As new technologies enter the market, network providers have to cope with new levels of complexity. At the same time, interworking emerging technology into existing networks has become business-critical.
SEGRON test automation solutions ensure optimal service quality and improved time-to-market for next-generation 5G and IoT services.
SEGRON's Beyond End2End® Testing Approach
SEGRON ATF provides feature-rich, high performance verification, finally offering players in the telecom ecosystem a full testing solution.
With rapid network and device verification, SEGRON’s ATF ensures the highest possible quality without sacrificing efficiency.
- Turnkey solution with day 1 availability and immediate results
- Integrates seamlessly into existing quality assurance systems
- Real-time testing while providing access to the systems under test
- Analysis of audio, signalling traces, system log and customer data records
- All out-of-the box devices, including iOS and Android smartphones, tablets and IoT devices
The SEGRON ATF is designed to go Beyond End2End® to offer signalling data and other protocol-level information about your network as it is being tested.
- Get more in-depth test reports
- Find root causes more quickly
SEGRON’s ATF is designed to go deeper, offering users test data that covers the space between your endpoints, e.g. signalling patterns, etc. The result is that it can uncover errors and potential service issues that would otherwise remain hidden, even in cases where all relevant tests seem to pass.
Signalling Protocol Analysis
Signalling trace analysis is essential for high-quality testing. The ATF Signalling Protocol Analysis feature is the direct result of decades of proven field experience in software development and signalling network design. It enables users to analyse and verify the entire 3GPP and IETF protocol stack on a bit level. The ATF easily analyses all protocols decoded by Wireshark.
The ATF can easily analyse tones, speech path, and announcements on all automated end-devices including, but not limited to smartphones, SIP phones, and legacy phones. Tones can be analyzed in connection and pre-connection state (e.g. ring-back tones, dial-tones, etc.). Voice path verification is performed with ITU (International Telecommunications Union) compliant voice samples.
Man-Machine Language (MML) Interface Automation
The ATF integrates with the MML syntax of all major network equipment manufacturers and is designed to integrate with the MML and GUI (graphical user interface) configuration interface for all major IT and telco equipment manufacturers. This feature enables flexible configuration and internal log analysis to ensure the highest possible test quality.
Protocol Analyser / Centralised Monitoring System Automation
Wireshark, or any other monitoring system offering API.
Automated Document Analysis
The ATF is able of verifing PDF documents, such as customer invoices, and orders.
Automated collection and analysis of CDR/EDR (call data records/event data records) enables the ATF to verify accurate customer billing.
Mobile Devices &
Application Test Automation
When it comes to mobile device automation, the SEGRON ATF covers the following use cases for universal Android and iOS device operations:
Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Capabilities
OSS/BSS functionalities have a tremendous impact on the
average telco’s ability to protect revenue and roll out new service offerings.
OSS (Operations Support Systems)
SEGRON's ATF enables automated testing for back-office operations, such as:
* Service activation
* Bandwidth management
This functionality helps users within the telco operation to design, activate, and assure service for new offerings, such as VoIP network connections in a new region or a new roaming partnership with another operator.
BSS (Business Support Systems)
The ATF integrates with your CRM to enable automated testing for:
* Invoice generation
* Bill collection
* Payment processing
* And anything else required for the customer-facing aspects of order fulfillment and billing
The SEGRON ATF is integrated with your CRM system in addition to the usual test elements, like out-of-the-box smartphones. Testers can automatically perform calls and use data with the phones, verify that the voice and data usage is being recorded properly and ensure that the data is being transmitted for future invoice generation.
More about Telecommunications
Let’s state the obvious for a second: telecommunications networks produce a ton of data, especially when they’re being tested. For years, much of this data
