The Valid8 IMS Core Network Emulator provides an all-in-one, cost-effective and ultra-portable IMS network for demonstration, testing and training purposes.
Emulates all necessary IMS core nodes including P/I/S-CSCF, AS and 4G/5G nodes including HSS/UDM and PCRF, connecting on Cx/Dx,Rx, Gx,Gm, Mw, SGi interfaces.
The Valid8 IMS Core Network Emulator is comprised of multiple subsystems that are available individually or in parallel, and are scalable to fit your needs. The individual emulators are controllable through their call controllers, and the traffic can be captured through use of a remote capture tool such as Wireshark.
User commands can be fully automated using REST API. This includes performing all test control functions as well as collecting results and metrics. It can be integrated into virtually any CI system via the HTTP API, including Jenkins, CircleCI, Gitlab and others.
The application’s subsystems can be edited directly in the browser using TDL or by using the graphical tools. The Message Workshop allows for creating of test scenarios directly from the hex stream of a remote capture, while the Graphical Editor (on the feature roadmap for 3Q 2020) will allow for creating customized call scenarios by dragging and dropping the call flow to meet your test needs.
For testing the SIP Client, the Valid8 Tester can generate SIP calls to test performance and stability.
The Valid8 IMS Core Network Emulator is capable of simulating and testing several devices individually or in parallel and is scalable to fit your needs.
