NCover Desktop & Visual Studio Update

ncover_5_5_blog_twitterWe are pleased to announce the release of NCover Desktop 5.5.  This latest version is focused on significantly improving the ease, speed and flexibility of collecting and using code coverage in Visual Studio.

NCover makes collecting and managing coverage easier than ever before right from Visual Studio. After installation, activate NCover’s Coverage Collection in Visual Studio and we will take care of the rest. No special test runner, no complicated configuration.

NCover allows you to collect coverage directly within Visual Studio without automated tests or a test runner. Once you turn on Coverage Collection and run or debug your application in Visual Studio, we will collect and report all captured code coverage.

NCover is pre-configured and ready to capture code coverage on the NUnit testing framework when executed in Test Explorer, Testdriven.net and Resharper in your Visual Studio solution. Use your favorite test runner in Visual Studio 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013 & 2015 and collect coverage without changing your workflow.

NCover is also pre-configured and ready to capture code coverage on the integrated Test Explorer running tests build with MSTest framework. From early test runners like QtAgent to the most recent VsTest.ExecutionEngine, you’ll be capturing coverage with zero configuration.

Unique to the NCover Visual Studio extension, NCover has the ability to accumulate coverage as you individually run, add to or modify your tests, including manual testing. NCover monitors for changes and adds those to any pre-existing coverage you may have collected from earlier tests. You can easily set and reset testing sessions with a single click.

NCover has been completely re-engineered to run faster, lighter and with reduced usage of system resources in Visual Studio. Now, you can run thousands of tests without slowing down.

Oracle Enables Communications Service Providers to Transform Business with Cloud-based Network Services

Oracle Database News - Mon, 02/22/2016 - 10:00
Press Release Oracle Enables Communications Service Providers to Transform Business with Cloud-based Network Services Oracle unifies network and IT service delivery to accelerate cloud deployment of core network functions

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Feb 22, 2016

As communication service providers (CSPs) continue to evolve their networks to take advantage of new technologies to deploy innovative services such as voice over LTE (VoLTE) and voice over wi-fi (VoWiFi), they require agile, cost-effective solutions to address their customers’ digital lifestyle expectations. To achieve these goals, CSPs are shifting more of their core network functions to the cloud. The latest version of Oracle Communications Network Service Orchestration Solution, accelerates this transition by providing key service orchestration capabilities that enable CSPs to rapidly design and automatically deploy, scale, heal and terminate services in the network core.  

The solution is part of the Oracle Communications intelligent orchestration framework, which helps guide CSPs in their adoption of Network Function Virtualization technology and helps them maximize its benefits. The framework gathers and analyzes network performance information, evaluates the network’s operation against predefined policies and business rules, and can trigger the appropriate action to automatically modify the behavior of services, network functions, and virtualized infrastructure – in a closed loop manner.

“CSPs are looking to NFV as a means to both transform their networks and to generate new revenues from the increased agility enabled by network virtualization,” said Dana Cooperson, Research Director at Analysys Mason. “For them to be successful, they must take a holistic orchestration approach, based on a modular set of orchestration functions, that facilitates an increasingly dynamic, virtualized network and integrates with end-to-end business and operations processes. Such an approach, of which Oracle Network Service Orchestration Solution is one example, will best position CSPs to realize the full business benefits of their NFV investment.”

CSPs may use new capabilities within Oracle Communications Network Service Orchestration Solution to:

  • Simplify the deployment of virtualized IMS networks that cost-effectively support a new generation of services, such as VoLTE and VoWiFi.
  • Automatically configure customer and network traffic flows, through integration with the OpenDaylight SDN Controller, to scale services up and down while balancing the network load for improved service quality.

  • Optimally configure network services on the underlying hardware – specifically the organization and deployment of virtual CPUs, memory distribution and disk usage – through integration with industry-leading virtual infrastructure managers.
  • Support a broad range of third party virtual network functions by providing native VNF management capabilities to orchestrate VNFs that may or may not have their own VNF Manager – allowing CSPs choice and flexibility in VNF selection for network deployment.

“As CSPs evolve their networks to take advantage of cloud technologies, they must consider how to rapidly introduce virtual network functions while ensuring services are delivered with consistent, prescribed levels of quality,” said Doug Suriano, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Communications. “This new release of Oracle Communications Network Service Orchestration Solution enables CSPs to deploy and manage network functions optimally to ensure, for example, that premium customer services are guaranteed to be configured on appropriate resources from end to end.”

Oracle Communications Network Service Orchestration Solution is designed to work with upstream operational systems to help CSPs quickly transition to the delivery of real-time, cloud-based services over virtual and hybrid networks. Oracle’s solution for the end-to-end delivery of contemporary cloud-based services includes common, standards-based modeling of products, services and resources across Oracle’s integrated architecture for lifecycle service orchestration and network service orchestration. This productized, end to end capability provides CSPs the service agility and automated operations to begin to truly transform their business, not just their network.

Oracle will showcase this solution as part of the “Offer and Orchestrate NaaS over the Elastic Network” demonstration in Hall 3, Stand 3B20 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 22 – 25, 2016.

Oracle Enables Mobile Operators to Securely Increase Network Coverage and Capacity Using Wi-Fi and the Internet

Oracle Database News - Mon, 02/22/2016 - 09:03
Press Release Oracle Enables Mobile Operators to Securely Increase Network Coverage and Capacity Using Wi-Fi and the Internet New functionality enables operators to use Wi-Fi to improve indoor voice coverage and offer Wi-Fi-based voice, video, and rich messaging services

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Feb 22, 2016

Consumer use of mobile devices continues to expand at a breakneck pace, which makes it challenging for mobile network operators to deliver the coverage and capacity required for a high quality customer experience. To address this challenge, Oracle today announced that Oracle Communications Mobile Security Gateway provides new ways to help communications service providers (CSPs) cost effectively expand network coverage and increase capacity by safely and securely incorporating Wi-Fi and the internet into the mobile core. In addition, the newly introduced support for Wi-Fi calling allows CSPs to leverage Wi-Fi to address problematic indoor voice coverage problems to provide customers with a consistent mobile network experience even in areas that were previously dead zones in the network.

Oracle Communications Mobile Security Gateway enables CSPs to:

  • Improve indoor voice coverage: With Wi-Fi calling, CSPs can use Wi-Fi as an access network for the mobile core to enable voice and video calling, as well as rich messaging
  • Relieve congestion in the macro network: CSPs can use Wi-Fi offload to unburden data traffic from the macro network and securely move it to the internet
  • Improve coverage and capacity in difficult to reach and high density areas: Small, strategically placed base stations, called small cells, enable CSPs to expand coverage and increase capacity of the mobile network

“The reality is that the macro networks alone cannot solve the seemingly neverending growth in network demand, and it is critical that CSPs find a solution. Increases in customer churn are directly correlated with poor service quality, and unfortunately for the CSPs, customers have other options from over-the-top and competitive service providers,” said Stéphane Téral, Senior Research Director, IHS Inc. “With its Mobile Security Gateway, Oracle Communications addresses CSPs’ thorny issue of providing a cost-effective way to use ubiquitous Wi-Fi and internet to create a more scalable network to better serve their customers with Wi-Fi calling, Wi-Fi offload and small cells capabilities.”

Oracle Communications Mobile Security Gateway provides the high-performance and secure gateway that interconnects the untrusted Wi-Fi and internet with the mobile core. The resulting new heterogeneous networks enable CSPs to increase capacity, expand coverage, and ultimately deliver voice and data services to consumers with higher quality and with no other apparent change to the consumer. The product is built using the same proven security and scalability that is offered by Oracle Communications Session Border Controller.

“Wi-Fi is a standard capability in mobile operating systems. And so the opportunity for CSPs to use it in their mobile networks is clear—both to make the network more reliable and to deliver the kinds of Wi-Fi-enabled services customers are asking for,” said Doug Suriano, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Communications. “The Oracle Communications Mobile Security Gateway makes sure they can leverage this opportunity, and do so securely.”

To learn more about this solution, visit Oracle in Hall 3, Stand 3B20 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, February 22 – 25, 2016.
