To verify/certify the proper operation of each of the functions supported by the SUT (system under test) or DUT (device under test)
To verify the maximum capacity supported by the SUT or DUT in each of its functions using test environments that simulate demanding conditions.
To check whether a service is able to support the business for which it is intended. Each service is tested from the user’s point of view by simulating every possible interaction
To define, by comparison with a baseline, whether configuration changes, topologies, devices and the like affect the service in any way.
AREAS OF APPLICATION
Evaluation of multiplay-converged services and application-delivery platforms by emulating clients and video, voice and data servers and their associated protocols. It supports advanced client modelling that creates realistic scenarios for measuring quality of experience (QoE).
Broadband (xDSL, FTTH)
Evaluates access networks and their components, as well as quality of experience (QoE) emulating protocols and devices in xDSL or FTTH Broadband Access environments
Evaluates Carrier Ethernet implementations, answering questions related to performance, operation, administration and management (OAM).
DATACENTER / CLOUD
Simulates systems, technologies and protocols related to data centres, such as virtualisation, storage, switching fabric, and so forth, as well as application clients, to test for performance and compliance.
High Speed Ethernet
Validation and certification of the compliance of high-speed devices (40GbE and 100GbE) by generating traffic at line speed for packet forwarding verification and analysis of the physical environment.
Network Function Virtualization (NFV)
Thanks to virtualised test environments capable of generating traffic and emulating L2/L7 protocols, dedicated application performance dedicated appliances is evaluated, orchestration/management of geographically distributed functionalities is verified and any new vulnerabilities can be discovered.
Routing / Switching
Traffic generation and routing and switching protocol emulation for functional analyses of scalability and routers and high-capacity switch performance with high speed-ports.
Software Defined Network (SDN)
Use of test tools designed for virtual environments that allow traffic generation and emulation of protocols such as OpenFlow and VXLAN for verification of capacity, scalability and convergence of SDN network infrastructure.
Simulation of real user traffic acting as client and server at line speed, sending good traffic along with malicious traffic (DDoS attacks and vulnerabilities to measure performance and protection of security systems).
Test solutions that deliver the realism and high scalability needed to validate the critical elements of wireless technologies and optimise the user experience in mobile environments, congested conditions, interference and even faults, by recreating complex LTE, 3G, WiFi, HetNets scenarios in the laboratory.
INSERTION OF DISRUPTIONS
This allows users of traffic-generation and protocol-emulation test systems to simulate the WAN network conditions (packet loss, jitter, latency, etc.) to create environments with realistic conditions that can be reproduced in a controlled and stable manner.
MOBILE CORE NETWORK
Test solutions for validating in IMS, LTE environments that allow testing of functionality and capability of systems and equipment by simulating network components such as MGW, softswitches, IP/ISDN PBX’s, HLR/HSS, GW signalling/access, HSS, x -CSCF, AAA and Sigtran elements, etc.
Faster deployments without compromising quality
Reduction of the number of network incidents
Characterisation of devices and control of scalability that enables better planning for growth
Verification of compliance with standards
Reduction of incident resolution-times
Evaluation/comparison under realistic and load conditions for manufacturers in the process of acquiring equipment
