McKinney TX (February 26, 2013) – Developing Solutions’ dsTest® has been incorporated into Ixia’s IxLoad EPC Diameter testing solution, enhancing the solution for complete testing of 4G network performance and scalability. dsTest is designed explicitly to facilitate the cost-effective testing of high performance protocols and applications, and is focused on 3G and 4G core network service interfaces to support network evolution testing. dsTestprovides a base from which new protocols and applications can be quickly developed to support new standards or custom protocols and applications.
dsTest offers server emulation and client simulation capabilities for comprehensive testing of 3GPP 3G and 4G core network interface functionality and performance. dsTest generates signaling traffic into the core network based on simulating UE activity from an emulated node. Multiple emulated nodes can be coordinated to simulate the UE traffic for complex interactions such as VoLTE – a network element can be surrounded with client simulators that simulate client activity; a server emulator can be provisioned with the interfaces necessary to support end-to-end testing; agents and proxies can be tested using both client simulation and server emulation. dsTest provides stateful, standards-based applications that react appropriately to both expected and unexpected events without the need for scripting.
