Polystar introduces fully virtualised version of VoLTE/LTE test solution

Telecom analytics firm Polystar has launched a new, fully virtualised version of its award-winning VoLTE and LTE test solution, Solver, the company said.

With momentum gathering behind network function virtualisation (NFV), CSPs are also keen to ensure that associated solutions in their operational, test and R&D environments follow pace. The new, virtualised Solver delivers on this vision and will help CSPs meet CAPEX goals while leveraging a common IT infrastructure.

Solver is a high-performance load generation, stress and feature testing solution for LTE and VoLTE services, as well as legacy and NGN fixed and mobile networks. Solver can be deployed both as a virtual and a physical device, making it possible to operate in existing IT infrastructure, side by side with NFV deployments of the mobile core network. This means that CSPs can maximise their return on existing and new infrastructure investments, and simplify maintenance.

The virtualised Solver is delivered as software, dramatically reducing delivery times to CSPs. This also allows remote installation to be facilitated for system extension. For example, if more capacity is required, it can simply be enabled by extending user licenses. Systems based on legacy or proprietary hardware cannot be extended in this manner.

Polystar enables communications service providers to increase efficiency in CEM, Big Data Analytics, Service Assurance, Network Monitoring and High Performance Testing. Since its foundation in Stockholm in 1983, it has grown to serve customers in more thn 50 countries.
