The Mobile Application Part (MAP) is an SS7 protocol that provides an application layer for the various nodes in GSM and UMTS mobile core networks and GPRS core networks to communicate with each other in order to provide services to users. The Mobile Application Part is the application-layer protocol used to access the Home Location Register, Visitor Location Register, Mobile Switching Center, Equipment Identity Register, Authentication Centre, Short message service center and Serving GPRS Support Node (SGSN).
It can test fuzzing, security, feature and performance on single or multiple MAP interfaces concurrently, generating tens of thousands of transactions per second (scalable per machine), with customizable message flows and content.
MAP Load Tester comes with pre-canned scenarios which can be tailored to specific requirements.
Security test option includes:
MSC, SGSN, VLR, HLR
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 1Q 2020) will allow for creating customized call scenarios by dragging and dropping the call flow to meet your test needs.
For testing the HLR Server, the Valid8 Tester can generate MAP traffic on a variety of interfaces in parallel to test performance and stability.
For testing the MSC Server, the Valid8 Tester can generate MAP traffic on a variety of interfaces in parallel to test performance and stability.
For testing the SGSN Server, the Valid8 Tester can generate MAP traffic on a variety of interfaces in parallel to test performance and stability.
The Valid8 MAP Load tester is capable of simulating multiple nodes and generating large scale stateful MAP load
