  • LBS Load Tester

The Location Based Services Tester (LBS Tester) provides an end-to-end test bed for Mobile Network Operators and Network Equipment Manufacturers to verify the accurate implementation of the location services network.

The LBS Tester tests that the Location Server (System Under Test) is correctly executing the positioning procedures over the control plane and/or the user plane of that network. As the number of SETs (SUPL Enabled Terminals) simulated by the LBS Tester increases with increasing demand for location services over the LTE User Plane, the Location Server must execute LPP (Location Positioning Protocol) procedures over the SUPL (Secure User Plane Protocol) with success, for normal signaling, or without, for failure scenarios. Again, to test the same for the LTE Control Plane requires the Location Server to execute LPP procedures over LCS-AP protocol.

Features  

  • Simulates a large number of SETs and UEs to generate heavy load on the Location Server
  • Tests all types of positioning methods, such as AGPS, OTDOA and ECID
  • Supports roaming SUPL procedures
  • Supports SUPL procedures in Proxy and Non-Proxy mode
  • Allows tests over the Control Plane and the User Plane from a single test system
  • Saves test logs and snapshots of different metrics automatically
  • Simulates both normal signaling scenarios as well as abnormal ones, or failure scenarios
  • Provides a scripting interface for integration with existing test automation framework
