U1 LTE OTA Module for E10
Like your favorite millennial, Landslide has cut the cord! With the new U1 module Landslide now supports LTE Over-the-Air tests. The module emulates a single LTE UE and supports a wide range of LTE bands. Up to four U1s can be controlled by the Landslide E10 and conveniently snap into the new top plate. This new functionality enables true end-to-end test scenarios as well as isolation of the eNodeB
SIM Server Support
Landslide started working with real SIM cards in 15.0, but since then customers have been asking for more SIMs! 16.0 gives these customers over 400 reasons to upgrade. Landslide MME Nodal test case can now use a local or remote SIM server for individual UE authentication to the network. Up to 416 physical SIMs can be mapped to the Landslide emulated UEs
All over the globe, carriers are enhancing their business-class mobile solutions to take advantage of new IoT modes. Landslide now supports using the Diameter protocol to transfer NB-IoT and CAT-M non-IP data messages and can now emulate an SCEF node and its Diameter interfaces to the MME and an HSS.
Content Caching Testing
Including a content caching function as part of a mobile gateway or as a function in a service chain is becoming common place in mobile networks. This release adds the ability to serve JPEG files to test these functions.
