Other test equipment providers sell LTE capabilities separately, but following our all-inclusive model, we’ve included LTE testing for every BreakingPoint CTM, existing or new. (All it takes is a firmware update.) The combination of such large-scale testing and our all-in-one pricing model drops the cost per UE to under $0.25. That’s right — less than 25 cents.

Contrast that to the $1,000 price tag mentioned above, and it’s not hard to see the impact it makes. The fact that we can now offer our customers the most cost-effective option of simulating millions of concurrent users with real application traffic (plus security attacks and fuzzing, of course) means that they can now validate their LTE network configurations at scale before going live. This is something they simply could not have done before.

    • LTE Testing. What Is Important?!   Applications are the reason for mobility!   LTE driven by user demand to take apps wherever they go!   Existing LTE testing solutions were incomplete and ridiculously cumbersome!   Existing LTE testing price points were far too high for realistic-scale simulation and testing
    • LTE Testing CapabilitiesPerformance, Security, Stability
    • Quick Overview: BreakingPoint FireStorm CTM™!   Simulates 90 million simultaneous users and blended application traffic at live network speeds of up to 120 Gigabits per second from a single three-slot chassis!   Performs SSL Bulk Encryption at 24 Gbps with any cipher!   Measures network latency down to 10-nanosecond resolution!   Universal 10GigE / 1GigE ports!   And more…
    • BreakingPoint LTE Test Lab!   No separate charge or license for LTE!   Customers under maintenance receive automatically!   Pricing around $0.25 USD per UE10
    • LTE Performance and Scalability: The Numbers!   Up to 4,000 eNodeBs!   Up to 3,000,000 UEs –  Gated by # of GTP tunnels / Bearer Channels –  Less when using multiple Bearer Channels!   Up to 3,000,000 GTP tunnels!   Up to 225,000 UE registrations / second (configurable)!   Up to 26 Gb/s throughput over LTE protocols –  Quoted numbers are for a single FireStorm blade and are preliminary, numbers will change upon final release +/-
    • 3 Modes of LTE Operation!   UE / eNodeB or UE / eNodeB + PDN!   UE / eNodeB + MME!   SGW + PDN-GW + PDN
