McKinney, TX (March 19, 2015) – Network Testing Solutions: dsAnalyzer

dsAnalyzer is a comprehensive 3G/4G/LTE packet core traffic analysis tool, available for Linux platforms.  It is a software solution that allows your existing network taps and probes to be used to generate message trace files that can be fed into dsAnalyzer for detailed filtering and examination of packets.  The information gained from this type of analysis is crucial for verifying complex network services such as VoLTE, Resource Allocation, or Usage Monitoring and Reporting.   Network performance and routing anomalies such as traffic bottlenecks and capacity issues can be addressed.

dsAnalyzer currently supports multiple Diameter interfaces, GTPv1-C, GTPv2-C, and MAP.  It accepts inputs from multiple message trace files and correlates the packets based upon configurable filters, and supports both stateful and stateless protocols.  New interfaces can be added quickly.  Contact Developing Solutions if you have an interface you would like to have considered.

dsAnalyzer has a graphical user interface that allows it to be quickly configured and controlled.  It can also be operated from the Linux command line.
