UE Test Suite

Suite of feature tests to verify the UE device

Overview

The Valid8 UE Test Suite is suitable for testing a variety of features on the UE device including attach/detach, session establishment, IPv4/6, throughput, mission critical (MCX), flood messages, authentication, SMS, emergency attach, location, power-level, and mobility. It runs in conjunction with M5 UE Tester (required).

What It Can Do For You

The test suite works with UE Tester is capable of simulating and testing various different devices including:

  • Phone
  • CPE
  • Modem
  • IoT

It invokes Simul8 to automate the following:

  • Configures and starts the UE Tester
  • Interacts with the UE Tester programs to set/override the mode as required by the test case
  • Triggers the UE (DUT) via AT commands to initiate the necessary procedure or activate the required feature as required by the test case
  • Queries and display the result on the UI and report

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

Subsystems

KPIs
  • 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.

Scripting

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.
