Spirent Landslide 18.2 Release Available For Download


Landslide 18.2 is now available for download on the Spirent customer support website.

The race to deploy 5G standalone networks is on for Carriers and their eco-system providers.  A critical piece of the 5G puzzle isn’t 5G at all, it’s what happens when customers move out of 5G coverage.  Ensuring seamless mobility both 5G to 5G and 5G to 4G and back to 5G is critical for service continuity and customer experience.
Landslide release 18.2 completes the 5G to 4G and back to 5G cycle after an EPS Fallback with support of the N26 interface.  Key emergency services functions are also added. The platform team has also been hard at work adding support for another Landslide first, the 100GbE with an all-new 2-port module for the C100-M4.
Finally, Landslide 18.2 continues to expand its feature set in other key areas of mobile network testing. These enhancements include: MCPTT enhancements, TUAK Authentication algorithm and persistent connections for Fireball TCP & HTTP data.
