The best solution for testing your telecom environment
TOP Testing Suite from R Systems is an easy to use, automated test solution for end-to-end testing, evaluation, and validation of telecom services.With TOP Testing Suite, you can rapidly automate telecom protocol or software test plans, reduce regression testing time from days to minutes and enable continuous testing in line with Agile and DevOps practices. R Systems’ TOP Testing Suite uses an intuitive web-based graphical user interface (GUI) to enable you to efficiently define and manage a broad range of test plans, aggregate the results, and view the reports. Our comprehensive suite of testing tools is a modular, multi-protocol solution based on the JMeter platform, with open-source elements and custom developed R Systems plug-ins. With TOP Testing Suite, you can:
- Perform advanced functional, load, performance, regression, and stress testing in complex telco environments.
- Automatically execute various test types in different phases of system deployment.
- Dynamically test various protocol servers using the black-box approach.
TOP Testing Suite Features
R Systems’ TOP Testing Suite enables functional, load, performance, stress, stability, and configuration testing in complex telecom and IT environments. To help you get the most of it, our team of experts can also help with training, integration in your environment and the CI/CD pipeline, test creation based on your specifications, or Proofs of Concept.
TOP Testing Suite provides a full set of testing tools featuring all major industry-wide IT and telecom protocols. It allows extensive testing of BSS/OSS applications, SS7 and IP network elements and E2E telecom services.
CI/CD, DevOps, Cloud & 5G
With Jenkins as the most popular and widely adopted solution among CI tools used today by software teams, we have developed a plugin which allows the fast and easy integration of the TTS with Jenkins. This allows QA teams to automatically create and plan test cases and easily run tests in a Jenkins Pipeline CI project. CI/CD support, Jenkins integration, J-unit plugin support set a great roadmap for the DevOps model.
TOP Testing Suite is easy to use and provides an intuitive graphical user interface which doesn’t require programming skills and is faster than other GUI tools.
