Performance tests for 5G SBA

PureLoad – automate testing for the Service-Based Architecture

PureLoad is an agile test solution that helps operators and vendors to identify and isolate quality and performance issues for the 5G Service-Based Architecture. It can be used in test and live environments for proactive monitoring of service chains.

The 5G Service-Based Architecture brings new levels of dynamic flexibility and performance, backed by the promise of greater system and vendor interoperability. It depends on agile interconnection of different service nodes, orchestrated into service chains.

  • HTTP/2 traffic simulation
  • Full test automation
  • Build custom state machines for SBA interface testing
A flexible solution to support continuous test and integration programmes.

To support this evolution, you need a test solution that enables you to accurately test control plane functions and Service Based Interfaces (SBIs) in the SBA. PureLoad provides a complete, flexible solution, with rich reporting and automation functions to support continuous test and integration programmes.

Functional testing for SBA VNFs
PureLoad offers HTTP/2 capabilities which enable different VNFs in the SBA to be tested, both in isolation and in combination to validate service chains. PureLoad also supports 5G and 4G interfaces, such as Diameter, allowing hybrid and legacy networks to be validated.
Fully automated and integrated

PureLoad can be fully automated and integrated with your live or test environment, enabling alignment with your agile delivery processes. It supports your continuous delivery processes, ensuring continuous validation of new releases and updates, as well as live services. Rich reporting provides instant results and insights for improvement programmes.

  • KPI performance measurement
  • REST interface for integration with automation platforms
  • Automated reporting (pass, fail, warning) on KPI measures
  • CI / CD support aligned with frequent software update processes
  • Detailed logging and reporting
  • Presentation of results on Jenkins, Grafana etc.
  • Deploy as virtual machine or containers
  • Test any SBA VNF (PCF, UDM, AUSF, etc)
