Spirent Landslide 17.2 Release Available For Download


Landslide 17.2 is now available for download on the Spirent customer support website.

As the 3GPP R15 specifications become more stable, NEMs and Carriers are conducting more Proof of Concept (PoC) tests to evaluate every aspect of this new network architecture. To aid this tremendous effort, release 17.2 continues Landslide’s strategic feature set alignment by introducing enhancements for ‘True 5G’ testing. In addition to the existing AMF and SMF testing capabilities, Landslide now enables critical core network testing areas such as mobility performance in handoffs between gNBs as well as User Plane Function design via a new UPF Nodal test case.  Furthermore, Landslide 17.2 features the first in market ‘Service Node’ test cases and node emulators to help customers validate the dimensioning and configuration of 5G’s AuSF, UDM, NNRF and PCF.
Finally, Landslide 17.2 continues to expand in key mobile network testing areas such as IMS' Zh interface and newly popular technologies like Secure Radius (RADSEC), by providing high-scale test cases and node emulators.

True 5G Test Cases
R17.2 is the second Landslide release with True 5G core test cases. The use cases include: 
  • Testing the 5G data plane only (UPF Nodal)
  • Xn Handover Mobility Scenarios
  • Multiple gNB Emulation
  • UDM Node Testing and Emulation
  • PCF Node Testing and Emulation
  • AUSF Node Testing and Emulation
  • NRF Emulation
More 5G core functionality plus additional node testing and emulation will be added continuously in the upcoming releases. 
5G NSA Enhancements
17.2 continues enhancing Landslide's 5G NSA testing capabilities:
  • Support for 5G gNB Performance Reports
  • Fireball support for 5G NSA to 4G handover

Secure RADIUS Authentication
RADSEC or Secure Radius has quickly become an important feature for Radius deployment across multiple industries. Landslide adds support for both high-scale testing a RADSEC server and emulating a RADSEC AAA server.

Landslide continues its expansion in direct IMS/Voice over IP testing, while maintaining the unparalleled voice and video over LTE testing capabilities. Landslide 17.2 introduces:
  • MC-PTT Enhancements
  • Zh interface testing and emulation for Ua + Ub authentication
Generic Impairment Node for Increased Testbed Realism
A generic IP-based impairment node has been created within Landslide to do basic impairments such as delaying and dropping packets for failure test cases.
VisionWorks Handset Test Agent Features
A variety of VisionWorks live network use cases have been added to Landslide using an Android handset and an E10:
  • Testing for black-listed websites for parental control on handsets
  • Testing simultaneous VoLTE and data scenarios
  • Testing WPS for first responders
  • Testing Visual Voicemail
