Scenario Editor in action

The Scenario Editor is a visual tool for building call flow scenarios for use with the Scenario Simulator.

The screenshot to the right shows the Scenario Editor in action scripting an originating call scenario for a VPN-style application that is querying the HLR for location information of the called party.

The Scenario Editor is parameterised by protocol schema libraries that encode the rules of the protocol, such as the Application Context Names (ACNs) available, the operations and responses supported by each ACN, and so on.

You use the Scenario Editor to:

  • Define network roles and dialogs for use in a signaling scenario.

  • Create operation call flows including request, response, and error operations.

  • Define the parameters of each operation. You simply choose the parameters to include, fill in fields and select values from pull-down lists.

  • Explore protocols with the built-in schema browser. For example you can browse the ACNs to see what operations and responses are supported, or you can choose an operation/response and see which ACNs use it.

  • Edit multiple scenarios at the same time, and easily copy data between them.

  • Visually display and correct problems with a scenario before running it in the Scenario Simulator. The Scenario Editor monitors your progress and provides constant feedback about the conformance of your scenario to the requirements of the protocols used.

  • Export scenarios to an image file for use in presentations or documentation.

Tip Read the Scenario Editor User Guide for more details about creating signalling use cases with the Scenario Editor.
