MAP Load Tester

Scalable MAP protocol load, feature and security testing solution for all interfaces including mobile 3G UMTS

Overview

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).

What It Can Do For You

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.

Why It’s Different

  • Scalable software-based architecture can run on a range of hardware from COTS and high-end customer provided hardware to Virtual Machines and the Cloud (e.g. Amazon AWS) for maximum versatility and performance
  • Web-based UI is easy to learn
  • HTTP API enable integration with automation test systems and other equipment
  • Stateful modeling provides accurate emulation of network elements

Features

  • Measure Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) such as number of simultaneous sessions and Busy Hour Call Attempts (BHCA)
  • Check transaction content correctness
  • Check load capabilities
  • Generate valid and invalid/negative messages and call-scenarios
  • Supports sending invalid responses including malformed, dropped and misordered packets
  • Security testing

Security test option includes:

  • Act as a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) and access the roaming network through an existing operator.

Subsystems

MSC, SGSN, VLR, HLR

KPIs
Configurable Parameters
  • ‍Call session length
  • Concurrent calls/endpoints
  • BHCA/CPS

Automation API

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.

Scripting

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.
