5G Service-based Network Test Solution

MAPS™ 5G service-based interface network emulators can emulate elements such as AMF, SMF, UPF, AUSF, UDM, EIR, and SMSF on the 5G core network.

5G Service-based Network Test Solution

Overview

5G System as a service-based architecture, includes a set of Network Functions (NFs) providing services as defined in 3GPP TS 23.501. The service-based interfaces use HTTP/2 protocol with JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) as the application layer serialization protocol.

Supports error tracking, regression testing, load testing. It can run pre-defined test scenarios against 5G interface test objects in a controlled and deterministic manner. Easy to use script syntax allows users to create conformance test cases based on their test plan.

Key Features

Services use REST APIs based on HTTP and JSON data format

  • Supports TLS and TCP transports
  • Supports scripted call generation and automated call reception
  • Supports customization of call flow and message templates using Script Editor
  • Ready-to-use scripts for quick testing
  • Provides Call Statistics and Events Status
  • Emulates Multiple Subscribers using CSV Profiles
  • Automation, Remote access, and Schedulers to run tests 24/7
