The main goal of this deliverable is to present results of an analytical survey of the necessary environmental conditions for testing and evaluation of the various 5G features and technologies of the site facilities, collected by polling the individual site managers. For each of the four 5G EVE sites, the document lists the tools used to generate traffic and to set up controllable, scalable, synthetic and near to realistic IP traffic needed for testing. Specifically, generators of test traffic or background traffic (types of higher-layer protocols that could be emulated or whose traffic can be synthetically generated) and whether they were to be used only in lab or in field testing as well. Next, the types of measurements are listed, which could be carried out within the facility as far as the propagation environment is concerned, addressing both indoors and outdoors cases. Finally, for each site, the document provides information regarding the configuration that is available at the site either for the network or for the test devices.
Additionally, this deliverable presents the first version of the testing, validation, and benchmarking tools, delivered as a suite for integration to the site facilities. Specifically, it includes some testing scripts that permit measuring 5G network KPIs such as speed, broadband connectivity and latency.
