Conformance Testing

New networking protocols are continuously developed to support the latest industry innovations. Ensuring compliance with the standards and specifications for a protocol is critical for getting new technologies to the market faster.

Through conformance testing, NEMs, Service Providers and Data Center Operators verify the interoperability and reliability of their new products or services in a multi-vendor environment. Spirent Conformance Test Solution is uniquely suited to help improve this testing process.


Spirent Conformance Test Solution dramatically decreases the time required to test compliance and interoperability of network devices for network protocols. Benefits include:

  • Reduce project costs by identifying protocol compliance failures earlier in the development and integration cycles
  • Isolate interoperability issues between different vendor implementations
  • Most comprehensive test coverage in the industry
  • Improved result analysis for faster root cause analysis
  • One touch automation with DUT Automation Editor and Scenario Generator
