The IMS Border Gateway Test Suite interacts with the SIP subscribers via the media plane and with the controller (SPDF/P-CSCF) with H.248/Megaco protocol based on the TISPAN extensions. In a deployed network, the media, SIP and Megaco signaling are synchronized.

Simulating and troubleshooting this environment in a lab to test the IMS border gateway before deployment can be a daunting task if multiple independent test boxes/applications are used to emulate the subscribers and the controller.
