The Valid8 2G GSM Network Emulator enables testing of the A interface over IP towards the BSC.
The Valid8 3G Network Emulator is a comprehensive solution for 3G UMTS network emulation and load testing. It enables testing of the Iuh inferface towards the HNB Gateway and the IuCS and IuPS interfaces towards the RNC/HNB Gateway. Options are available to include real or simulated HNBs.
The Valid8 4G LTE Network Emulator is a comprehensive solution for 4G network emulation and load testing. It can provide either the complete emulated EPC and IMS layers or just the nodes that are needed for a specific test. There are options available to include either our real eNodeB if you need to use real UE devices with real web-browsing, or our simulated eNodeB in software if you don't need the RF interface. It is cost-effective and ultra-portable, and is ideal for demonstration, testing and training purposes.
The Valid8 4G UE Emulator provides a cost-effective solution for generating realistic UE calls in testing scenarios. It is a scalable solution that enables the generation of up to hundreds of calls over the Uu interface. It is useful for eNodeB feature and capacity testing and any use case where real call generation is needed. It provides many advantages over using real UEs or basic simulators, including:
Software based UEs are much more flexible in terms of adding new features than real UEs.
Real UEs often become obsolete within a few years
Easier to execute scripts over large numbers of virtual UEs than on real UEs
The HW doesn’t need to change when increasing the number of virtual UEs
The band for software based UEs are fully configurable, unlike real UEs
TCO (total cost of ownership) for software based UE solution is less expensive than real UEs
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a standard protocol defined by RFC 2131 (which obseletes RFCs 1541 and 1531) that allows a server to dynamically distribute IP addressing and configuration information to clients
The Valid8 DHCP Load Tester allows you to test DHCP Servers. It enables continuous testing through the network to report quality and find issues. Rules are set up in the tool to cycle through multiple network destinations according to the test plan. It reports on responses received and transaction time.
Diameter is an authentication, authorization and accounting (AAA) protocol for computer networks, and is an alternative to RADIUS.
The Valid8 Diameter Load Tester allows you to test Diameter clients and servers. It enables continuous testing through the network to report quality and find issues. Rules are set up in the tool to cycle through multiple network destinations according to the test plan. It reports on responses received and transaction time.
The Valid8 Fixed Network Tester provides an all-in-one, cost-effective and scalable test system for comprehensive testing of converged IP telephony networks. It tests scalibility, performance, interoperability, and call quality in IP telephony networks and IMS. Voice Quality Measurements utilizing real voice streams can also be analyzed using standards such as PESQ.
The Valid8 Internet of Things (IoT) Load Tester provides an all-in-one, cost-effective solution for emulating and testing against large numbers of IoT devices. It is a fully automatable solution that addresses the unique challenges brought by IoT testing by supporting a wide range of protocols, industries, and manufacturers.
The Valid8 Megaco Load Tester enables testing of the interface towards the MG (gateway) or MGC (softswitch).
In the P25 network, the Inter RF Subsystem Interface (ISSI) is an open interface that enables RF Subsystems (RFSSs) from different vendors to communicate with each other.
The Valid8 P25 ISSI Load Tester enables testing of SIP and RTP IMBE on the ISSI G interface. The related conformance test suite is also available
H.323 and SIP are standards that define the protocols for audio-visual communication sessions over IP. They are both widely implemented by voice and videoconferencing equipment manufacturers.
The Valid8 VoIP Load Tester allows you to test Endpoints, PBXs Gateways, and test load and feature interaction for audio and video. It enables continuous route testing through the network to report quality and find issues. It is useful for small and large carriers: ILECs, CLECs, ASPs, ISPs, as well as enterprise customers. It automates deterministic verification of routes and phone numbers across VoIP networks, saving time and increasing effectiveness and coverage of testing. Rules are set up in the tool to cycle through multiple network destinations and phone numbers according to the test plan. It reports on media received, call connect time, call duration, jitter, packet loss. It verifies equipment is working and configured as it should and helps check that SLAs are being met.
