Advanced Test Programs Policy

Spirent Communications contributes to the advancement of new technology and test methodologies by its participation in industry forums such as the IETF, and publicly and privately conducted tests. The following statement describes our approach to testing and our neutral but supportive role in both public and private tests.

State-of-the-Art Test Methodologies

Our policy is to foster and author unbiased, industry agreed-upon, test methodologies that meet the highest standards possible and then implement such methodologies within our products.

Non-endorsement Policy

Spirent Communications has a policy of non-endorsement or comment on, the merits or demerits of any specific vendor products that are tested using Spirent test solutions, nor any test results, achieved by any vendor.

From time to time, Spirent Communications generates press releases jointly with customers, that refer to the qualities of our test equipment, or note advances in the industry, etc.

Spirent Never Conducts Industry Tests

Tests supported by the Spirent Advanced Test Programs are always conducted by independent test labs, magazines, etc., or by our customers who commission other third parties. We frequently facilitate these tests to make sure that new test methodologies and test systems are operating properly, but running such public or sponsored tests of vendors equipment and interpretation of results are performed by vendors or third parties. Our involvement can extend to re-creating test environments on participants or vendor sites, before after or during public tests, so that vendors can best reflect the tested functions and performance of their systems. It typically involves careful scrutiny of all the test system, installing applications or scripts, and setting up the tests for valid operation. If problems are found, we try to identify the cause and if necessary fix them in real time or identify issues with the device under test to help vendors improve their products. NDA and/or other agreements of confidentiality are always respected.

Public Tests Advance the State-of-the-Art

We relish public tests involving our customers and ferociously guard our unique tradition of being entirely neutral. Public tests almost always involve cutting-edge technology and frequently involve specially written or ground-breaking test methodologies. This benefits everyone including potential users of devices, vendors who test well, vendors who subsequently work to improve their products and Spirent Communications as we are continually committed to improve our products. We believe this impartiality, and our passion for making the best test systems is why we continue to be the test platform of choice in such evaluations.
