      New Edition Enables Sophisticated System Testing While Improving

                          Productivity and Quality

    MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 19 /EMWNews/ -- Fanfare, delivering

innovative testing solutions to network equipment manufacturers (NEMs),

service providers (SPs), and enterprises today announced the latest release

of iTest(TM),the company's flagship test automation product.

    iTest 3.2 is a comprehensive testing solution for device and

heterogeneous system testing. As the complexity of devices has increased,

so has the market demand for vendor-agnostic integration between test

equipment and test automation software. With iTest 3.2, customers can

seamlessly integrate test assets and automate complex system testing using

hardware and software from a variety of different vendors.

    "iTest provides an agnostic testing solution that unifies all of the

different pieces of the increasingly complex testing puzzle," said Theresa

Lanowitz, founder of voke, a leading market and industry research firm. "By

providing a common foundation for conducting complex system testing, iTest

is a valuable tool for both network equipment manufacturers and service

providers that must communicate test assets to one another on a regular

basis. This inevitably reduces product release cycles while enhancing the

overall quality of product being released to the marketplace."

    Early beta versions of 3.2 have demonstrated that testers employing

scripting methods, as well as those who are using a manual approach, both

cited gains in productivity up to eight times their previous levels. As a

result, customers at various levels of automation can accelerate their

testing process, improving productivity and the overall quality of products

and services being released to market.

    "We have seen a real expansion in the market, where service providers

now account for nearly half of our customer base and enterprises are

showing an increased interest in our products," said Tom Ryan, president

and CEO of Fanfare. "This demonstrates the growing importance of quality

and testing across all segments of the industry. With this new release of

iTest, customers will experience significant gains in productivity and

quality improvements, whether they are just starting on the path to

automation, or they are evolving to the next level of automated testing."

    In order to support more complex and demanding testing environments,

the following new features have been incorporated into release 3.2:

-- In-Grid Analysis providing intuitive pass / fail capabilities -- Testbed Revolver for improved transferability -- Support of Java Swing, Syslog, and Wireshark applications -- Enhancements to Agilent's N2X and Spirent's SmartBits and TestCenter integrations -- Support of Ixia's IxNetwork and IxLoad test equipment software Existing Fanfare customers with current maintenance or subscription licenses are able to upgrade to iTest 3.2 as part of their maintenance contract or subscription license. iTest Team, the most popular iTest edition, is available at an annual subscription rate of $6500 per user. Support for IxNetwork and IxLoad is available as additional options for $1000 each per year. iTest3.2 is now generally available.
