Fanfare Enhances its Flagship Test Automation

Fanfare rolled out a series of enhancements for its flagship test automation product, which is used by service providers (SPs), network equipment manufacturers (NEMs), and enterprises to accelerate the testing of new systems and services. Fanfare's iTest provides a unified approach for rapidly developing, automating, and maintaining test cases.

Among the new features in iTest 4.0 is an Activity-Based User Interface (UI), which streamlines controls around a set of common activities, allowing users to focus on common tasks for rapid testing and automation.

Fanfare has added a Centralized Reporting Database, which tracks key testing data, and a Graphical Topology component which provides testers with a visual testbed. This drag and drop-enabled graphical representation, combined with the ability to connect instantly to any device, provides a simple way to run the same test case by a different team or against different equipment. In addition, iTest 4.adds support for Adobe Flash technology.

Existing Fanfare customers with current maintenance or subscription licenses are able to upgrade to iTest 4.0.
