McKinney, TX (Oct 21, 2017) – dsTest added support both server emulation and client interface simulator capabilities for the 3GPP LTE Nt Diameter interface.   The Nt reference point is located between the Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) and the Service Capability Exposure Function (SCEF).  This interface is used for reporting the transfer policies from the PCRF to the SCEF.  The PCRF uses the information received from SCEF and other available information to determine one or more transfer policies for background data to the application service provider.  The Nt Interface application provides additional features to the CIoT testing capabilities of dsTest.
