Use case:

Automated performance testing for 5G SBA / SBI

Identify and isolate quality and performance issues for the 5G Service-Based Architecture (SBA). Accurately test control plane functions and Service Based Interfaces (SBIs) in the SBA

5G SBA / SBI

The 5G SBA brings new levels of dynamic flexibility and performance – and complexity. To support this evolution, you need a solution that enables accurate testing of control plane functions and SBIs in the SBA, with compliance to all standard and specified interfaces

Evolver provides a complete, flexible platform with rich reporting and automation functions to support CI/CD/CT practices, in multi-vendor networks. It offers HTTP/2 capabilities to enable the testing of different VNFs in the SBA, both in isolation and in combination. It supports 5G and 4G interfaces, such as Diameter, for validating hybrid and legacy networks.

5G SBA / SBI Testing

Automated testing and monitoring for the 5G SBA

A flexible solution for continuous test and integration programmes in the 5G SBA

Choosing the right testing platform is essential for your evolution towards 5G delivery models, and your ability to meet the high-performance demands of the 5G SBA. Evolver provides a complete, flexible solution, with rich reporting and automation functions to support continuous test and integration programmes.

Evolver is an agile test solution that helps operators and vendors to support continual evolution, and to identify and isolate quality and performance issues in the 5G SBA. It can be used in test and live environments for the proactive monitoring of service chains, and supports continuous delivery processes to ensure validation of new releases and updates, as well as live services.

Simulate HTTP/2 traffic for VNF testing

Evolver offers HTTP/2 capabilities for testing VNFs in the SBA, both in isolation and in combination to validate service chains

Full test automation for agile delivery

Evolver can be fully automated and integrated with your live or test environment, enabling alignment with agile delivery processes

Build custom state machines for SBA interface testing

Validate end-to-end performance of different SBA interfaces by emulating ‘real-world’ traffic

Automate KPI measurement and reporting

Automated reporting (pass, fail, warning) on KPI measures. Test any SBA VNF (PCF, UDM, AUSF, and more)

Evolver Product Overview

Functional testing, performance testing and active monitoring for mobile networks

A single comprehensive platform

Multiple solutions with centralised control

Evolver provides the flexibility to assure network deployments, updates and live services. Cloud-native and with full automation capabilities, rich reporting and an easy-to-use interface, it ensures the delivery of differentiated services for any network.

Functional testing for service validation

Functional testing can be performed to validate features and updates, and to support CI/CD schedules.

Flexibility allows any scenario to be modelled for proving service capabilities in multi-vendor networks.

Performance testing to demonstrate load and scale

Ensure services can scale in cloud environments and with load from real user agents, modelling real performance.

Evolver scales to emulate service growth, under network conditions, with dynamic capabilities for any scenario.

Active monitoring for QoS-driven, differentiated services

Distributed, active monitoring agents generate real traffic and KPIs, for continuous validation and assurance.

Assure differentiated and specific scenarios for key customers and services, with real-time awareness of service issues.
