LTE LabKitTM - Lab EnodeB and LTE Callbox


Wireshark LTE Analysis on GSM/LTE LabKits
Legba LTE/GSM LabKit easy configuration for IoT tests
Simulating a complex LTE Network with the GSM/LTE LabKit
Controlling the LabKit with Javascript

Use it as a Lab eNodeB LTE & GSM basestation on your desk, or as a test callbox on your production line.
It comes in a light package (5kg or 10 pounds, including the phones).
Includes full Wireshark integration for access under the hood the LTE protocol both on the radio part and the S1 interface (S1AP) toward the core network. 


LTE LabKit with the free Hosted Core service provides the full functionality of an LTE/IMS/GSM/GPRS network.

It is intended for mobile network operators laboratory use, IoT and M2M application development, Callbox for IoT production lines, mobile phone vendors, and researchers.
The LTE LabKit used as a Lab eNodeB allows the easy and stable development of experiments and test procedures with the YateENB.



The LTE LabKit is a Lab EnodeB running on a small factor PC computer that has preinstalled the following software components:

YateENB (eNodeB)


YateLMI (Web management interface)​



Wireshark monitoring traffic inside EnodeB ( S1AP, GTP ) interfaces.

LTE enb working mode (LTE EnodeB connected to a MME/MiniCore/HostedCore)

Capability to switch between working modes: GSM NiPC, GSM roaming, GSM dataroam, LTE enb

Supports both IPv4 and IPv6 connection

NOTE: All the features from GSM LabKit also apply.
