The Valid8 MCPTT tester enables testing of SIP, Diameter, MBMS GTP and RTP with Floor Control on the LTE network up to 3GPP Rel 15. It includes test scenarios for MC-PTT (Push-to-talk), MC-Data and MC-Video.
Scalable MCPTT SIP, Diameter, RTP load and feature testing.
Test MCPTT equipment and public safety networks with realistic traffic.
The Valid8 MCPTT tester 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.
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.
For testing the MCPTT AS, the Valid8 Tester can generate SIP PTT calls to test performance and stability.
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.
