The SMS SVP enables wireless service providers to test an end user’s service quality experience with (SMS) Short Messaging Services. It validates text message transmission quality and performance when sending mobile-to-mobile or email-to-mobile. For each SMS test, it records detailed information regarding send and receive times plus latency, as well as subscriber, mobile phone and network infrastructure information about the service. Real-time results reporting provide operators with full visibility into their network’s current performance, enabling them to respond rapidly to issues. Using this information, operators can enhance performance for greater profitability.
The SMS SVP provides test profiles to validate a variety of SMS scenarios. These fully parameterized and extensible profiles can be customized to let operators address complex or operator-specific test requirements. In addition to the fully automated test mode, the solution offers an interactive mode for validating network modifications prior to deployment or for troubleshooting network or service issues. For testing that requires HLR interaction, the SMS SVP enables access and control of external network nodes via custom integration or telnet-based programs.
