Veryx ATTEST automated test suites support a wide range of Layer 2 and IPv6/IPv4 protocols

message

With wide availability of Ethernet and internet protocol (IP)-aware devices and applications, Ethernet and IP-based switching products are supported by practically all wire-line and wireless equipment manufacturers. These devices implement a large number of IEEE and IETF standards defined functionalities relating to forwarding, routing, quality of service, security, redundancy etc. This creates the need to:

  • Determine the level of compliance with the standards and specifications relating to a protocol or application.
  • Identify protocol failures earlier in the development and integration cycles to reduce project costs.

As equipment manufacturers of Layer 2 and Layer 3 Ethernet switches strive to enhance their products to support new platforms and applications, the availability of Veryx’s comprehensive automated test suites reduce testing time and shorter time to market with enhanced quality.
