IoT applications testing
The LTE LabKit and the Hosted Core are designed to provide a complete local IoT application testing environment in urban or rural areas. As IoT and M2M applications are becoming increasingly present in public and personal use, security and reliability are crucial.
Local IoT testing
Improved IoT applications performance
IoT depends on connectivity, so cellular service is a prerequisite for IoT and M2M testing.
The Hosted Core was created so that developers, vendors, and operators can conduct advanced IoT testing operations using the complete functionality of a LTE or GSM/GPRS network. It acts as a complete core network and includes including EPC, IMS and MSC/VLR, HSS/HLR and SMSC.
Utilizing the Hosted Core with one or more LabKit units, YateBTS users can try out a complete LTE and GSM/GPRS mobile network serving their testing needs. Multiple LabKits can be used to simulate multi-cell networks.
A small-scale mobile network using the Hosted Core and the LabKit is suitable for testing IoT and dramatically reduces costs related to test procedures. Operators and developers can set up a complete environment in the cloud, and measure the performance of IoT applications before delivering them to end users.
