Iliad Products

t3: Switch

This is the third generation testing software solution created by Iliad. The focus is to deliver the power of service virtualisation to payments testing, marrying virtualisation with the specific technical requirements of the payments industry.

t3: Portal

t3 Portal delivers the full power of t3 Switch in a dynamic, more intuitive and controlled manner. This means that less technical “investment” is required to perform critical tasks in the testing of traditional payment methods and the adoption of emerging ones.
