Abstract

To make networks more reliable, enormous resources are poured into all phases of the network-equipment lifecycle. The process starts early in the design phase when simulation is used to verify the correctness of a design, and continues through manufacturing and perhaps months of rigorously trials. With over 7,000 Internet RFCs and hundreds of IEEE standards, a typical piece of networking equipment undergoes hundreds of conformance tests before being deployed. Finally, when deployed in a production network, the equipment is tested regularly. Throughout the process, a relentless battery of tests and measurement help ensure the correct operation of the equipment.
