The LTE MME Functional Tester provides a wrap-around test solution for the Mobile Management Entity by emulating all the LTE network elements surrounding the MME (System Under Test). The MME Functional Tester emulates an LTE eNodeB and other Core Network entities such as the S-GW and SGSN. It tests the S1-MME, S11, S10, S3, S6a, S13 and SBc interfaces of the MME.
The MME Functional Tester tests the correctness of an implementation of LTE Mobile Management Entity in accordance with 3GPP TS 36.413 (S1 Application Protocol), TS 24.301 (NAS), TS 29.274 (GTPv2-C) and other relevant Release 8, Release 9 and Release 10 standards.
Polaris Networks has defined the functional test cases for MME testing. These test cases cover all MME procedures, including UE Attach, Detach, Handover, Paging, Tracking Area Updates, etc.
