McKinney, TX (Oct 1, 2017) – Developing Solutions has added more Open Mobile Alliance™ (OMA) specified Representational State Transfer (RESTful) Network Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to its dsTest suite of Cellular Internet of Things (CIoT) test solutions.

These APIs provide the ability to the Application Servers/Service Capability Server (AS/SCS) to obtain information regarding user equipment, including location, various capabilities, and status from the network in general, and specifically from the Services Capability Exposure Function (SCEF).

Currently available are  the Terminal Status, Messaging, and Presence APIs, with others currently under development:

  • Terminal Status
  • Devices Capabilities
  • Messaging
  • Message Broadcast
  • Presence
  • Communication Patterns

The implementation of these standardized APIs provides additional features to support CIoT Network Testing with dsTest, with our other CIoT/NB-IoT interface applications.

About dsTest

Developing Solutions’ growing collection of protocol applications and Subscriber Management, Policy and Charging Control, EPC, IMS, CIoT/NB-IoT, eMBMS, SMS, VoLTE, and VoWiFi/WLAN Interworking testing tools gives dsTest the ability to identify problems and potential bottlenecks in the lab before they show up in the network.

In addition to Control Plane interfaces, dsTest also support User Data interfaces.

dsTest runs on several distributions of Linux and is designed to take advantage of the latest processor and virtualization technology available with COTS hardware in order to provide high performance and capacity, and assists carriers and vendors in their drive toward network function virtualization (NFV) and software defined networks (SDN). Wireless Service Providers and Network Equipment Manufacturers rely on dsTest to for performance, compliance, and reliability validation of their network devices and architectures. dsTest is accompanied by the dsClient graphic user interface (GUI), which allows easy configuration and control of the tool, and provides live operational measurements monitoring in chart or tabular form.

dsTest further simplifies the process of testing the signaling core with multiple advanced testing features and solutions, such as C-SGN Testing, SmartEvents, Diameter Dictionary validation, and SmartAVP.
