Test Lab Switches
Physical Layer switches are "wire-once" switching solutions ideal for test labs, where connections are set once and then reconfigured via software.

Application Graphic User Interface (GUI) Testing

Get more information on GUI test automation products

Testing an applications GUI to ensure it meets its written specifications, can be challenging as graphical objects vary in appearance and placement on the screen. Another problem, is the sequencing problem such as executing mouse clicks, list boxes and menus. These issues complicate manual testing and have driven GUI testing to automation.

To resolve this issue Test Automation Software collects GUI object information from the underlying windowing system. It is also instructed or taught the sending of events to and receiving events from the GUI  to build a driver. This allows for the input and output necessary for GUI testing to be fully automated. Test Automation Software eliminates user error and provides for greater test coverage and better software quality.

To ensure the software meets its written specifications, test cases can be developed with Test Planning tools that assist in generating, managing and tracking execution of test cases.

Application Load and Stress Test - System and Server Testing

Get more information on our Load and Stress testing products

Load testing models the expected usage of the system under test. Stress testing involves testing beyond normal operational capacity. Also, performance testing is used to determine how fast some aspect of a system performs under a particular workload.

Multi-user systems, built using a client/server model, require Load, Stress and Performance Testing. This is achieved by automation tools that simulate many users and the underlying transactions on a system. The purpose is to test scalability, application performance, server hardware performance and other system behaviors, including failure and security aspects when a system is scaled up.

Automation Tools for Application Server Load and Stress testing provide tools to capture transactions and play a model of those transactions back simulating many users. They provide metrics, on transaction time and server hardware utilization.

For network devices, network simulators and stateful packet generators are used for testing. Get more information.

Application Analysis

Application performance of networked applications can only be evaluated by the interplay of packets between clients and servers.

Advanced protocol analyzers can help break out the cause to network, client or server. More specialized products can deliver code thread analysis and predictive analysis required by quality assurance and development teams.

WAN Emulation - Simulate Impairments

Packets are impaired to simulate Wide Area connections.

When packets move across long line connections such as WAN or Internet. Theses long lines add latency, dropped packets, jitter and  other impairments that affect applications. Tools that simulate these impaiments are used to understand application performance and to test device configurations.

We offer two solutions and the one of interest will depend on the network connection preferred. Most customers emulating latency, packet loss and other network impairments want to test using Ethernet connections, if so review LANforge Ice.. Other customers must create impairments between test routers, then the product of interest is the Router Delay Simulator.

Software and Script configurable Test Lab Switches

Get general information on TAP's and Physical Layer Switches

Centralized sharing of equipment is made simple and easy to configure by incorporating a physical layer switch into test labs. Pooling equipment provides substantial savings by reducing capital equipment, decrease the configuration time, improve test repeatability, and increase test efficiency.

"Wire-once" switching solutions are ideal for test labs, where connections are set once and then reconfigured via software. The manual re-wiring of complicated configurations, and the errors associated with it, become a thing of the past. With just two clicks in the embedded web GUI, users can instantaneously configure connections between devices without touching a cable. Also, supports automation via scripting.
