NEMs and Carriers continue their fast track towards deploying the first commercial 5G SA network and the correct adoption of existing and new services over this network becomes critical. Release 18.4 continues Landslide's strategic feature set alignment. In this release, the Service Based Architecture testcases are upgraded to 3GPP R15 June 2019 specifications version.  A new Message Editor is added to the N11 interface thus expanding the testing capabilities of this critical interface. Further enhancements for 'True 5G' testing include: Sessions and Service Continuity (SSC) Mode 2, Slice Discontinuity during Xn Handover, UPF load balancing and support for External Data.
Other key areas of mobile network testing have also been enhanced: Landslide 18.4 adds support for Security Gateway failover on the S1-U interface, Monitor Mode in WiFi Offload Nodal (RF emulation) and the ability to change the codec type during a SIP call.
