McKinney, TX (Jan 20, 2014) — A comprehensive set of Operational Measurements (OMs) should be an integral to any test tool since a critical part of testing in the 2G/3G/4G/LTE and IMS environment requires measurements that provide insight into the operation of the individual nodes and the network(s) that connect and surround them. Testing today’s sophisticated mobile networks requires measurements beyond the usual messages sent/received/error counts and standard statistics, because it is important that the OMs supply the information necessary to provide a broader understanding of the capacity and capabilities of the network entities under test, so that operators and vendors can judge network and node capacity and adequately plan future requirements and upgrades.
These measurements are required for both conformance testing and performance testing and the test tool should provide access to such information under load.
General Reference Guides
Use these Reference Guides to augment your network testing:
dsTest originates, receives, and processes signaling traffic into and from the core network. Multiple emulated nodes can be coordinated to simulate the UE traffic for complex signaling interactions 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.
dsTest surpasses all other tools with its capacity, its performance, and the ease with which you can customize the scenarios and messages to achieve your testing goals.
