Types of tests supported by RantCell pro app

RantCell as ping test tool to monitor the network

  • RantCell App can be used as ping test tool used as a diagnostic tool or as a 5G network latency benchmarking tool. It is used to measure or record the overall time of each packet to reach its destination and return back to the source. Ping test measures this latency in ms (millisecond) for a packet of data on 5G networks.

RantCell supports 5G speed tests

  • RantCell as network speed test tool which measures the speed between your device and a test server over the 5G networks.

RantCell App Pro can also be configured as continuous internet speed test tool that measures or tracks the bandwidth of 5G connection during an extended period of time. As network speed test software measures the performance of speed of on 5G networks.

  • RantCell Pro app functions as FTP speed test tool, is designed to transfer files back and forth between the computer and the server over the 5G network.

  • In RantCell App Pro HTTP load testing is a method of sending programmed simulated HTTP traffic to a server to measure its performance and action.

Web application testing

  • HTTP performance testing tool in RantCell App Pro is a tool that measures the performance of web application performance.

Video streaming

  • Video streaming test feature is designed to measure video quality of experience on smart mobile device connected over 2G/3G/4G/5G/Wi-Fi networks by calculating key performance indicators for video QoE parameters such as Launch Time, Load Time, Stalled Time and Total Video Play Time.

  • AT&T, world’s second largest provider of mobile network services launched its mm-wave network branded 5G+ after successful attempts of 5G network testing in United States (USA). 5G+ with faster speed and enhanced connectivity is already available in almost various parts of 38 cities in the United States and multiple public and private centres across the nation.

  • 5G network was made live in five Canadian cities after Bell Canada accomplished its initiatives of 5G network testing in Canada. Later, it reported availability of 5G network in more than 150 cities and small areas which is around 24% of the total population in Canada and targets to cover 50% by the end of 2021.

  • Germany’s top mobile operator Vodafone placed on a further 2,200 5G antennas with proper 5G network testing in Germany in around 800 locations. With this, they had more than 7,000 5G antennas installed covering 2,500 cities and towns which will provide network coverage to more than 20 mn (million) Germans and is expected to increase this number to 30 mn before 2021 ends.

  • Telstra Australia partnered with Ericsson to provide 5G equipment and performed 5G network testing in Australia facilitating 5G services to half of the country’s population by January 2021 with more than 750,000 5G devices already on their network. It plans to rollout 5G to 75% of population by June 2021.

  • Orange France was no behind in organizing trials for 5G network testing in France. On 3rd December 2020, it commercialized 5G in 15 municipalities with data speeds ~3-4 folds faster than 4G LTE network.

  • Telia Finland switched on its 5G network for 76 municipalities in November 2020 after successful completion of 5G network testing in Finland and around more than 1.5 mn people are enjoying these network services which represents 27% of the entire population of Finland.
