Valid8 SIGTRAN SS7 Conformance is comprised of multiple subsystems that can be activated as needed to test compliance. Traffic can be captured through the use of a remote capture tool such as Wireshark.

  • Test Verdict - Pass, Fail or Inconclusive 
  • Detailed message field validation
Configurable Parameters
  • IP address and port
  • Network layer- IPv4 / IPv6
  • Transport layer- UDP / TCP / SCTP / TLS
  • Phone numbers
  • Authentication - username and password
  • Unexpected message handling - Stop / Continue

Automation API

User commands can be fully automated using an HTTP API. This includes all control functions as well as collection of results and metrics. It can be integrated into any CI system including Jenkins, CircleCI, Gitlab and others. Our Autom8 Python framework is included to ease integration.


The application can be edited directly in the browser using VTDL using Composer, a powerful development environment that includes error checking and a graphical view easing the creation and modification of scenarios. Codec Studio can be used to quickly build message templates from raw PDUs, as captured by tcpdump for example, to use in the scenarios.
