McKinney, TX (Nov 17, 2014) – Developing Solutions‘ dsTest set a new performance benchmark of 1,200,000 stateful protocol transactions per second for testing of policy control and charging, Diameter routing and subscriber management applications, further enhancing its leadership of unmatched performance and capacity testing for 3G and 4G core network nodes.
The European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC) verified this latest benchmark using two different scenarios involving commercial off the shelf (COTS) servers:
In this scenario, one 32-core server provided Policy Enforcement Functions (PCEF) and Call Session Control Functions (CSCF) clients simulators, and two 16-core servers provided Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) server emulators.
In the second scenario, the 32-core server emulated the PCRF as well as PCEF and CSCF nodes. The two 16-core servers were configured as PCEF and CSCF clients and another PCRF. In this scenario, a Diameter Routing Agent (DRA) would typically be positioned between the emulated client and server nodes with the one instance of dsTest making sure that the messages are transmitted to their appropriate destination.
Join us at LTE North America in Dallas, November 19-20, at Booth 20. We will have dsTest demostrations with various vendors’ equipment.
This new performance benchmark and Developing Solutions’ growing collection of protocol applications and EPC testing tools gives dsTest the ability to identify potential bottlenecks in the lab before they show up in the network.
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. Wireless Service Providers and Network Equipment Manufacturers rely on dsTest to test performance, compliance, and reliability 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.
