The NGN Test Lab is equipped for analyzing communication systems and evaluating and enhancing customer-specific solutions ranging from local communication networks to cloud-based services. Apart from examining the transmission protocol and system parameters, the tests also evalute various security aspects.
One particular focus of the lab’s current activities involves evaluating communication and collaboration systems in order to verify conformity to standards, interoperability and data transmission security and integrity. Another key element is the integration of mobile end user devices into local communication systems.
A reliable communication platform is essential for many applications. In many regions of the world however, even in industrialized countries, the fixed and mobile networks still provide insufficient bandwidth and quality. Although it can be a feasible supplement or serve as a general alternative in these situations, satellite communication has unique characteristics that can place certain restrictions or conditions on the application being used. The lab is equipped with DSL and satellite connections for simulating heterogeneous corporate networks and testing their suitability as underlying communication platforms for enterprise applications. The test results can serve as a basis for developing feasibility studies or they can be used as functional models in conjunction with the existing lab infrastructure.
