S-CORE for Research and Development
E-UTRA & EPC Protocol Stack Development
R&D teams designing and testing complex protocols such as E-UTRA and
the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) require a test system with a high degree
of flexibility with the ability to get down to the bit level control of the
network signalling.
The S-CORE delivers on this requirement with an easy-to-use GUI
environment and comprehensive selection of productivity tools with an
extensive API, enabling protocol stack developers the option to script
complex Multi-RAT and InterBand network scenarios within a repetitive
lab based environment, rich in diagnostic logs and traces.
Evolved Universal Terrestrial Radio Access
The S-CORE test platform supports and tracks 3GPP standards evolution
closely to enable engineering teams to test against the latest feature sets.

S-CORE Connect
A Faster Path to Operator Acceptance
The S-CORE Connect revolutionises the testing of IMS based Services
and Multi-Media by accurately emulating the entire network from the
RF & Modem layers through to the Packet & IMS Core and Application
Servers, all located in a standalone test solution with an easy-to-use
test environment, rich in diagnostic traces and logs.
S-CORE Connect diagnostic information
Protocol development demands accuracy, clear and intuitive logging
and decoding at every layer through the devices signalling stack.
The S-CORE Connect saves your engineers time and effort by providing
signalling logs and traces for every layer, from the baseband to the
app||cat|on |ayer. ¬|gh||ght|ng unexpected messag|ng and prov|d|ng
bit level decoding of all signalling sent and received. This enables a
faster turnaround of interoperability issues.
S-CORE decodes of an RRC message using ASN1 notation, IMS
registration showing decoded SIP messaging, XML trace of a
Device Management session.
