Testing and diagnostics for IP & Carrier Ethernet network service activation using SAMTEST

Service Fulfillment – Activation & Diagnostics

Telco service fulfillment teams typically need to perform the following tasks when turning up IP & Carrier Ethernet services:

  • Validation of service definitions and SLAs
  • Benchmarking and stability testing
  • Diagnostics on failures

However when relying on NIDs to perform turn-ups, they risk an inadequate level of testing that potentially lead to faults when start using the services. NIDs do not support exhaustive testing and troubleshooting capabilities.

Also, many of the traditional tools need manual testing that is time-consuming and error prone. And often, lack of expertise on could be a bottleneck when diagnosing failures.

SAMTEST has been designed keeping these challenges in view and delivers substantial reduction in time and effort in performing these tasks with ease.

SAMTEST supports a full range of automated test libraries for:

  • IP and Carrier Ethernet and testing based on ITU-T Y.1564 and RFC 2544 methodologies
  • CE 2.0 Carrier Ethernet testing based on MEF CE 2.0 for comprehensive service verification including service attributes and bandwidth profile (as per MEF 10.2) and SLAs
  • TCP benchmarking (RFC 6349), UDP benchmarking
  • HTTP, VoIP and video on demand (VoD) testing

SAMTEST enables you to thoroughly test network services during turn-up to ensure that customers do not encounter unexpected failures in the field.
