Test Optimization

Improve network and application test lab efficiency, speed, and performance.

Validating that devices and applications perform as expected is critical to customer satisfaction. This validation begins in a lab environment during development and quickly migrates to production when new features are deployed or upgraded. Whether you are responsible for verification in test labs, monitoring in production, or both, we have the solutions you need.

What's New
NETSCOUT has introduced the industry’s first 1, 10, and 40G Layer 1 switching solution with integrated intelligence. Our nGenius® 3900 Series Packet Flow Switch (PFS), with new integrated S-Blade Pro, delivers a unique combination of Layer 1 switching combined with higher level intelligence in a single platform that helps to optimize overall test lab performance.

Test Lab Automation Infrastructure
An efficient test lab uses layer-1 switching, or physical layer switching, at its core to enable rapid and automated topology changes without ever touching a cable. Using NETSCOUT’s solutions, it is possible to not only create an efficient test lab, but to truly optimize your test lab by using features that build upon layer 1 connectivity in order to provide higher level layer 2-4 features, all in a single platform. Features such as rate conversion, aggregation, replication, filtering, impairment, and packet generation are readily available in NETSCOUT’s Test Lab Automation Infrastructure solutions, and complement baseline layer 1 switching.

Test Tools for Labs
Technology in telecommunications networks continues to evolve at a rapid pace. VoIP and IMS are now ubiquitous and VoLTE rollouts are accelerating around the globe. In parallel with the evolution of cable, fixed, and wireless networks, the emergence of WebRTC could enable a new class of browser-based communication options for service providers and enterprises. Keeping up with all of this requires a core network test tool that supports the latest in communication technology and can also verify interoperability with legacy SS7 and ISDNdeployments. NETSCOUT’s Spectra2 solutions provide just that.
