Testing router code before deployment

Just curious what testing protocol people use with router code (IOS or 
JunOS for example) when considering deployment of a new version. Obviously 
the deployment would be made incrementally, but I wonder if you do anything 
more than running it in a lab router for a couple of weeks before the 
initial deployment.
