Test Suite Stuff

Hotel suites can be sexy. Test suites seldom are.For me, theyflash my mind on oscilloscopes.

Hotel suites can be sexy. Test suites seldom are.For me, theyflash my mind on oscilloscopes. Hey, don't look at me. I barely passed high school algebra.

Still, I have to recognize the importance of test suites that measure the performance of what happens when two taking-the-world-by-storm technologies are combined.

Azimuth Systems has a new benchmark test suite for testing VoIP in the Wi-Fi environment. The company claims this is the first such test suite for these joint technologies.

One component, the Vo-Wi-Fi Benchmark Test for Wireless VoIP Handset, checks thevoice qualityof the handset while the user is moving.Sounds to me like Azimuth's version of those popular Verizon Test Man commercials.

The other component is called VoWLAN Benchmark Test for Wi-Fi Infrastructure. This capability tests wireless access points as well as the ability of the wireless LAN backbone to deliver quality of servicewhile keeping voicefidelity intact.
