Tier-1 operator in the US prepares for migration of all its applications to cloud and 5G network technology. Migration to cloud, virtualization and 5G network are important network changes where extensive testing is mandatory to ensure that performance is not affected. To reduce operational costs and time to market, the client required automated testing of all its products.
R Systems solution
The client selected R Systems automated testing services performed using the R Systems own telecom test tool: TOP Testing Suite.
The following applications and elements have been tested:
- Bare metal and cloud versions of all products deployed in the operator ecosystem
- Core network applications: HLR, HSS, EIR, PCRF, Voice Mail, GMLC
- Protocols covered: SS7 (MAP, CAMEL), Diameter, LDAP, SOAP, SSH, SIP
Solution highlights and client benefits
R Systems TOP Testing Suite has a wide coverage of telecom protocols, including SIP, Diameter and SS7, allowing simulation for most of telco applications.
Automated testing using the R Systems telecom testing solution helped the operator achieve 40% reduction of deployment costs as compared to manual testing and a short time to market through fast, efficient and reliable validation of product changes in context of 5G and migration to cloud.
