Tests the Functions, Features and Performance of Mission Critical Communication services
Polaris Networks' MCX Tester tests Mission Critical Application servers to verify compliance to
functional specifications and performance of Push-to-talk (MC-PTT), Data (MC-Data) and Video (MC-Video) over an
LTE network. The MCX Tester emulates Mission Critical Clients (MCC) along with LTE devices and base station to test
an MCX server over the S1-MME and S1-U interfaces. It supports simulation of standards operations and procedures
associated with MCC clients for PTT, Data and Video and as defined in 3GPP Release 14 & 15 specifications.
The MCX Tester provides a framework for users to define their test scenarios for functional and performance testing
and includes a library of pre-scripted test cases. The pre-scripted test cases included in the MCX Tester package
are based on ETSI 2nd MCPTT Plugtests and normal & negative test scenarios defined by Polaris Networks.
The MCX tester is useful for:
A) Vendors of MC-PTT, MC-Data, MC-Video systems to test their implementation for compliance to 3GPP specifications and the performance of their application servers.
B) System Integrators and Network Operators during vendor selection and pre-deployment to verify if the MC-PTT,
MC-Data, MC-Video servers meet functional, performance and inter-operability requirements.
Key Features of the Polaris MCX Tester:
- Single test tool for testing signaling and media plane of Mission Critical Push to Talk (MCPTT), MCVideo and MCData
- Simulates a large number of Mission Critical Clients to stress test MCPTT, MC-Data, MC-Video Application server
- GUI to configure test bed and create test scenarios with easy "drag-and-drop" operations Includes large number of pre-scripted tests based on ETSI Plugtests
