REST Feature Tester

Scalable REST API test solution for all interfaces including wireline, mobile 4G/5G and IoT

Overview

REST is a common API architectural style based on HTTP that provides interoperability between computer systems on the Internet, between micro-services and was adopted by 3GPP for several interfaces in 5G. This solution allows the construction of complex REST requests that can be used for testing API features and performance under load.

What It Can Do For You

  • HTTP/1.1, HTTPS/1.1, HTTP/2 and HTTPS/2 support for aiding migration
  • Allows deterministic, state machine based testing of complex scenarios, not just single shot API calls
  • Can perform fuzz, security, feature and performance testing on single or multiple REST interfaces concurrently, generating thousands of transactions per second (scalable per machine), with fully customizable message flows and content.
  • Comes with pre-canned scenarios which can be tailored to specific requirements
  • Aids protoyping and deveopment, and a compatible migration path to our other products

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 enables integration with automation test systems and other equipment
  • Stateful modeling provides accurate emulation of network elements

  • Concurrent calls/endpoints
  • BHCA/CPS

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.

Use Cases

AMF Under Test

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

Supported Scenarios:

• General Registration

• Registration with AMFre-allocation

• UE-initiated Deregistration

• Network-initiated Deregistration

• UE Triggered Service Request

• Network Triggered Service Request

• UE Configuration Update procedure for access and mobility management related parameters    

• UE Configuration Update procedure for transparent UE Policy delivery

• UE Reachability Notification Request procedure

• UE Activity Notification procedure    

• AN Release
