Features & Benefits

iTest Sessions provide a simple way to interact with almost any device, software API, physical or virtual environment. From command line, to Web interfaces, creating a sophisticated test script can be as simple as opening the session and interacting with the XuT just like during manual testing.
Topology Management
iTest’s graphical topology designer allows the user to draw the test bed in a Visio®-like diagram, then reference the devices in the topology when writing the test. The diagram represents the reference topology that the test uses, and the actual devices are assigned at the time of execution to create a totally portable test.
iTest integrates with almost any system including most continuous integration solutions and agile development processes. iTest has proven integration with a variety of application lifecycle management systems.
iTest creates simple tests quickly and sophisticated tests easily. Each test includes pass/fail criteria so that determining if the test succeeded is as simple as checking the results status. iTest even notifies the tester once the script is done.
Tool Support
iTest integrates with almost any test tool. iTest has a wide range of integrated test tools from Spirent and third-party vendors. iTest is the only test automation solution that supports the network test industry’s most prolific standards body, NTAF.

Quality and Automation

Man thinking with his chin in his hand

The only way to minimize the impact of poor quality on the bottom line is to be proactive and prevent it in the first place. To do so, executives must change their mindset. Learn about quality issues, how they are solved and results achieved from an executive-level.

Implement Test Automation

Two men and a woman looking at a white board

There are several misconceptions related to the prospect of integrating a test automation solution within an organization. For example, barriers to implementation include theories that test automation is hard, expensive and will eliminate testing jobs. This could not be farther from the truth. Evaluate your test automation strategy from an up-to-date and informed perspective.
