(McKinney Tx (June 28, 2017) – Developing Solutions can provide secure, portable testing with the dsTest Network-To-Go (NTG). dsTest NTG can be preconfigured and easily carried into secure labs for specific proof-of-concept feasibility and/or conformance testing of network functionality.
The dsTest NTG is a cost-effective platform for dsTest portability, either as a test platform, or as a dsTest license server, providing hosted license availability to your dsTest implementations on bare metal servers or virtual machines (VMs) inside secure locations.
As a test server, dsTest NTG provides a fully functional dsTest configuration capable of 10,000 TPS or more. All dsTest licensable features and applications are available on the platform. A single dsTest NTG can simplify the testing architecture, while allowing greater testing flexibility and providing test interworking between 3GPP 3G/4G/5G radio networks and the network core.
For more information on how the dsTest NTG can be used to enhance your testing requirements, please contact Developing Solutions.

Developing Solutions’ growing collection of protocol applications and Subscriber Management, Policy and Charging Control, EPC, IMS, CIoT/NB-IoT, eMBMS, SMS, and WiFi Interworking testing tools gives dsTest the ability to identify problems and potential bottlenecks in the lab before they show up in the network.
In addition to Control Plane interfaces, dsTest also support User Data interfaces.
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 for performance, compliance, and reliability validation 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 and solutions, such as C-SGN Testing, SmartEvents, Diameter Dictionary validation, and SmartAVP.
