ReSTful Network APIs

dsTest supports the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) Representational State Transfer (ReSTful) Network Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) between the Application Server/Services Capability Server (AS/SCS) and the Services Capability Exposure Function (SCEF).   The OMA specifies these APIs with HTTP protocol bindings using a ReST architecture, for the various individual interface definitions, including naming conventions, content type negotiation, representation formats and serialization, and fault definitions.

These APIs provide the ability to the AS/SCS to obtain information regarding user equipment, including location, various capabilities, and status from the network in general, and specifically from the SCEF.

The implementation of these standardized APIs provides additional features to support CIoT Network Testing with dsTest, with our other CIoT/NB-IoT interface applications.

Implementation

The flowing APIs have been implemented and are available in dsTest:

  • Terminal Status
  • Messaging
  • Presence
  • Terminal Location (under development)
  • Communication Patterns (under development)
  • Message Broadcast (under development)
  • Device Capabilities (under development)

A complete set of events that can be generated by the dsTest AS node simulator  to the SCEF emulator with the ReSTful API application can be found here.  When estimating the required Transactions Per Second (TPS) to license for this interface application, use this TPS-to-PPS multiplier table.

A comprehensive set of Operational Measurements (Messaging, Presence, Terminal Status) are collected at user defined intervals, and can be charted during test runs using our graphical user interface.
