Company: T-Mobile, Mobile Telecommunications
In order to test performance, T-Mobile required a simulation to be developed, of a 9 million customer load, spread across the front-end, batch processing and internet sub-systems.
AC completed the automated performance testing as per T-Mobile's specifications. This included testing T-Mobile's new mobile phone billing system. This system comprises a call centre management front-end, a billing engine and a facility for customers to view personal account data over the internet. Our team used a combination of Mercury Interactive LoadRunner software and Unix Shell Scripts to simulate the load of 9 million customers.
Our recommendations to senior executives formed a key part of their evaluation of the suitability of the new billing system for T-Mobile's core activities.
