Features & Benefits
- GSM Monitoring, Simulation and Emulation
- SMS Monitoring and Simulation
- WAP Monitoring
- Emulation of Network Elements
- Testing of GSM Base Station Subsystem (BSS)
- Testing of GSM Network Switching Subsystem (NSS)
The Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) is related to the 2nd Generation (2G) of Mobile Networks. From its rollout at the beginning of the 90s, GSM has become a worldwide accepted standard for digital mobile communication and is preferred for speech and narrowband tele services (i.e. SMS or WAP).
Tektronix offers the following software packages for the mobile network GSM for K1297 and K1205 Protocol Testers. With the software, functions of the GSM network elements Base Station Subsystem (BSS) and Network Switching Subsystem (NSS) and their interaction can be tested:
- GSM Monitoring
- GSM Monitoring/Simulation/Emulation
- SMS Monitoring
- SMS Monitoring/Simulation
- WAP Monitoring
- Emulation of Network Elements MSC and BSS
- Emulation of Network Element SCP
- Abis Post-processing Software Tool
Tektronix now offers a complete range of monitoring applications for GSM protocols for the Subnetworks BSS and NSS on the K1205 and K1297-G20 and in addition for K1297-G20 the capability to simulate GSM protocols by using MBS to emulate important parts of network elements such as MSC, BSS, HLR, VLR and SCP. 2G protocol packages can be combined with all transport protocol packages (SS#7, IP, ATM).
Prerequisite for GSM software packages is the related transport protocol SCCP (7PK12xx-xTCxx). Please refer to Transport, ISUP, Intelligent Network product information at http://www.tektronix.com/mobile.
The transport SCCP protocol packages 7PK1221-7TCxx offer the additional feature TCAP Application Database. Database access of TCAP based protocols (i.e. MAP, CAP) with support of the programming tool “Message Sequence Chart” can be realized.
