McKinney, TX (February 13, 2019) – Developing Solutions, Inc. dsTest v5.2 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 v5.1 are carried forward into v5.2.
While many enhancements were added for continued support of 3G and 4G core network testing, the focus was expanding support for 5G Core network testing. Release 5.1 included the initial release of N7 for 5G Policy Control Function (PCF) testing along with new features within the N2, N3, N4, N6, N8, N10, N11, N12, and N13 reference points. Isolation testing of Access and Mobility Management Function (AMF), Session Management Function (SMF), and User Plane Function (UPF) have all benefited from the additional features added as has end-to-end testing of the 5GC.
To aid in your 3G/4G/5G core network testing, dsTest v5.2 also provides building block support to implement automated testing, including test case analysis to determine the resources required to successfully execute a test scenario.
We are now considering feature candidates for dsTest v5.2. Please contact us if you have a feature that you would like to submit for consideration for this development cycle.
