McKinney, TX (May 18, 2015) – Network Testing Solutions: eMBMS Testing with dsTest.

Developing Solutions announces dsTest support for evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (eMBMS) testing.

eMBMS is the enabling technology for LTE Broadcasting services, and is being deployed by operators as part of the expansion of services on their LTE networks.  LTE Broadcasting is designed to provide efficient delivery of content over 3GPP cellular networks, and is specified as an extension to the EPS for E-UTRAN, coexisting with unicast-data and voice services.  The technology is designed to ensure consistent user experience, while freeing network capacity by making network usage more efficient for live and on-demand video broadcasting.

About dsTest

Developing Solutions’ growing collection of protocol applications and EPC testing tools gives dsTest the ability to identify problems and 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, 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 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.

dsTest further simplifies the process of testing the signaling core with multiple advanced testing features, such as SmartEvents, Diameter Dictionary validation, and SmartAVP customized messages.
