CDRouter is the industry standard testing platform for consumer and business broadband CPE. Fully automated and customizable, CDRouter provides the confidence and clarity you need with today’s advanced devices.
CDRouter contains thousands of test cases that perform rigorous, comprehensive protocol and functional testing of your consumer and business routers, gateways, and other CPE products.
CDRouter Live uses CDRouter’s powerful tools to drive tests in a live network, letting you test in your existing infrastructure and get real-world, end-to-end validation of your devices and network services working together. Test against your own or your customers’ DNS, NTP, or WAN connections, test devices with unique infrastructure requirements like LTE, and fully test the functionality of networks moving increasingly toward NFV and virtual CPE.
The CDRouter Multiport module lets you test devices with complex network setups or applications that require multiple WAN or LAN ports to be active during testing. Multiport allows CDRouter test setups for devices with more than one physical or logical WAN port, such as those requiring separate management and data connections, or those supporting multi-service connections requiring QoS.
CDRouter is the official test platform for the Broadband Forum BBF.069 Certification program. The CDRouter TR-069 module transforms your CDRouter platform into a fully scriptable ACS emulator to test device implementations of the Broadband Forum popular TR-069 CPE WAN Management Protocol (CWMP). Whether you are an ISP, OEM, chipset, or TR-069 stack vendor, CDRouter TR-069 can ensure that your devices communicate and correctly manage data models, whether they are gateways, routers, or end devices such as STBs, VoIP endpoints, or NAS.
Are you making the transition to IPv6? Are your customers demanding dual-stack functionality in your CPE products? CDRouter is IPv6 capable with the CDRouter IPv6 test module, letting you gain access to all of the WAN-side and LAN-side network elements necessary to simulate a complete IPv6 test environment within a single test platform.
For security gateways that support VPN and IPSEC tunnelling, the CDRouter IKE module allows CDRouter to simulate hosts connecting through these IKE based features to ensure that your device’s VPN connections are secure and robust. CDRouter IKE can also be combined with CDRouter’s application tests from other modules to allow application traffic to run over VPN connections.
The CDRouter Storage module provides test coverage for both stand-alone NAS (network attached storage) devices and NAS functionality that is built into your home gateway or other CPE. With support for file system and transfer protocols such as SMB/CIFS, FTP, and FTPS, CDRouter Storage can quickly verify the functionality and behavior of your device’s storage capabilities, whether internally or externally.
Included in CDRouter Core is the CDRouter Nmap module, which combines CDRouter’s expansive test and automation functionality with Nmap, the industry’s leading network exploration and security auditing tool. With automatic scanning across all WAN and LAN configurations, you can find out how your CPE device will appear on live networks scanned with Nmap. CDRouter Nmap is critical for ensuring the security of home and business gateways, routers, and other CPE.
For business class CPE that contain SNMP agents, CDRouter SNMP gives you a fully automated and scriptable SNMP NMS simulator to test the conformance and functionality of SNMP on your device. You can import your own MIBs or test to the industry standard MIBs, and test on both the WAN and the LAN. In addition, CDRouter SNMP includes a complete set of test cases that exercise all SNMP PDUs and some of the most common statistics parameters found in broadband CPE.
CloudShark is a capture management system designed to work with CDRouter, letting you view and analyze captures anywhere, on any device. In addition, CloudShark adds advanced annotation and collaboration tools, lets you decrypt SSL data without giving out private keys, and acts as a central, searchable repository for all of your CDRouter capture files.
