About


The dynamic growth of Internet-based services affects everyone. On the one hand, providers want to be sure that users experience great service quality, on the other, consumers want to verify if SLA conditions are met. Test and monitoring tools should follow these changes in order to remain useful and meaningful. This is why Net Research offers the virtual Universal Testing Platform which is a web-based service designed to test and monitor various assets and services and remove all burdens related to configuration and management.

The Testing as a Service paradigm gives access to variety of tests, heterogenous test agents, time based test schedules, instant monitoring and a supported graphic-based results analysis. All of this is available from anywhere and with any device with a web browser installed. The user-friendly web-based interface provides easy access to a powerful tool able to satisfy a variety of needs in countless scenarios appearing in the world of Internet-based services. We can additionally fulfil any special demands due to the easily extensible modular architecture of the vUTP platform.

Features


With the vUTP cloud and on-premise test agents can be transparently used to perform either single on-demand or periodical tests scheduled with a user-defined timespan and intensity. You can easily manage not only numerous test agents but also plan hundreds of tests in a cost-effective manner and analyze results with the aid of suggestions provided by the system. The dashboard ensures an intuitive and extensible interface.

Test agents

The NetResearch vUTP Testing as A Service platform supports cloud-based software and on- premise test agents which can be transparently used to perform either single on-demand or periodical tests scheduled with user-defined timespans and intensities. You can easily manage not only numerous test agents but also plan hundreds of tests in a cost-efficient manner and analyze results supported by the system’s suggestions. The dashboard ensures an intuitive and extensible interface.

Instant test execution

The vUTP platform seamlessly provisions resources and assigns tasks to ensure on-click and cost-effective test execution in globally-scaled infrastructure. Tests can be also scheduled and executed via the API interface.

Continuous monitoring

The test-scheduling feature combined with public clouds provides a powerful, globally-scaled and easy to use tool for the continuous monitoring of service QoE. Notifications enable remaining aware of the current status of assets.

Versatile dashboard

All of the features are provided through the simple but highly informative graphic interface available anytime, anywhere, and from any device just using the web browser.

Result presentation

High-level analyses are enabled by informative diagrams summarizing recent and historical results. Any issue can be thoroughly investigated with a test-specific detailed view while vUTP supports the analysis with initial suggestions concerning alarming results and possible causes.

Simple management

he platform handles communication, resource management and billings in multi-cloud infrastructure providing a transparent unified interface to the Testing as A Service features. Simple fee plans help our customers to focus solely on planning tests that are important for their businesses.

Interface


The web-based dashboard is designed to provide the best experience when scheduling and running tests. Tests are intuitively categorized to ensure immediate access. Charts, diagrams and tables give a fast and clear insight into collected results without disruptive add-ons. The administration panel enables 24/7 account management; in this way, all the needs are met in an extremely simple manner and without any need for client-side installations.

Tests


A broad range of tests is provided to enable a plethora of cases in which the vUTP platform is applicable. It provides an opportunity to verify the performance of the machine hosting the vUTP test agent, the network connectivity between test agents and endpoints-under-tests, and the quality of services like OTT video, HTTP (including waterfall analysis) or traditional FTP. Modular architecture makes it easily possible to respond to our customer’s demands and extend the offer of tests. vUTP can work as a powerful yet simple orchestrator of multiple global-wide tests running at various network layers. Below, a more detailed list of tests is provided in distinct Node, Network and Service categories.

Node

Verify performance of machines hosting the vUTP test agent and make sure that expected and sufficient resources are available in terms of computing (AES Encryption, RSA Encryption, DEFLATE Compression, FFT Math, Hashing), memory (Latency, Read, Write), and storage (Latency, Read, Write Random Read, Re-Write).

Network

Verify network performance between VIJTP test agent and asset under test. Conduct tests for different network protocols starting from simple but meaningful health checks and ending with measurements of advanced quality indicators. Network tests include Ping, path-ping, Traceroute, UDP Scan, TCP Connectivity Scan, FTP, Download Rate, HITP/S Latency, HTTP/S Throughput, classical iperf Test and others.

Services

Verify the quality of high level services to be sure that SLA are met and clients are satisfied. Match the obtained results with expected quality of experience for applications like OTT Video and many others.
