Non-Terrestrial Network Validation with Simnovus UE Simulator


Conquer NTN Validation Challenges with Simnovus UE Simulator: Empowering NB-IoT & 5G over Satellites

Embark on your NTN journey with the ultimate validation tool! The Simnovus UE Simulator empowers you to master the intricate complexities of Non-Terrestrial Networks (NTNs) for both NB-IoT and 5G, ensuring seamless connectivity and impeccable performance across the cosmos. Dive deep into our cutting-edge technical features, optimized for conquering all NTN validation challenges:

1. Verify the newly introduced SIBs:

  • Non-Terrestrial Network for NB-IoT: Validate the base station’s ability to broadcast critical System Information Blocks (SIBs) like SIB31, ensuring accurate network synchronization and efficient resource allocation for your NB-IoT devices.
  • Non-Terrestrial Network for 5G: Validate the accuracy and timeliness of satellite ephemeris data transmission by the base station within SIB19, which is crucial for the UEs to calculate their own location and improve signal acquisition performance.

2. Verify the Extended Timers:

  • Doppler Shift Correction: Simulate UE’s automatic compensation mechanisms to handle the frequency Doppler shift and the delay introduced in the service and the feeder link. Analyze the Timing Advance (TA) calculations and network synchronization accuracy.
  • Extended Delay Management: Ensure that extended timers like T300, T320, and T380. Evaluate if UEs can be served by the base station under increased signal travel times, guaranteeing robust network access and reliable data transmission.
