With PureLoad you get the ability to simulate a large number of users or other traffic types that are needed in order to secure scalability and performance of an RCS or IMS Network or Node.
PureLoad has been used for IMS verification purposes since more than 10 years.
With PureLoad you get support to verify a large set of the functionality available in IMS and RCS, Rich Communications Suite. Full-stack simulations can be made using many of the protocols available for IMS, ranging from SIP, MSRP, and Diameter, to more specialized protocols.
With PureTest you get the ability to create complex test cases for functional tests. Tests can of course be automated. Tests developed with PureTest can be re-used with PureLoad forming a base for performance tests.
For load different usage models and load functions can be applied simulating a large number of simultaneous users mirroring live traffic patterns. This enables the possibility to perform realistic load-, stress-, and other characteristics-test in an unrivaled way.
Using SIP you can test call handling in an IMS system. Both end-points (UE) as well as server can be simulated making it easy to build cases for testing different traffic flows.
Simulations can be done on a system level (for example using Gm and Ic interfaces)
or on node level testing signalling for one specific IMS node.
There is also support for some specialized tests like SIP forking. For RCS services there is support for presence, chat, or instant messaging testing for Presence Server or Message Store, and for test using RTP-media.
For UE simulation there is functionality available for HTTP Digest AKA based authentication.
For traffic from other nodes there is support for a number of Diameter protocols for client- and server-side simulation. As an example you can use our Diameter Gx implementation for testing a PCRF node or a CSCF node.
Read more about our simulation support on our web describing the protocol support that is implemented for PureLoad and PureTest.
At PureLoad Software we work with supplying load test tools and solutions. Independent if you work with test on a node level or on a system level (several nodes together) we can supply from individual tools to fully working environments that suits your specific testing needs.
The best of it all is that it is both easy and quick to set up a test environment and get the first tests going.
