    Spirent who are globally leaders in Testing Networks & Communications Services are heavily engaged in 5G activities with commercial companies, academic and research institutions. Our solutions are based on three pillars:  We are testing ( network elements, protocols, etc), validate( migration to virtualization, individual and e2e services) and emulate ( individual or all network element, with the ability to build an Digital Twin of an real 5G network). From functional to performance. For 5G, we can address any point in the architecture( 5G UE, 5Gcell, 5GCore,..). As such, we are always open for engagements and discussions in this area.


    One of our success stories was working with The Innovation Centre at The University of Surrey , we helped them simulate up to one million 5G users, Our Solution enabled researchers and partners to test the performance of new 5G applications based on latency, bandwidth, quality of experience, signaling and various traffic in sliceable and virtualized networks -
