SRS has today released the source code for CoreScope, a test and performance analysis tool for 5G core networks. CoreScope builds upon the open-source srsRAN software suite.
The CoreScope application combines 5G gNodeB and UE components to connect directly to a 5G core network and exercise it without the need for a radio interface. Behaving like a UE, CoreScope connects directly to the AMF and UPF via N2 and N3 interfaces to perform a complete network attach and bearer activation procedure. CoreScope provides a convenient standalone tool for 5G core network testing and analysis.
This initial public release of CoreScope will be enhanced as further 5G functionality is developed within our UE and RAN workstreams.
The first release of the CoreScope source code is available on GitHub.
