Announcing Spirent Velocity 8.7 Release
The demand for test and test environment automation has never been higher. Fueling this drive is new cloud-native technologies like 5G, whose components are highly disaggregated with independent release schedules and contents. Also driving the demand for test environment automation is the ongoing movement to remote working, consolidation, and the demands of being more efficient across geo-diverse engineering teams. The Velocity 8.7 release feeds this demand through major improvements usability, productivity, and new functionality in several key areas.
Velocity New Features
Optimize capital investments in test environment resources by configuring Velocity to choose the lowest cost resources, ports, and routes for each test bed.
First, ‘topology sharing’ allows users to collaborate their teams by granting edit permissions to their topologies. Second, ‘topology quick edit and reserve’ allows users to edit and reserve others’ topologies without having to clone and manage them as separate topology files.
Leverage new visualizations and plugins to dashboard test and resource data with the introduction of OpenSearch.
Associate resources to external systems such as asset management, support, and management systems to improve the user experience and better manage test resources.
Velocity iTest New Features
Appium Session Enhancements:
Validate functionality and performance of real applications on mobile handsets on mobile networks. Remotely control, verify, and view a real handset with the new ‘iTest Appium Inspector’.
Rapidly create and modify YAML files using iTest’s GUI and convert those actions into automation using iTest capture/replay.
Public Key Management API:
Quickly and accurately manage public keys on NDO agents deployed in production networks making ‘signed automation content’ easier to maintain.
