This topic summarizes the results of Cisco Unified Communications Release 6.1(1) system testing for IP telephony environments. This topic contains the following sections:
•Tested Deployment and Site Models
Cisco Systems validates Cisco Unified Communications systems by designing, installing, configuring, and testing hardware and software to achieve a predictable, effective, and reliable system. The intent of system testing is to validate the seamless interoperability and stability of the components that make up a complete and optimized Cisco Unified Communications system.
Testing performed for Cisco Unified Communications includes (but is not limited to) the following:
•Installation, Upgrade, and Usability Testing—To verify software installation and upgrades at the system level and usability for system components
•End-to-End Functionality Testing—To verify the end-to-end functionality of system components
•Basic Functionality and Feature Testing—To verify basic call flows and component features
•Customer Assurance Program (CAP) Scenario Testing—To re-create and test CAP scenarios based on TAC input
•Interoperability Testing—To verify the interoperability among system components
•Scalability Testing—To verify system functionality during scalability tests
•Performance, Load, and Stress Testing—To verify system functionality during performance, load, and stress tests
•Failover, Recovery, and Redundancy Testing—To verify system behavior during failover and recovery, and behavior in redundant configurations
Tested Deployment and Site Models
Cisco Unified Communications Release 6.1(1) testing for IP telephony was designed to test the hardware and software components that work together in a multi-site distributed IP telephony deployment. For this testing, several site models were created. Each site model was designed to test a specific set of features and interactions. For information about the components, configurations, and environment tested in this system release, see Enterprise Tested Deployments and Site Models and Small and Medium Business Tested Deployments and Site Models .
The results of the system tests performed for IP telephony during Cisco Unified Communications Release 6.1(1) are shown in the System Test Results .
The test results contain the following information:
•Title—Title of the test.
•ID—Identifier for the test.
•Description—Description of the purpose of the test.
•Features Tested—Component feature tested.
•Status—Result of the test and any defects related to the test case. Possible values are:
–Passed—Test case passed as described in the table.
–Failed—Test case failed and the reason is described in the listed defect.
–Passed with exception—Test case as described passed but an anomaly occurred that was not directly related to the functionality being tested. Possible anomalies are as follows:
The test steps were modified based on the actual feature implementation.
The test setup was modified based on the actual feature implementation.
The test results did not exactly match what was expected although the feature performed as required.
•Defects—Identifier for any defect that was opened against the test. If you have an account with Cisco.com, you can use the Bug Toolkit to view information about defects.
