The Valid8 Conformance Test Suites are suitable for testing many protocols and interfaces in the wireless and wireline network including S1AP, X2AP, F1AP, Diameter, HTTP2, PFCP, GTP, SIP, ISUP, H.323 and many others.
The Conformance solution is capable of simulating and testing several devices individually or in parallel:
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 2019) will allow for creating customized call scenarios by dragging and dropping the call flow to meet your test needs.
In the scenario where the eNodeB is to be tested, it can be tested by the Valid8 4G Network Emulator emulating the core network. Additionally, load and conformance tests are available for interfaces S1-MME and S1-U. In the case where the eNodeB needs to be tested on the RF side, it can be tested by the Valid8 4G UE Emulator.
For testing the PCRF, the 4G Network Emulator can wrap around the PCRF with the core network and IMS.
For testing the PGW, the 4G Network Emulator can wrap around the node using the S5/8, S7, Sxx and SGi interfaces. Traffic can be originated from real or emulated UE and IoT devices.
For testing UE or IoT devices, the 5G, 4G or 3G Network Emulators can provide the entire core network as well as an emulated or real base station depending on your test needs.
For testing the SIP Client, the Valid8 Tester can generate SIP calls to test performance and stability.
For testing the SIP Server, the Valid8 Tester can generate SIP calls to test performance and stability.
Emulate Real Network Conditions
For testing the HSS Server, the Valid8 Tester can generate S6a, Sh Diameter traffic to test performance and stability.
For testing the AMF, the 5G Network Emulator can wrap around the node using the N1, N2, N8, N11, N12 & N22 interfaces. Traffic can be originated from real or emulated UE and IoT devices
