Key benefits

  • Test and demo performance during a variety of network events
  • Validate critical issues with mobility and congestion in your lab
  • Reproduce test conditions, improve, and document your testing
  • Reduce cost and time of test effort – no airtime or line of sight required

Full control of your testing

Set up of test environments and the unpredictability of live network conditions is both time consuming and costly. More importantly, some rarely occurring network conditions might not even be obtainable for you to reproduce and test sufficiently. The BGAN Application Tester (BAT) provides you with complete control of your testing in an environment with specific BGAN network characteristics.

On-the-bench testing

Test and demo terminals and applications efficiently and thoroughly end-to-end in a sandbox network environment. Testing on the bench with the BGAN Application Tester eliminates the need for line of sight and airtime, while at the same time enabling test of any network scenario.

Optimize testing process

The BGAN Application Tester can be used to optimize test processes by offering on-the-bench emulation of the satellite link, the radio access network and the core network, right down to the RF link. By emulating the BGAN network you can test end-to-end in a controlled environment and monitor the effects of a live BGAN network on your application.

Testing of applications for UAVs

Growing dependency on digital solutions has demanded stronger and more effective satellite connectivity on unmanned vehicles for air and sea applications such as UAVs, UCAVs, RPAs, ASVs, and UUVs. It is crucial to test all satellite enabled applications to guarantee the safety and performance of your systems.

Prepare for critical missions by taking satellite enabled application testing to new levels. With a BGAN Application Tester, you can reproduce any scenario and validate all satellite enabled applications.
