QA Cafe ― Automate, validate, and deliver better broadband and connected devices


cdrouter performancePerformance

CDRouter Performance combines the powerful and standardized functionality testing of CDRouter with the ability to run stateful, line-rate traffic through your device under test. This lets you prove that device functions don’t impact network performance, that QoS policies set up on the device perform properly, and that a device’s performance does not degrade over time.

This is a brave new world for CPE testing. Is your device up to speed?

Key Features

  • Isolate the root cause of performance issues faster and more easily
  • Create pass/fail criteria based on benchmark or QoS goals
  • Test throughput and latency on hundreds of combinations
  • Supports TCP and UDP, IPv4 and IPv6, wired and wireless, and VLANs
  • Discover functionality impacts on performance, and visa versa
  • Automate your performance and functionality testing all in a single tool

Performance and Protocol Testing, Together

Measure Functional Effects on Performance

Traditional testing focuses on forwarding traffic while ignoring the real functions of the DUT. Major issues can appear even from normal user activity, creating memory fragmentation or leaks, excessive loss from an overworked CPU, software bugs, or configuration issues.

Measure the Effectiveness of Traffic Rules

If your device supports QoS tagging or other traffic shaping or priority rules, CDRouter can ensure that these features work when properly configured.

Test Performance and Functionality With One Tool

CDRouter Performance’s unique ability to combine real-world operations in conjunction with standard throughput, latency, and loss testing lets you see the impacts of these issues head on.

Example Test Exercises

  • Verify TR-069 does not impact performance over time
  • Compare IPv6 to IPv4 throughput and latency over time
  • Apply Provider Specific Benchmarks as Pass/Fail Criteria
  • Measure realistic 802.11 application throughput
  • Verify forwarding does not degrade when combined with functional test
  • Verify wireless stability under load
  • Verify wireless connections are not dropped under heavy load
