Stinga SS7 Simulator

Protocol Tools

Utel Stinga SS7 Simulator

A protocol simulator and traffic generator for SS7oTDM, SS7oIP (SIGRAN), and SIP-T networks. Generates real network traffic to test new or updated network services for interoperability and/or errors under development.

STINGA Protocol Simulators simulate and generate realistic network traffic. It is an essential tool for network providers in validating new services, versions, or products for Quality of Service (QoS), conformance, and user experience.

Stinga SS7 Simulator
STINGA SS7 Simulator is a cost-efficient test tool and performs SS7 protocol simulation over TDM and IP.


The simulator supports conformance-, functional-, regression-, mobile-, and load testing, from prototyping-stage to final product. Testing new services, products, or versions early in the development phase saves time, prevents errors, and ensures interoperability between network elements. When commercially released and distributed, all new network elements are verified to function in a real network environment and to deliver on its premises.

Generate various traffic conditions

STINGA SS7 Simulator can generate both real network conditions and custom traffic towards specific or all parts of a network. It can also regenerate problems or irregularities that have already occurred in a real network environment. This makes error tracking and searching easier, and customer experience can easily be tested to ensure high quality.

A Conformance Test Suit Framework is included with all STINGA Protocol Simulators. The framework contains a large number of test scripts and templates to simulate calls, data traffic etc. towards one or several parts of a network. Test scripts and templates can easily be customized for specific tests in or between network elements.
