Comarch as a Member of UPnP Forum has been sharing its expert knowledge in the domain of advanced network protocols and certification tools for several years. Recently, Comarch successfully released the 2.0 version of UPnP Compliance Test Tool (UCTT2.0), that is considered a major step for UPnP ecosystem on the path to becoming fully interoperable and vendor agnostic.
"The build-from-scratch UCTT2.0 is considerably stricter in validating UPnP communication between devices under test, supporting deeper test penetration and leading to more credible results. Consequently, the compliancy assurance level is significantly higher and certification much tougher to achieve, but potential IOP issues are detected and addressed all the way faster. Together with greatly improved ergonomics of the tool, all these lead to a new definition of user experience and enriched suitability of the tool for the whole certification process". - said Grzegorz Kafel UPnP Specialist who was directly involved in the project as Project Manager.
The entirely refactored architecture of UCTT2.0 makes it possible to certificate both UPnP devices and control points within one tool. The active and run-time dynamic environment enables to simulate various UPnP network elements, and on-the-fly analysis of intercommunication of both class devices, rather than post-processed parsing used by the previous version of the tool.
UCTT2.0 is compatible with Comarch Remote Access Framework, that among others makes it eventually possible to perform precertification consultancy or actual certification remotely and securely over the cloud, with no need for network configuration or additional investments in infrastructure.
