Why do I Need an Automated Network Protocol Test Suite?
- Manual testing consumes budget and resources to reveal only the obvious errors.
- Code reviews, due to the specialized nature of network protocols, do not easily reveal the mis-implementations.
- Diagnosing and mitigating these problems after deployment is costly.
- Post-deployment bugs reported by your customers and users are ten to 30 times the cost to repair compared to finding and fixing bugs prior to initial release. (Source: Capers Jones, NIST)
What are the consequences of NOT using the IWL Automated Network Protocol Test Suite?
- You ship a product with known security vulnerabilities damaging your clients’ businesses.
- Intermittent problems show up on your clients’ networks that go away when they remove your device, but no one can tell exactly what is causing the problem.
- You burn up valuable software development resources chasing down bugs at client’s sites.
What is the ultimate cost if your app or device fails?
Your reputation is damaged and your clients go elsewhere!
