Internet access for enterprises and home subscribers has been revolutionized by cable provider networks. As DOCSIS 3.1 continues to push the barriers of bandwidth, the customer edge remains key towards providing the quality, speed, and security that users and regulators demand.
Cable providers, device manufacturers, and ODMs of cable modems, Wi-Fi eRouters, and set-top-boxes know that testing at every stage - from development to deployment - is critical to a quality customer experience. But DOCSIS setups are complex and require many components and services to provision a usable test environment - without the right tools.
CDRouter is the industry-leading automated testing solution for testing the features, performance, and security of network devices. With an elegant web interface, robust API and thousands of test cases designed specifically for cable subscriber networks and the RDK-B reference implementation, CDRouter is an indispensable tool for design, deployment, and regression testing for both you and your vendors - and to give regulators the proof they need.
For RDK developers, it is the quickest, easiest way to fully test your implementations at every stage of your product lifecycle and go to market with your RDK-B based solutions faster than ever before.
The QA Cafe team works closely with the RDK community to validate the open-source RDK-B solution. Our CTO Tim Winters got a chance to sit down with Jamie Walker from the RDK Podcast to talk about testing, automation, standards, and how CDRouter helps RDK-B implementations stay robust and interoperable!
