Q: I am looking for a way to automate running tests on switch features using a CT application. I am familiar with the popular call generator companies, but these are for bulk calling applications. I need to perform simple, short call scenarios on wireline /wireless switches, testing features like Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, 3-Way Calling, Speed Calling, etc. I want to develop a call script for each scenario. I have Dialogic hardware, but I don't want to spend time learning C++ or Visual Basic. Are you aware of any simplified, small call generator systems or software that is heavily GUI driven to work with a Dialogic card?

Specialized and customized training is also a key element of a design-for-success strategy, especially when dealing with a new technology. Such training can cut weeks to months off a designer's learning curve. Design and layout reviews, especially for the first designs submitted in a technology, can also be used to increase an analog designer's success.
