I am thankful to our sales partner in Korea, Tricomtek Co. Ltd., for their unending efforts in making Polaris’ LTE test tools the test tools of choice among Korean base station vendors. We are delighted with the kind of response that our LTE test solutions have received in the Korean market and we look forward to more such opportunities in the future.”

The LTE Emulator test tools from Polaris Networks are free-running implementations that provide closest to live-network simulation of LTE infrastructure equipment in a lab environment. Of these, the MME, SGW and PGW Emulators provide a complete EPC simulation that software vendors and base station manufacturers use for testing their LTE eNodeB development. The Emulators for EPC includes built-in HSS and PCRF functions. It has added support for features like ‘Closed Subscriber Group’ (CSG), Over-the-air provisioning, which are specifically useful for testing LTE small cells or Home eNodeBs.

Much of the popularity of the Polaris LTE test solutions in the Korean market can be attributed to the extensive support provided by Seoul-based Tricomtek Co. Ltd.
