DISH picks Spirent for 5G Core automated testing
Automated compliance, capacity and performance test suites, as well as test cases enable DISH to test and validate Open RAN 5G in a public cloud network.

DISH Network Corporation has selected Spirent Communications plc to autonomously test its 5G network core and validate its performance. This will allow DISH to continuously integrate functionality into its network and rapidly deliver leading-edge systems to both retail and enterprise customers. DISH, which is partnering with AWS on cloud infrastructure, is set to become the first telecom company to run its service on the public cloud. Spirent's solutions will enable DISH to realize the superior agility of deploying an OpenRAN, cloud-native 5G network while ensuring enhanced customer experiences.

"DISH is transforming the industry as it prepares to deploy 5G in a public cloud network and pioneer Open Radio Access Network (Open RAN) technology," said Doug Roberts, general manager of Spirent's lifecycle service assurance business. "Spirent understands the inherent challenges that come with building an open, secure network and supporting a new, first-of-its-kind delivery model. We are assisting DISH in driving operational excellence across the entire lifecycle with industry-leading automation, coverage and analytics capabilities.”

DISH will leverage Spirent's 5G expertise, proven test methodologies and years of experience in global 5G ecosystems. Spirent ensures vendor-neutral validation so DISH can test and validate with confidence to assure 5G core readiness for live operation. With access to Spirent's library of automated compliance, capacity and performance test suites, as well as test cases, DISH can verify 5G functionality, measure system performance and accelerate deployment activities. By automating the testing process, DISH can continuously verify real-world performance and resilience during its network rollout, proving the public cloud is telco-grade, and scaling up a continuously improving system.
