Mobileum expands developing solutions partnership to offer full 5G lifecycle testing
Mobileum Inc., a provider of analytics-based roaming and network services, telco security, risk management, and testing and monitoring solutions, has expanded its partnership with Developing Solutions. The latter is a privately-held network testing firm that focuses on testing 3G/4G/5G wireless and IMS core interfaces.
The expanded agreement aims to enable the integration of Developing Solutions’ dsTest product with Mobileum’s Active Testing platform SITE to provide telecom operators end-to-end testing and verification solutions for the entire 5G network and service lifecycle, from lab to production. The solution seamlessly integrates into CI/CD pipeline processes, and serves the lab with continuous testing, while automating active service testing within the same platform.
In the context of this partnership, Mobileum will also act as a sales channel for the dsTest product, leveraging its global customer footprint to expand Developing Solutions go-to-market reach and offering telecom operators a single integrated solution to test and rollout new 5G services.
The integration of the two technology stacks will allow automated testing in a CI/CD environment, relying on Developing Solutions extensive 5G core emulation capabilities combined with Mobileum’s Active Testing APIs and 5G test automation capabilities. One of the key benefits of this solution is that it is fully automated and facilitates the development and deployment of new tests with high flexibility, allowing users to easily address any 5G test scenario, which translates into faster service launches and lower operational costs. This solution will interoperate with Mobileum’s Active Intelligence ecosystem and its broader portfolio of actionable analytics solutions helping to strengthen its global value proposition.
“As the introduction of 5G standalone and network slicing is set to accelerate, the ability for telecom operators to fully automate the testing of new services and applications will be critical to increase their business agility and support new revenue streams. Our joint solution provides end-to-end testing and verification utilising CI/CD pipelining from the lab into production, helping to continuously identify and resolve potential issues before they impact the customer,” says Dennis Foster, who is responsible for sales & marketing at Developing Solutions.
“We are excited to strengthen our partnership with Developing Solutions. Our expanded offering provides a customisable, end-to-end 5G application testing platform that easily integrates with other automation tools and reduces operational costs by enabling modern, continuous integration and delivery with a DevOps approach. With the advent of 5G, operators must adapt to market changes more quickly while maintaining the highest standard of service performance. Our joint solution will support our customers’ need to build, test, deploy and validate software applications and services throughout their entire lifecycle,” comments Goce Talaganov, Mobileum’s head of testing and monitoring Products.
Mobileum’s Active Testing is an end-to-end testing solution designed to support 5G deployments, providing exclusive service performance and quality-of-experience insights. It is a key enabler for new 5G services, allowing operators to meet the highest 5G data rates and latency requirements, while ensuring extreme reliability and agility. The platform is built and optimized to test, monitor, troubleshoot and benchmark services 24/7, and is prepared to scale as 5G continues to evolve.
