I’ve installed 5GC properly and the tests work just fine. Now I have to start working on my master thesis, for which, essentially, I have to register one (or more) UE in the core and then generate traffic to Internet of different kinds, like pings or even video packages.
I’ve been looking through all the forum and searching in some other places and I can’t seem to find the information on how to do it. I would appreciate if you could answer the next questions because I feel like I’m completely stuck:
-Do I need an emulator for the UE so I can generate the traffic? If so, which one do you recommend?
-Is it mandatory to have a RAN simulator or is there any way around it to connect the UE directly to the core (RAN is not an area of interest in my thesis)?
In the RegistrationTest code I’ve seen some lines referring to the registration of an UE and making a ping from there, so I was wondering if in order to achieve my goal I’ll have to make a .go script that initializes the UE and then generates the traffic. So far I don’t see any other ways of doing this, but I would really appreciate some insight.
Regards and thank you in advance
