provides an open automated platform for mobile network end-to-end performance testing in both real and RF channel-simulated environments.
Application Areas
Whether you are developing new network products or operating a mobile network, cFRAME can accelerate essential application and network performance testing and leverage test bed resources to increase efficiency and automation. cFRAME is specifically designed to support applications where choreography and remote control of distributed / shared test objects play a key role.

Ran testing landscape

Mobile product testing is increasingly given a greater priority for network engineers. The growing number of variants, frequency of versions, complexity and functionality coupled with the faster rate that new products are released has influenced new product development and integration. As a result, testing has become very extensive and hard to manage manually. New testing and simulation processes are needed to eliminate errors already in the lab, because field testing is both time-consuming and expensive.
Automated testing provides objective evidence of product performance, availability and quality sooner (QoS). It allows setting promise points and defining a time-to-market schedule with confidence. Not only can it influence resource planning and optimization, but have an overall positive ROI impact on R&D, maintenance, product image and user satisfaction (QoX).

Engineer and Bottom Line Benefits

Automated Testing


No more terminal windows overhead


No more manual input to remote user applications


No more manual scheduling of user applications


No more server administration to join new nodes to the map

Improved Cycle-time


Reduced labor cost due to less running time


Reduced HW/SW tools cost due to better reuse


Shorter time-to-market of higher quality products

Improved Quality


Fewer defects, resulting in less rework


Fewer returns, resulting in less reprocessing costs


Reduced time spent handling customer complaints


No test-retest variability (repeatable measurements)

Throughput testing automation example

Throughput testing is intrinsically labor-intensive, hence perfect candidate for automation. In the above example 4 tests were used to automatically emulate full spectrum of channel conditions for data download / upload over TCP and UDP and produced 6 performance measurements indicative of maximum sustained and peak measured throughput.
