What should you look for when testing broadband CPE or Wifi performance?

If you are developing or deploying broadband CPE, routers, or Wifi devices, what are the things you should look for when testing performance? Hint - it's more than just throughput, and having a fully automated system to exercise the entire system is key to ensuring true performance. What is performance testing? What do we mean when we talk about performance testing on a broadband gateway or access point? Read more...

How do you test TR-069 enabled devices?

Are you developing a device or deployment that uses the CPE WAN Management Protocol (TR-069), like managed Wifi or other services? When testing TR-069, what should you test for? What are the benefits of automating it with a dedicated test platform? What are the benefits of getting certified or asking your vendors to certify? Join the QA Cafe team as we show you: The different parts of TR-069 and what can and should be tested. Read more...

Automated home gateway security testing

Test your devices before attackers do. It’s no question now - malicious attackers are targeting the home network, and the gateway in particular. Testing for security vulnerabilities can be tedious and ineffective if you don’t have a controlled, repeatable, and fully automated test environment. Join the CDRouter team as we show you: How to test the functional performance of your security tools like parental controls, firewalls, and the security of your user interfaces. Read more...

CDRouter can automate an entire DOCSIS provisioning system. Focus on testing your cable modem and eRouter in a single test environment that can test every aspect of your devices from management to routing to performance. Learn more…

Testing TR-069 Devices in CDRouter 10

As the official test platform for TR-069 certification, CDRouter’s TR-069 add-on turns CDRouter into a scriptable ACS simulator with test cases for protocol functionality, data model validation, and security. Join the QA Cafe team as we show you: Building a configuration to run TR-069 testing The different TR-069 test cases CDRouter TR-069 vs. BBF.069 tests Testing the different TR-069 data models Setting up SSL certificates for testing

Testing Residential IPv6 with CDRouter

While IPv6 has been in development for more than a decade, the availability of residential IPv6 is still in its infancy. Traditional CPE devices running IPv4 with NAT are now adding IPv6 capabilities and 6to4 transition techniques even before native IPv6 connections are commonly available. CDRouter is IPv6 capable and provides vendors, ISPs, and test labs with a set of functional test cases to verify the IPv6 readiness of CPE devices. Read more...

How do I get a device TR-069 Certified?

Is your device TR-069 certified? CDRouter is the official test platform of the certification program for TR-069, called BBF.069. You can perform this testing using CDRouter before seeking certification at an approved test laboratory. What does certification mean? TR-069 certified devices can claim complete conformance to the TR-069 protocol. If the device supports one or more optional features, those tests are performed and included when the device is listed on the Broadband Forum certified device list. Read more...

Testing a Wifi Range Extender or Wifi Mesh System

Devices that enhance consumer Wifi are becoming more and more prevalent, both off the shelf and deployed by service providers. A Wifi booster or Wifi range extender is sometimes a simple repeater, but more often they act as layer 2 bridges, and can still be tested for performance and management via TR-069 or SNMP. Isolating a node in a Wifi mesh When there are multiple repeaters forming a mesh, as is the case with a lot of consumer Wifi systems , it’s best to isolate the DUT that you want by telling CDRouter which BSSID in the mesh to connect to. Read more...

Webinar - SNMP Scenario Testing

CDRouter 10.1 adds the ability to build custom “scenario” tests to exercise the behavior of a DUT’s SNMP stack and MIB. Similar to our TR-069 scenarios test cases, this allows you to set up tests that perform SNMP get requests, set requests, etc. on MIB objects specific to your DUT to see if the correct information can be set and retrieved and that your DUT behaves as expected after configuration. Read more...

Smallnetbuilder uses CDRouter for tests and ranking

The popular review and ranking website for home networking, Wifi, NAS, and other connected consumer devices, smallnetbuilder.com, has revamped its test procedures and will be adding a host of functional, scaling, and performance test cases exclusive to CDRouter to measure and rank the quality of small network equipment: “We’ll be checking DNS, DHCP, UPnP, NAT, firewall and many other routing functions on every router we review. As far as I know, this will make SmallNetBuilder the first publication to perform exhaustive and consistent functional router testing. Read more...

Webinar - Using the CDRouter Web Services API

CDRouter includes an advanced web services API to interact with your tests, packages, and more. With a few simple calls, you can fully integrate CDRouter with your test environment, continuous integration tools like Jenkins, or even build new alert and monitoring systems.

Webinar - Testing Wifi Guest Mode

One of the most common use cases for Wifi is the ability to set up a guest network alongside another network that is used by the home user, business, or other organization. It’s also a source of a lot of problems: guaranteeing that the Wifi router or AP can handle the number of clients connecting; making sure that the security in place for the guest network and other networks works correctly; and ensuring the policies you’ve put in place for guest access vs. Read more...
