Overview

The Valid8 2G Network Emulator provides an all-in-one, cost-effective and ultra-portable 2G network for demonstration, testing and training purposes.

What It Can Do For You

The Valid8 2G Network Emulator is capable of simulating and testing several devices individually or in parallel and is scalable to fit your needs. It enables testing of the A interface and the Gb interface over IP towards the BSC.

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

BSSMAP request/response messages for call handling, mobility management

Mobile calling - MTC and MOC

Flexible, configurable dial-plan - options to page other mobiles, simulate PSTN terminated call and play reference media files, or media echo

SMS - outbound and inbound

Runs over SIGTRAN/SCTP

Generate valid and invalid/negative messages and call-scenarios

Supports sending invalid responses including malformed, dropped and misordered packets

Alerts and notifications

Check parameters in messages from SUT and flag errors

Subsystems

The Valid8 2G Network Emulator is compromised 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.

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 2019) will allow for creating customized call scenarios by dragging and dropping the call flow to meet your test needs.
