VIAVI TM500 Network Tester


The TM500 is a scalable test system for validating network performance as experienced by end users, across multiple cells and different radio access technologies. With integrated data services it is able to measure the complete performance of the network, from RF through to the packet core – this includes interaction with other users, the simulated RF environment and mobility, accurately replicating real-world user behaviour profiles such as web browsing, emails, downloading files, video streaming and Voice over LTE (VoLTE), together with mobility across the radio access network.


  • End to end 5G NR testing with configurable data applications per UE and 5G Core simulation

  • Measurement and reporting of available carriers and common beams

  • Real-time monitoring of carrier and common beam performance indicators

  • Time correlate UE traffic and carrier/beam key performance indicators

  • Support for open/closed loop testing, decoupled/ coupled UL/DL, low/high-layer test modes

  • 3GPP GSM, WCDMA, LTE, LTE-A FDD and TDD, and 5G

  • Support of 3GPP LTE and LTE-A Rel-8, Rel-9, Rel-10 and Rel-11, WCDMA up to Rel-10, and pre-3GPP 5G NR

  • Support of high data rates through high order MIMO and/or aggregation of multiple component carriers

  • Up to 60 MHz BW per UE for LTE-A, and 20MHz BW per UE for WCDMA (MC-HSDPA)

  • Up to 600 Mbps over 40 MHz for LTE and 168Mbps for WCDMA

  • Support of multiple RF bands, and CPRI

  • Cabled or over the air operation

  • Comprehensive logging, control, display, and analysis tools
