In 2012, Developing Solutions® introduced a new licensing model which allows its customers to share a dsTest® license across multiple groups within an organization. Read more about dsTest Floating Licenses here.
Developing Solutions now provides a cloud-based, hosted version of Floating Licensing for users that do not want to manage their dsTest resources.
With a hosted floating license, users can take advantage of their dsTest resources without worrying about the physical hosting requirements. Developing Solutions provides access to those resources with a dsTest deployment that is:
- Managed by Developing Solutions;
- Available inside or outside the user’s private network;
- Redundant, with uninterrupted operation;
- Geographically distributed;
- Monitored 24×7.
The use of a hosted license provides the structure for a highly reliable Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) deployment of dsTest. Platform virtualization is supported with this form of dsTest deployment, allowing dsTest features and capabilities to be dynamic, delivering the required conditions for a dsTest environment for functional testing without the need for active customer management of the resources.
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. Unlike some test tools, dsTest provides stateful, standards-based applications that react appropriately to both expected and unexpected events without the need for scripting. Developing Solutions has simplified the process of performance testing the signaling core. Where dsTest surpasses all other tools is with its capacity, performance, and the ease with which scenarios and message content can be customized to achieve testing goals. dsTest provides unmatched capacity and performance with more than 300,000 stateful protocol transactions per second, scaling to more than 100 million subscribers on a single server.
