Dallas -- Mobile Metrics announced the forthcoming availability of an advanced traffic simulation system specifically designed for testing WiMAX in the Access Service Network (ASN) and the Connectivity Service Network (CSN). The Torrent 7100 WiMAX Test System will feature the same flexibility, realism, and automation capabilities for which the Torrent series is known, but will be focused exclusively on WiMAX.
"WiMAX is an important and rapidly developing technology," said Asa Atallah, CEO of Mobile Metrics, Inc. "One of our goals is to further accelerate its deployment and commercial application with our Torrent 7100 test system. In particular, we would like to help equipment manufacturers focus more exclusively on their core business of system development, and free them from having to also develop associated in-house tools."
With the Torrent 7100, equipment manufacturers and operators and can run suites of parallel, highly realistic traffic profiles which can programmatically interact with the system under test via telnet or ssh. For example, test cases can automatically monitor the system under test for memory leaks or error logs.
The Torrent 7100 realistically simulates a wide variety of protocols such as HTTP, WAP, MMS, PTT, SIP, RTCP, RTP, FTP, SMTP, POP3, ICMP, and DNS. Test results are accurately characterized with high-resolution histograms and over 450 hierarchically organized statistics. The new Torrent 7100 will also provide users with the same rich test suites and advanced mobile simulation found its predecessor, the Torrent 5100 GTS.
