Empirix to Release Gen 6 Hammer Voice Test System

Empirix, a provider of end-to-end network performance testing, today launched the Gen 6 Hammer Test System, a test automation platform comprised of the Hammer IP 6.0 and CallMaster 6.0.

The Gen 6 platform will enable the development and reuse of flexible, comprehensive testing scripts while providing additional insights into the end-to-end customer experience in secure environments.

Empirix's Hammer Test System reduces the time required to comprehensively test end-to-end customer experience from weeks to hours. Existing and potential problems or defects are identified before they can impact a production network, and scalability issues are identified in minutes.

With the introduction of Gen 6, Empirix continues to deliver new functionality. These new features include the following:

  • Encrypted communication support for Avaya H.323 using SRTP, augmenting existing support for SIP SRTP and generic H.323.
  • Access to secure devices through secure shell to obtain critical information at run time.
  • Ability to integrate with third-party tools, such as HP-ALM, for test case management and execution.
  • Enhanced testing of dynamic runtime behavior, leveraging iNuance Communicatiomns' just-in-time grammars.

"Security is a top priority for our clients, and, as a result, most are deploying a robust, in-depth defense strategy. Empirix recognized our clients' need to balance secure voice transactions with strong performance to ensure a safe and positive customer experience," stated John D'Anna, CEO of Empirix, in a statement. "With the launch of the Gen 6 Hammer Test System, Empirix clients can now quickly and efficiently validate the performance of call centers, IMS, or IP telephony in secure environments."
