Online PR News – 06-February-2013 – Atlanta, GA – MSys has taken its MSys Test Automation Suite (MTAS) to next level by releasing complete end-to-end test automation of OSS/BSS applications for a Tier-One Telecom Service Provider. MSys recently automated testing of a complex environment consisting of Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Integrated Access Device (IAD), Integrated Service Router (ISR), Customer Facing Applications, database, EFM, in-house tools, and switches as a part of OSS/BSS application framework using its in-house Test Automation Suite - (MTAS). MTAS' plug-in based architecture facilitated this level of automation of testing in a heterogeneous production environment for the Telecom Service Provider market.

Management of a public network using the OSS/BSS applications is a challenging task owing to the dependencies of public on communication and devices that are provisioned and supported. Test Automation of OSS and BSS are at high priority as they are the primary lifeline support of the Telecom Network.

The major challenges faced during automation of the OSS/BSS applications were:
• Telecom Enterprise Applications are complex, distributed, and heterogeneous.
• Integration with Third Party Applications is particularly challenging.
• Finally, testing in a live environment is usually the biggest hurdle in automation.
• Frequent upgrades of OSS/BSS applications are inevitable since majority of these apps will be used by end users, which requires lot more regression testing for every release/upgrade.

The Tier-One Telecom Provider was in need of a comprehensive Test Automation Solution to mitigate the above stated major challenges.

MSys provided an End-to-End Automation Solution using MTAS by verifying every layer of the application from the Web UI, Middleware, and Backend Systems in a single test environment. MSys developed this Test Automation Solution to provide seamless integration of test results across multiple applications in a Complex Telecom Test Environment.
