McKinney, TX (November 13, 2012) – Sophisticated policy implementations, shared charging quotas, new Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology, advanced policy enforcement devices, VoLTE, and all of the other measures taken to monetize data consumption have produced an exponential increase in signaling traffic. While the focus on testing data capacity is important, capacity testing in the signaling network has been neglected, leading to an increase in outages related to processing this massive increase in signaling.
Developing Solutions® has introduced dsTest®, a tool that simplifies the load testing necessary to insure that your signaling network can support your capacity requirement.
dsTest generates signaling traffic into the core network based on simulating UE activity from an emulated node. Multiple emulated nodes can be coordinated to simulate the UE traffic for complex interaction such as VoLTE. Unlike some test tools, dsTest provides stateful, standards-based applications that react appropriately to both expected and unexpected events without the need for scripting. We have simplified the process of performance testing your signaling core. Where dsTest surpasses all other tools is in its capacity, its performance, and the ease with which you can customize the scenarios and messages to achieve your testing goals. dsTest provides unmatched capacity and performance: dsTest can deliver more than 300,000 stateful protocol transactions per second and scale to more than 100 million subscribers from a single 1RU server.
