NETSCOUT delivers core network test and validation functions to ensure the successful deployment of new networks, network expansions, or software upgrades. Spectra2 solutions address the following applications:
Maximize Productivity with Spectra2’s World Class Ease-of-Use:
Core network test has never been easier than with NETSCOUT Spectra2 award winning multi-user GUI. It is the front end to a deeply automated set of functional, load, and conformance testing applications that can all be accessed through a single, user-friendly GUI. With this level of ease-of-use, Spectra2 enables customers to maximize their productivity.
Core Network Test from Legacy to Next Generation
E2E testing frequently requires multiple platforms, especially when testing from IP to TDM. Spectra2 has the power in both a portable PC and lab computing footprint to test IP and TDM-based signaling and media protocols in a single system.
Protocol Rich Test Environment
With the growth in LTE and IMS, the Diameter protocol is gaining in popularity. Spectra2 provides the capability to test AAA, Services, and Policy management functions including Diameter Routing Agents (DRA) for both functionality and capacity, while providing full support of legacy TCAP-based protocols. This rich Diameter functionality complements the robust suite of protocols that span SIP, H.323, SIGTRAN, ISUP, TCAP, MEGACO/H.248, RTP, and many more.
Lab to Field
The Spectra2 Core Network Test Solution is a software application that runs on multiple form factors to accommodate specific test requirements. If in the lab, Spectra2 can be configured for high volume signaling and load testing. The same software can be used in a PC footprint to capitalize on field portability. Staff can be trained on a single test tool and use it in the lab and the field.
Spectra2 has rich element simulation capabilities with deep protocol support, including AAA & TDM and SIGTRAN elements, TDM/IP MGW’s, soft-switches, IP/ISDN PBX’s, HLR/HSS, signaling/access GW, Policy Nodes, Charging Gateways, x-CSCF, HSS, and more.
