MTP2 Signaling Tester

Test Harness & Test Suite for the Validation of MTP2 Implementations.



MTP2 Conformance Test Architecture




The MTP2 Signaling Tester is a test environment for the MTP2 signaling specification as defined by the ITU-T and ANSI standards. It is a SAFIRE based test harness able to run pre-defined ACATS test scenarios against MTP2 test objects in a controlled & deterministic manner.


The SAFIRE graphical editor allows new scenarios to be created or existing scenarios to be modified using the MTP2 interface library (API), which defines the MTP2 messages and parameters. The test harness includes a MTP2/SS7 protocol analyzer for on-line capture and decode of the signaling in real-time both during tests and as a stand-alone tracer for live systems.


The MTP2 Signaling Tester is suitable for conformance tests, functional tests, factory tests & acceptance tests.


Key Features
  • Fully integrated, complete test environment for MTP2
  • ISO conformant test scenarios giving framework coverage of MTP2
  • Graphical development environment & libraries for creating new MTP2 tests
  • Compatible with ACATS MTP2 Professional Test Suite (not included)
  • Expandable for TCAP, SCCP, ISUP, MTP3
  • MTP2 Reference Test Object


Network Architecture




The MTP2 Signaling Tester was designed to be a complete solution for MTP2 signaling test requirements.  It has the key components:

  • MTP2 Test Harness including MTP2 codec
  • ACATS MTP2 Framework Test Suite
  • MTP2 Interface Library
  • MTP2 Protocol Analyzer

The MTP2 test harness uses the powerful SAFIRE environment to provide advanced features like

  • Graphical editing (flow diagram representation)
  • Automated execution of test campaigns
  • Test reports with statistics (also HTML)
  • Real-time, high performance protocol analysis

Using the MTP2 Signaling Tester, test objects can be accurately, reliably and comfortably validated for compliance with ITU-T standard Q.781.  It is suitable for manufacturers, network operators and service providers to address all stages of the development cycle, regression testing through to type approval, acceptance testing & certification (note: requirements may be country/organization specific).


The ACATS MTP2 Framework Test Suite includes test scenarios for the validation of SS7 network components by simulating the controlled interaction with data link layers.



SAFIRE Editor Sample


The framework test suite contains a selection of important scenarios, which can be used to confirm the basic functionality of a MTP2 test object. They are also an excellent basis for customization and enhancement according to specific needs.


An upgrade is available for the ACATS MTP2 Professional Test Suite, which offers extensive coverage of the MTP2 signaling test requirements.


MTP2 Reference Test Object


For reference a virtual test harness is included, that allows test scenarios to be run off-line against a software-only test object under controlled conditions.  The test harness uses a software bus to replace the physical connection and an accurate software model as the test object.  Normally fully automated execution of tests is possible, but in some specific cases the test object allows/requires user interaction during the tests.
