Marben writes on IMS testing in European Communications

March 2010

IMS open standards are a tremendous opportunity for carriers to leverage multivendor market offers to reduce costs for building their IMS network and getting a richer services portfolio. However, the resulting heterogeneity and the open modular architecture of IMS results in a complexity which needs to be carefully addressed all along the implementation of IMS. Testing as it is the last step to validate products or whole networks is then a key challenge in the successful roll out of IMS networks and delivery of multimedia services.

Marben Products released its HSS Emulator to help carriers and equipment vendors to answer this testing challenge. Aimed at being used at the early stage of development by equipment manufacturers, as well as in the latest stages of deployment at carriers, HSS Emulator is a tool designed to reduce development and deployment of IMS services and networks. Lightweight and easy to use, it secures your development and deployment by enabling you to set up an IMS testing infra-structure for a small investment and operation cost.

Read more on how emulator tools like HSS Emulator can help overcome the IMS testing complexity in European Communications.

Abbreviations

ASN.1
Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) is a language that describes data structures to enable communication among heterogeneous systems. It is widely used in telecommunications for billing, network management, voice over IP, secure transactions and other functions. In UMTS networks, ASN.1 is used to encode exchanged messages. An encoding/decoding system is therefore implemented on each terminal and network infrastructure (RNC, Node B, Core Network), which requires ASN.1 products to meet specific performance and memory allocation specifications of each type of equipment concerned.
BSC
A Base Station Controller. A BSC is a switching unit that acts as an interface between the network and the BTSs it controls.
BTS
A Base Transceiver Station. A BTS is used for transmission and reception in a GSM mobile phone system.
NodeB
The equivalent of a BTS in UMTS technology.
OMC
An Operation and Maintenance Center. An OMC is used to manage GSM network elements.
RNC
A Radio Network Controller. An RNC is the UMTS equivalent of a BSC.
UMTS
Universal Mobile Transmission System.
