ATTEST Test Set-up
ATTEST significantly speeds-up the testing cycles and accelerates product development. Its unique design results in minimal time for set-up and enables efficient use of time and resources.
ATTEST runs in any of the following servers supporting the required number of Ethernet test interfaces (upto 4 interfaces based on test suite).
LINUX based COTS server
Veryx VT-400 appliance
Traffic generator platform
ATTEST Test Framework
Detailed Use Cases
Time Synchronization Testing
In today’s network-connected world, precise clock synchronization has become essential for many applications and services such as mobile, transportation and industrial networks.
Network switches and other devices that include IEEE 1588v2 precise time protocol (PTP) support, have the ability to timestamp packets at the hardware level as they ingress and egress network ports. Further, using the clock type hierarchy in a PTP network essentially removes or compensates for jitter effects and internal delays created in Ethernet switches and maintains time synchronization precision to at least the sub-microsecond level.
Veryx ATTEST PTP Conformance Test Suite deliver equipment manufacturers a ready-made and automated solution for verification of PTP implementation in their Ethernet devices, deployable in automation and control systems, measurement systems and power distribution systems.
ATTEST PTP performs automated conformance testing of network devices for Ordinary Clock, Boundary Clock and Transparent Clock functionality.
CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world’s largest and most respected centres for scientific research, and is making major contributions in timing and synchronization area. CERN’s White Rabbit Compliance Tests are based on Veryx ATTEST test suites. For more information visit CERN’s Open Hardware Repository (OHR) project for White Rabbit Compliance Tests.
Switch and Router Testing
Network switches and routers are present practically in any LAN or WAN network today and are being widely deployed in all forms of connectivity, whether wired or wire-less:
- Telcos and ISPs deploy core, edge and access switches using IP, MPLS and Carrier Ethernet technologies across the WAN
- Enterprises use Ethernet switches for LAN connectivity within the facility or campus and routers for connecting to external networks.
Veryx ATTEST is the most comprehensive and affordable solution available in the market for automated verification of layer-2 and layer 3 protocols, with support for
- Carrier-Ethernet (OAM, MEF, MPLS-TP etc.)
- Layer 2 (xSTP, VLAN, LACP, LLDP, 802.1X, etc.
- IPv4 Unicast (IPv4, RIP, OSPF, BGP, EIGRP etc.) and Multicast (IGMP, PIM-SM, PIM-DM)
- IPv6 Unicast (IPv6, RIPng, OSPFv3, BGP+ etc.) and Multicast (MLD, PIM-Sv6M, PIM-DMv6)
- IP Security (NAT, IPSEC)
Industrial Ethernet Testing
The introduction of Industry 4.0 and increased adoption of Ethernet based technologies across industrial and IoT applications. In addition to switch and router protocols, industrial equipment vendors are implementing specific protocols such as MRP and PRP to ensure higher reliability and availability.
Veryx ATTEST provides a comprehensive solution for automated verification of layer-2 and layer 3 protocols used in industrial Ethernet networks.
