As service providers and enterprise organizations utilize multi-vendor environments, equipment interoperability needs to be ensured through standards-based implementations. When equipment manufacturers develop new networking devices and software, compliance with networking protocol specifications, as well as compatibility and interoperability with existing products, have to be maintained. This makes conformance and regression testing crucial to ensure that new software releases do not result in failures in existing features.
Veryx ATTEST-CTS protocol conformance test suites verify compliance to IP and Ethernet-based protocols defined by standards-bodies such as IETF, IEEE, IEC, ITU-T, and MEF.
NEMs typically perform conformance testing during the protocol module development phase and at the final QA testing phase. NSPs need to perform conformance testing on equipment before network deployment to ensure better interoperability between vendors’ equipment. ATTEST-CTS test suites support 1 to 4 Ethernet test interfaces.
Veryx ATTEST-XP test suites provide functional verification using pre-defined topologies of typical deployment scenarios. The ready-to-run Veryx ATTEST-XP test suites provide Ethernet-based device manufacturers and service providers with significant cost savings in their test development and automation efforts.

ATTEST-XP test cases verify device functionalities for:
With the support of configuration controls, these tests provide verification for protocol performance and boundary conditions.
Allows verification of data forwarding and behavior of the switch for data flows with both valid and malformed data packets.
Enables verification of device behavior in handling valid as well as invalid protocol messages.
Assures verification of device capability in handling data on selected interfaces at wire-speed when using special hardware platforms.
