“Until now, iTelaSoft’s XG platform was capable of testing and monitoring 2G, 3G, 4G, and Narrowband cellular networks. Hereinafter, with the addition of latest 5G NR capabilities, our XG Test Platform becomes one of the most convenient all-in-one networking testing tools on the market, since it now allows testing and monitoring the complete range of cellular technologies”, Co-Founder & CEO of iTelaSoft Indaka Raigama mentioned.

From the perspective of telecommunications companies, which are either planning or already deploying 5G infrastructure, the ability to test high-bandwidth, low-latency data transmissions in a controlled lab environment or at a production site represents a huge advantage. Thanks to the XG platform from iTelaSoft they can efficiently overcome some of the most common 5G implementation challenges such as,

  • Performing comprehensive 5G signal reliability tests
  • Easing the validation of MIMO and beamforming configurations
  • Testing 5G speed performance
  • Performing 5G network simulations in controlled laboratory conditions, using XGP advanced testing and monitoring features to
    assist technicians in identifying anomalies
  • 5G network availability testing and monitoring

The recent update of the XG platform with next-generation 5G capabilities is further proof of the commitment of the iTelaSoft technical team to keep this platform at the forefront of network monitoring and testing tools. Amidst many challenges imposed during the COVID era, iTelaSoft R&D team was able to design and manufacture the new device adding 5G capability in record time. The devices was tested in 5G deployments in Sri Lanka, Spain and Germany in the pilot stage. iTelaSoft has now made the general availability of the 5G testing and monitoring to their customers.

The IoT innovations are spear headed by a team of young engineers lead by IoT Head, Chrishmal Fernando. “The platform is not limited to 5G. Over the last four years, XG Test Platform covered a series of capabilities from validating Voice, IP & Non-IP Messaging, Broadband and Narrowband Data in cellular networks. Our platform consists of radio test equipment and a distributed test framework software that allows network technicians and test professionals to be productive by drastically reducing manual testing involved in setting up a cell. Not only for testing, we have employed our platform for ongoing monitoring of cellular services and applications in many occasions”, Mr. Fernando added.
