Abstract

This paper aims to present a new performance measurement tool dedicated to mobile cellular networks, focussed on the new C-ITS applications and challenges. Called ISEL QoS-Network Performance Evaluation (IQ-NPE), developed under the European Union 5G-MOBIX project, it is a measurement performance tool that is able to extract a wide range of performance parameters at different levels: radio, network layers and application. This is a step further when comparing with classical tools, based on mobile terminals, because C-ITS applications take advantage of cellular modems using Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) advanced systems, due to available space offered by vehicles. IQ-NPE is designed to test classical alongside with the new C-ITS applications (ITS-G5 based) performance running at the Multi-access/Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) node in the new 5G architecture. All the collected data can be exported, as integrated performance data, to further be analysed using business intelligence tools. Thus, this paper presents the IQ-NPE general architecture, its main components, probes (units composed by hardware and software subsystems), together with configuration input and output examples.
