PCRF Functional Tester

The LTE PCRF Functional Tester provides a wrap-around test solution for the Policy and Charging Rules Function by emulating all the LTE network elements surrounding the PCRF(System Under Test). The PCRF Functional Tester emulates LTE Core Network entities such as the PGW (PCEF), PCRF, BBERF and Application Function. It tests the S7/Gx, Rx, S9 and Gxx interfaces of the PCRF.

The PCRF Functional Tester tests the correctness of an implementation of LTE Policy and Charging Rules Function in accordance with 3GPP TS 23.203 (PCC), TS 29.214 (Rx), TS 29.212 (Gx), TS 29.215 (S9), TS 29.213 (QoS),TS 29.816 (PCRF failure and restoration) and other relevant Release 8, Release 9 and Release 10 standards.

Polaris Networks has defined the functional test cases for PCRF testing.
