The era of telco cloud infrastructure means that Network Equipment Manufacturers and CSPs must operate on the basis of continuous integration and delivery. Cloud-based infrastructure offers many advantages, such as rapid, elastic scaling of capacity, helping CSPs become more agile.
In this environment, it’s essential to automate as many processes as possible. Solver is a high-performance load generation, stress and feature testing solution that offers extensive automation of tasks, and spans technologies from 2G GSM, 3G UMTS, 4G LTE and IMS to 5G.
Solver offers powerful, multi-protocol functionality and helps ensure smooth deployment and troubleshooting for the entire Mobile Core and IMS networks, or isolated nodes within the network.
By simulating traffic from the Radio Access Networks (RAN) or nodes within the Mobile Core/IMS, it helps CSPs and network equipment manufacturers to simplify and automate performance analysis of new services, assert control over their networks, manage upgrade projects, and confirm compatibility between equipment from different vendors.
Simulate radio network behaviour at scale for the mobile core:
Solver is a comprehensive, single platform solution that accelerates R&D and deployment testing. Solver helps to ensure consistent release quality and compliance with protocols and interfaces from legacy and next generation networks
Solver is an efficient, multi-purpose solution that reduces complexity and delivers outstanding ROI.
High quality measurements can be produced quickly, repeatedly and easily with minimal use of time and resources.
Test conformance to detailed functional and performance criteria, including throughput, connectivity, scalability etc.
Helps reduce development cycles and launch products faster, meeting customer requirements and saving money.
Outstanding ease of use and powerful, automated test capabilities, no need for time consuming and complex scripting.
Solver can simulate multiple radio network technologies and generate high traffic volumes for flexible load testing. By combining a number of different emulated network nodes, you can refine the system under test from the entire Mobile Core to a single network element, in simple steps.
The same concept applies to IMS networks. Solver’s advanced subscriber modelling, leveraging a full-stack UE implementation for each simulated subscriber, can be used for sophisticated measurements for each network node. This dramatically simplifies qualitative performance analysis for equipment manufacturers and CSPs, in multi-vendor environments.
A wide range of traffic patterns, including voice, messaging and data applications, can be created to run simultaneously or in sequence in order to simulate real world traffic scenarios. The flexibility allows anything from manual testing of basic features to fully automated load testing to be performed.
Solver can be fully automated and integrated with test automation frameworks, fully aligned with telco cloud deployment programmes and agile, DevOps release cycles. It can also be deployed as VNF(s) into the NFVI, with support for OpenStack, KVM and VMware.
Solver adds value at every step, from launch to each enhancement, extension or upgrade, with rich automated regression test capabilities. The flexible simulation and load generation features ensure that products meet the reliability and scalability criteria that they must deliver from launch.
Crucially, Solver allows testing of multiple network domains and mobile technologies in parallel.
Solver can be rapidly deployed and is easy to use, which simplifies product validation cycles and reduces costs.
Highly scalable, Solver ensures that peak performance thresholds can easily meet the most exacting requirements.
Solver is a proven, award-winning solution that adds value throughout product life cycles from launch to each subsequent enhancement, extension or upgrade. The flexible simulation and load generation capabilities ensure that products meet the reliability and scalability criteria that they must deliver from launch.
Solver has a full-stack implementation per simulated UE, which provides highly granular control of subscriber service patterns and traffic modelling. Solver can be rapidly deployed and is easy to use, which simplifies product validation cycles and reduces costs. Tests can be automated, accelerating product verification and time to market.
From innovation, to validation and smooth operation, our solutions help operators and equipment vendors deliver outstanding services and performance to their customers.
