Comprehensive Service Verification, Equipment Validation and Compliance Testing during Service Design
Telco service design teams typically need to perform the following tasks when validating service design.
Network equipment validation for real world traffic and SLAs
Network benchmarking, stability and scalability testing
Validation of service definitions and optimizing equipment configuration
Service compliance testing
Regression testing after upgrades to network elements
SAMTEST has been designed keeping these tasks 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
MEF 3.0 and CE 2.0 Carrier Ethernet testing for comprehensive service verification including service attributes and bandwidth profile (as per MEF 10.3) and SLAs.
TCP benchmarking (RFC 6349), UDP benchmarking
HTTP, VoIP and video on demand (VoD) testing
SAMTEST enables you to thoroughly test the equipment and network and ensure that there are no surprises in the field. Also, when changes and upgrades to networks are needed, SAMTEST helps ensure that the service attributes and SLAs are intact.
