Network modelling and traffic characterisation are essential research activities towards the optimisation of UMTS. We present here our IPv6 Linux-based UTRAN testbed which aims at emulating a real UTRAN segment. This emulation is relying on statistical traffic distributions, random walk UE mobility and line-of-sight power-based handover management. By interconnecting those different modules, we expose the first testbed results about the handover management and our views regarding the QoS management.
