Mu Test Suite Selected by Chunghwa Telecom to Improve Subscriber Experience

By Stefanie Mosca, TMCnet Web Editor

Mu Dynamics, Inc., a provider in testing next-generation network services, has announced that Chunghwa Telecom (News - Alert) Laboratories, a telecom service provider in Taiwan has selected the Mu Test Suite to develop and deploy new services, ensure the security of its services and resolve customer issues on the network.

Chunghwa Telecom selected Mu Dynamics (News - Alert) due to its approach of leveraging actual traffic pulled from the service provider’s network to quickly identify and resolve problems with a given service. This approach enables Chunghwa Telecom to test how a new service functions in the live production environment prior to deployment, and ensure the overall security of the service.

In addition, it allows the service provider to quickly identify and fix any potential customer issues once the service is deployed. The result is that Chunghwa Telecom is able to innovate with confidence by delivering an outstanding customer experience with fewer issues and increased reliability.

Chunghwa Telecom is using the Mu Test Suite, which offers a comprehensive approach to security testing, by employing several product modules to ensure the security and resilience of its NGN services including protocol fuzzing, denial of service “DoS” and published vulnerability analysis “PVA”.

For live issues in the field a security alert is triggered by any IPS device and packets are captured along with the suspect traffic. The traffic is then imported into the Mu Test Suite where it is statefully replayed in the test lab to reproduce the alert. Once the problem has been targeted and fixed, it is then re-tested and validated.

“Chunghwa Telecom is recognized worldwide as an innovator that adopts new and exciting technologies,” said Dave Kresse (News - Alert), CEO of Mu Dynamics. “With the Mu Test Suite, Chunghwa can now statefully recreate live field issues using actual service traffic and identify security and reliability bugs prior to deployment, enabling increased reliability and a better overall experience for its customers.”
