Addressing Learning and Test Environments for 2G, 3G and LTE Voice, SMS and DATA in a Micro Network


Being able to deploy a 2G, 3G and LTE Micro Network presents a huge technical advantage over a carrier grade network when training the next generation of mobile professionals or development/research teams who are creating new solutions.

Teachers, Lecturers, Students and Engineers can create a PMN Private Micro Network which allows them full control of the MSC/BSC, MSC/HNB-GW and LTE (EPC MME/PGW/SGW) using appropriate cellular RAN (Radio Access Network) and SIP interconnect to the corporate IP PBX and outside world.

The Micro Networks can be used for teaching, testing and development of Many Things Mobile.

Deployed in any teaching/laboratory environment where Spectrum allows or built within a Faraday Cage creates the network you require.

  • Complete view of entire end to end call path
  • Trace and view logs of call setup/teardown – 2G and 3G
  • SIP integration into Asterisk/Shoretel/Mitel/Avaya and others
  • Emergency call testing
  • DATA evaluation with SGSN/GGSN or SGW/PGW
