RADIUS is an authentication, authorization, and accounting protocol used pervasively in telecom and datacom networks that manages network access. The Valid8 Radius Load Tester provides load testing capabilities across numerous Radius interfaces in fixed and mobile networks.
It can test fuzzing, security, feature and performance on single or multiple Diameter interfaces concurrently, generating tens of thousands of transactions per second (scalable per machine), with customizable message flows and content.

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 HSS Server, the Valid8 Tester can generate Diameter traffic on a variety of interfaces in parallel to test performance and stability.
For testing the PCRF, the 4G Network Emulator can wrap around the PCRF with the core network and IMS.
