McKinney, TX (December 30, 2011) – The dsTest SmartEvents feature enables you to extend an application’s state machine with new behaviors and measurements. SmartEvents has been enhanced to support conditional profiles based on probability assignments.
An example use case for this new feature is load testing with simulated VoLTE calls. By setting a probability assignment for the number of subscribers that will place voice calls you can create a load profile that produces the desired volume of simulated voice traffic transactions, thereby triggering the appropriate procedures that would establish dedicated bearers for the traffic. This type of load profile would be useful in testing both the Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) and the Packet Data Network Gateway (PGW).
With this feature you can shape the aggregate load profile while randomizing the actions taken by a particular subscriber, resulting in a more realistic simulation of subscriber activities.
dsTest focuses on the Subscriber Management, PCC, and SMS interfaces in the mobile packet core network. Our Interface applications can validate the stability and performance of network elements, and our HSS, PCRF, and Charging server emulators can be passive or active participants in the lab, and enable lab network administrators to quickly and easily configure subscriber and policy settings.
dsTest scales to support thousands of network connections, tens of millions of subscribers, and hundreds of thousands of transactions per second from a single server.
