Conformance Testing


Conformance Testing

Conformance testing with Spirent TestCenter. Convergence is driving the development of new protocols to support new services, from multiplay to virtualization. One result is increased complexity in development, implementation and deployment of devices and networks, coinciding with the opposing trend to streamline development efforts to lower costs.

The Spirent TestCenter conformance testing application resolves the conflict between complexity and efficiency, providing a strategic tool for increased test efficiency and reduced support costs by validating protocol implementations.
  • Conformance testing during the initial stages of development reduces time-consuming troubleshooting in later stages of development
  • Conformance testing during regression testing increases the reliability of a release, reducing support calls
  • Conformance testing is also an essential first step in interoperability trials, quickly identifying issues that would otherwise result in hours of troubleshooting.
Spirent is the recognized leader in conformance testing with a legacy reaching back to the drafters of early telecommunications standards. The case for using Spirent TestCenter Conformance Application and Test Suites is clear:
  • Automated conformance testing dramatically decrease the time required to test and validate new protocols
  • Multiple test suites can be run simultaneously from a single Spirent TestCenter Conformance Application instance to reduce test execution time
  • Highly detailed test case documentation within the application reduces the time to understand test case behavior
  • Running conformance, performance and functional testing from a single Spirent TestCenter platform saves money and multi-platform administration headaches
Key Benefits
  • Reduced time to test: Automation and simultaneous execution of multiple test suites
  • Increased product reliability: Industry-leading experience in conformance testing
  • Improved TCO and ROI: Suitable for conformance, performance, functional and scalability testing
  • Reduce Capex with one system for the test lifecycle
  • Reduce Opex for large tests by driving 4.8 Terabits of traffic per rack while using 25% less power
Key Features
  • Run multiple test suites sequentially without user intervention
  • Automate interaction with the DUT, eliminating the need to actively monitor the test
  • Quickly find issues in hundreds or thousands of results with a hierarchical view of results
  • Multiple results views (pass/fail, packet decodes, ladder diagrams, raw hex) facilitate rapid identification and analysis of failure or inconclusive conditions
  • Facilitate bug-tracking metrics in regression cycles by easily comparing results from multiple test runs
  • Rerun tests based on the conclusion in a previous test (pass, fail, or inconclusive)
