Network Testing & Validation Solutions


valid8
Providing Feature, Conformance and Load Testing for LTE/4G, 3G, IMS, VoIP and PSTN telecommunication networks, Valid8’s ‘Protocol Engine’ has a scalable architecture based upon COTS Server Hardware. The application software has many features to streamline telecommunications & network testing and can be customized according to the customer’s environment allowing the user to run a variety of tests and modify the software to meet future testing needs.

Hardware – Based on an Intel processor the platform is available in three formats. Each format provides a different load and performance to fulfil scalable test requirements from 1 to many thousand calls/sessions distributed across multiple systems. It is scalable with a simple upgrade path throughout the testing life-cycle.

Software - Valid8 telecom test applications are built upon the ‘Protocol Engine’ Platform. This is a unique and powerful platform which offers a wide variety of emulation and load testing capabilities for customizable Telecom Network Testing Solutions for - Device and network emulators, Call traffic load generators, QoS testers (Quality of Service), Feature testers, Conformance testers, Protocol traffic analyzers, Negative testing

The Valid8 platform provides full protocol support for Mobile & VOIP Domains and includes a comprehensive testing suite supporting a broad range of protocols, including the following:

Network Security Testing

Valid8's cutting-edge technology delivers the tools necessary to validate new and emerging telecom products and software applications. Offering the broadest range of supported protocols and most cost-effective stress, feature, negative test and device emulation solutions in the industry the toolset can also be used to validate Network Security...

• Tools to generate realistic, stateful traffic to help detect vulnerabilities

• Pre-canned conformance test suites to verify the network protocol stack implementations are correct and protected

• Complements Denial Of Service (DOS) tools

• Lab or cloud based solutions to run traffic generation services from outside an organisation's own network

• Ability to spoof MAC/IP and geographic location of where the simulated data comes from

• Stress testing, loading past the specified limit of the device under test (DUT) to see where it breaks

• Ability to create and test with invalid / unusual flows / messages

• Same test environment and language for many protocols and domains

• Easily tied into automated environments for regression testing etc

• Benchmarking – no of calls and call statistics etc

• Simulate malicious phones and networks
