5G Network Testing Solution

With the surge in network demand for better connections and high data throughput, deployment of 5G has been accelerated and so is the demand for testing 5G networks. With innovations across different industry verticals such as smart cities, autonomous vehicles, eHealth, industrial automation and applications to improve livelihood of consumers are driving need for 5G. Hence, this calls for an urgent requirement of 5G network testing strategy for telecom operators to scale up 5G rollout.

Challenges in 5G network testing

  • Currently, 5G test equipment is expensive due to its huge demand

  • Performing 5G testing is critical and time consuming till it reaches to analysis stage

  • Mass deployment of tool to field test engineers will require higher investment

To overcome these challenges, RantCell has come up with an app based 5G testing solution that is compatible on Android devices and can execute your network tests easily. Click here to get the list of supported devices.

Significantly improve your efficiency on 5G network testing


  • Reduce your manual efforts and testing time by 30%

  • Real-time upload of network test data from 5G test device to RantCell cloud

  • Web-based data visualisation on maps and analysis

  • Automated reports

Accelerate your 5G deployment by

  • Deploying RantCell app on mass scale to field engineers to perform 5G drive test based on various testing cases

  • Facilitation of 5G cell tower Single Site Verification and automated reporting via cloud

  • Compatible with most of the Android smartphones (supported on latest 5G devices only) available in the market

  • Data is uploaded on RantCell in real-time thus saving time in post-processing and further investment in such tools

  • Perform analysis on web-based dashboard and generate PDF reports to share it among colleagues to analyse test QoE/QoS data

Accelerate 5G indoor deployments with RantCell


Today, a large percentage of traffic ~70% is generated inside the premises of a building and we believe this will be true for 5G traffic as well in coming years. It is also expected that 5G enterprise private networks will rise in the next couple of years.

  • Swiftly load floor plans and enable 5G indoor walk testing feature in an area/building

  • Simple to use and quickly upload floor plans overlay on Google maps according to the boundaries of the building

  • Analyses 5G test results on the floor with RantCell dashboard and generate reports by click of a button

  • Capable of measuring 5G NR indoor coverage area and data speed performance

  • Creates user experience reports on 5G indoor floor plan to validate commercial deployments or optimise RF


Testing Dual connectivity (NSA) with RantCell 5G drive test tools

  • Our solution supports 5G NR KPIs for Non-standalone (NSA) 5G testing that depends on LTE core and Radio Access Network (RAN) with 5G carrier aggregation.

  • 4G and 5G throughputs can be monitored separately while doing NSA 5G speed tests.

  • 5G NR (New Radio) drive testing can be performed around dual connected 5G cell towers by RantCell 5G drive test tools where both 4G+5G parameters are measured.

  • Allowing operators to connect UE to LTE base station (primary node) and 5G base station (secondary node) with ENDC, permitting devices to access 4G LTE and 5G test networks simultaneously.

  • Supports cell lock / band lock feature. Lock a specific cell and perform drive test. Let's say 4G LTE cell is located in a test location, choose the desired bandwidth such as LTE25, LTE 40, etc. Click on 'Download' button and get the procedure to unlock cell lock / band lock feature on your Android smartphone and test with RantCell solution.

  • Procedure for cell lock/band lock


5G base station monitoring and 5G slicing verification

  • 24/7 5G base station monitoring

  • Remote monitoring of 5G base station

  • Allocation of network slice as per the use case or customer needs

  • Validation of network slices once it is defined and implemented

  • Identification of no data connectivity coverage areas
