbeds
With the network experiencing the most dramatic technology disruptions, this disruption is coming from the rethinking of how the network is being delivered and managed. Network function virtualization allows the industry to rethink and retool the network from the ground up. However, this is creating many challenges in the areas of service assurance and network testing and verification.
Elements of a Successful LaaS & DevOps Solution Adoption
An automation solution is an answer to a productivity challenge. At one extreme, companies like Amazon will produce a new release on average of every 16 seconds. At the other end of the spectrum, very conservative organizations will generate a publicly consumable release, or GA, every six months. But, the vast majority of organizations find themselves in between.
