Announcing Spirent Velocity 9.0 Release
Velocity Release: 9.0
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 9.0 release feeds this demand through major improvements usability, productivity, and new functionality in several key areas.
