McKinney, TX (Jan 30, 2017) – Developing Solutions, Inc. dsTest v5.0  is available to all current customers with active support agreements.  It is available for downloading from the Developing Solutions secure support website.  All features available in v4.1 are carried forward into v5.0.

Besides continued support and development for 3G, LTE/4G, and basic 5G control and user plane applications and features, Developing Solutions, Inc. plans for dsTest Release 5.0 to be heavily influenced by 5G Next Generation Core (5GC) standards.  We already  have infrastructure in place to quickly provide service-oriented/ReSTful interfaces and support for Control and User Plane Separation (CUPS), both of which are central to the 5G standards.

In addition to 5G requirements,  dsTest 5.0 also provides building block support for enabling automated testing, including test case analysis to determine the resources required to successfully execute a test scenario.

Our dsAnalyzer tool provides the capability to analyze multiple message  traces and generate deployable dsTest test configurations based upon the content of the traces.

Feature candidates for dsTest v5.0 are now being considered.  Please contact Developing Solutions if you have a feature you would like to have considered for this development cycle.  A list of Interface Applications and Features being considered this release can be found here.

This event also marks the end of the dsTest v4.1 development phase.  The final dsTest v4.1 release was issued January 5, 2018.  A list of applications and features included in v4.1 can be found here.  Support and help information for v4.1 can be found here.
