Accelerate your development with time-saving automation, comprehensive test coverage, and world-class support.

CDRouter is the industry standard in feature, security, and performance testing for broadband and enterprise edge gateways, Wi-Fi APs and mesh systems, VoIP gateways, set-top-boxes, and smart hubs enabling the Internet of Things.

A high-performance, modern test appliance

CDRouter is a a complete software solution for automated testing, built on high-end hardware dedicated to testing features, performance, and security of connected devices.

Our NTA1000 platform easily fits into your existing test bed and development process. Get set up and testing thousands of features in just minutes — with a support team committed to helping you succeed.

  • Simulate WAN connections including PPPoE, DHCPv4/v6, PPTP, L2TP, Static IPv4/v6, 6to4, 6rd, DS-Lite, MAP-T, MAP-E, 802.1x Access Controlled, and Wireless WAN
  • Run line-rate performance testing with full capture data
  • Simulate up to 128 802.11 a/b/g/n or ac wave 2 Wi-Fi clients, with IPv4 or IPv6 hosts

Comprehensive, standardized test coverage built by the experts, right out of the box.

WAN Connectivity

CDRouter contains standardized test cases exercising a DUT’s ability to connect to a variety of WAN terminations, including DHCPv4/v6, static IP, PPPoE, PPPoA, PPTP, L2TP, 802.1x, or even simulate a full DOCSIS provisioning system.

Performance and Scaling

Uncover performance problems before they're seen in the field by flexing your device’s ability to handle line-rate throughput, QoS settings, scaling Wi-Fi and LAN clients, and scaling of active connections.

Security

Connected Device security has never been more important than it is today, with attackers specifically targeting the home network. Verify firewall functions, perform full security probes with nmap, and test for known published security flaws. You can also test enterprise security features like VPN, IKE, access control, and DMZ configurations.

Routing and Forwarding

Home gateways, Wi-Fi Routers, and eRouters perform the heavy lifting for Internet Protocol operations. CDRouter can verify NAT and port mapping functions, RIP and other routing protocols, multicast, ICMP forwarding, etc., repeatedly and predictably.

IPv6 Migration

Are you or your customers looking to deploy IPv6 in the access or home network? All of CDRouter’s tests can support both IPv4 and IPv6, and contains a full set of IPv6 test cases. That includes IPv6 transition mechanisms for access like 6rd, dslite, MAP-T, and MAP-E.

TR-069 and USP

CDRouter is the official platform for TR-069, and contains thousands of test cases for repeatable, automated qualification and regression testing for any device that supports CWMP or the User Services Platform (USP). Our support team has decades of expertise and has been directly involved with the development of both TR-069 and USP.

Cloud Managed Devices

If your devices are cloud managed or require access to external resources, CDRouter lets you operate your device in a live network while isolating test traffic for repeatable, consistent test results, while monitoring device behavior for later troubleshooting.

Network Services and Applications

Prove your device can handle the processing and implementation of key network applications such as DNS, NTP, HTTP, proxy, etc., and real-world applications like UPnP, IGMP, HTTP, SIP ALG, gaming, mDNS, and other protocols on both the WAN and the LAN.

DOCSIS

CDRouter simulates the network services required for a fully featured DOCSIS network, letting you test cable modems and eRouters through any CMTS. Cable/MSO testing is easy with cases that exercise configuration, routing, application, and performance.

Honestly, we’d need a huge team of (expensive) experts to cover all the knowledge that is covered by all the test cases present in CDRouter.
