Viavi TMLite network tester

Tuesday, 29 June, 2021


Viavi has released TMLite, a streamlined version of its TM500 network tester.

The tester enables vendors to identify software errors by deploying test tools earlier in the development cycle. It also enables smaller vendors to gain access to the TM500 family with this compact version, by delivering features, software environment and user experience consistent with the TM500.

In order to maximise 5G coverage, service providers will need to densify their networks, increasing the diversity of radio types and suppliers. Smaller scale manufacturers may not require the large number of carriers and high-capacity testing typical in traditional base station validation, but they still need early access to 3GPP features, as well as network parameters used by other manufacturers to confirm interoperability.

The tester enables functional, system and performance testing for the latest 5G standalone features, including: FR1, FR2, FDD, TDD, and up to 4x4 MIMO; plus the RF, baseband and higher layer processing for one 5G NR carrier. All on a single COTS server.
