SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Mu Dynamics, Inc. (, the leader in testing next-generation network services, today announced that Thomas Maufer, director of technical marketing at Mu Dynamics will present at the VoIP Conference and Expo on October 14, 2010 at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT).

His first presentation, "Scale Testing of SIP Proxies: Finding the Performance Ceiling", will be held on Thursday, October 14 from 3:00 – 3:30 p.m. Mu Dynamics and IIT collaborated with the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Benchmarking Methodology Working Group (BMWG) to define benchmarks for SIP-based VoIP services. These benchmarks were executed using Mu's Studio Scale solution, which identified the performance ceiling of certain proxy implementations. This session will cover test methodology and test results in addition to providing strategies for how companies can avoid these failures in the future.

The second presentation, "Automation of IMS Forum's Diameter BaseTest Plan" will be held on Thursday, October 14 from 4:30 – 5:00 p.m. Mu Dynamics worked with IIT students to create automated versions of 46 test cases from the Diameter Base protocol test plan. These conformance tests cover the requirements that any Diameter implementation should support within modern VoIP and VoLTE network deployments. This session will review the findings and demonstrate the process of running a test against a live Diameter implementation in IIT's VoIP lab.

The 6th Annual VoIP Conference and Expo will bring together technical professionals and executives from the data and telecommunications industry, standards bodies, government agencies and the business community. The presentations, exhibits, social events, and session breaks provide opportunities to discover different aspects of this rapidly evolving field and to meet new contacts and partners. The major themes at the conference this year include VoIP, Voice over Web and Voices from Beyond the Internet.

"It is a privilege to be selected to speak at the VoIP Conference this year," Maufer said. "The Mu Test Suite was able to nail down performance metrics, especially overload conditions that homegrown tools simply could not achieve against the higher-capacity SIP proxies. I look forward to demonstrating the methodology involved in this testing, and previewing some of the results during my presentation."
