Generic Network Access (GAN) testing with the Keysight 8960

The E6708A Enhanced GAN license is an extension to the 8960's E6701 or E6703 lab applications, which work in conjunction with the GANC emulator software (E6962B) and customer-supplied access point (WLAN or Bluetooth).

The system allows a connected GAN-enabled mobile device to be tested when making either GERAN/UTRAN (G/U) or GAN based voice, data and signaling connections as well as exercising all applicable GAN-to-G/U mode transitions. The system achieves this through simulation or inclusion of all real-world network components required for such procedures. A Keysight 8960 is used as the G/U cell emulator, and a commercial device may be used as the WLAN or Bluetooth access point. This suite supports GAN functional test and is capable of exercising 100% of the GAN conformance test scenarios specified in section 80 of 3GPP TS 51.010.

Features include:
- GAN discovery and registration
- GAN-based speech calls, packet switched data, SMS, DTM
- GAN or Geran/UTRAN mode selection, rove-in/out, handover-in/out

Data Connection

  • Data throughput reporting
  • Support for Release 6 based 3G PS data over GAN
  • Support for GPRS Packet Paging over GAN
  • Support for security-enabled IP in cases where GAN–related IP security features cannot be disabled on the mobile device. Requires customer-supplied Secure Gateway (SEGW) plus Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) server


  • Support for use of the 8960’s Digital Audio Interface (DAI) and Real Time Vocoder (RTV) with GAN speech calls
  • Support for use of the AMR-WB speech codec over GAN
  • New "MS requested" and "Stress mode" Current Codec options provided for GAN speech calls

Test Support
