Hi Silke,

Good to see you here on the list! :)
I am also quite new here, because although I worked once on some core network stuff some years ago I just signed up for this list yesterday.

I think, as far as I remember the only virtual UE implementation I saw came from EURECOM/openAirInterface.

Maybe that is something worth checking out.
Otherwise a fake UE can be implemented even in Python with the help of libmich/pycrate I think.

I am still new in thr area of available open-source core networks. I know that a very lightweight and compact package is offeted by srsEPC - although it probably does not have the S8 interface you require. I need to have a closer look at nextEPC to see how exactly it looks like, so I won’t talk about that now.

Wish you good luck!
