QualiSystems Integrates Enterprise Software Framework with FiberZone Switch Improving Test Lab Management

Companies combine solutions to convert network testing labs into cloud environments

SANTA CLARA, California, January 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

QualiSystems announced today it has added the ability to integrate its TestShell enterprise software framework with FiberZone's Automated Fiber Management (AFM) Layer 1 Switch to allow customers to perform lab management and provisioning remotely.  QualiSystems' TestShell, an enterprise software framework, offers complete lab management and device provisioning that enable engineers to optimize lab performance, increase testing coverage, and expand equipment utilization even while working remotely. FiberZone's AFM switches perform fast switching, support both multimode and single mode fibers.  Together, the two companies can provide users with direct access to FiberZone hardware by adding remote cloud-based capabilities to the physical lab.

FiberZone specializes in fiber infrastructure by facilitating remote and automated end-to-end connectivity control via automated patching.  QualiSystems' focus on networks, storage and cloud infrastructure provisioning complements FiberZone's superior optical performance including scalability and high reliability.  This new integration is both cost-effective and optimizes network testing labs, giving QualiSystems and FiberZone's customers the ability to improve the quality of their products and services.

Layer-1 switch integration provides an increase in overall speed, and scalability.  Furthermore, lab set up time and efforts will be reduced when deploying the AFM switch combined with TestShell because of automated connectivity, reduced cabling and speedier provisioning to complete test set-up according to the individual customers' requirements.  Beyond controlling Layer-1 switches, TestShell provides complete support for network, storage and test equipment via a large embedded set of integrated tools including:

  • CLI (Command Line Interface) - allows the use of common scripting languages to automate topology provisioning and configuration
  • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) - including SNMPv1, SNMPv2, and SNMPv3
  • Graphical User Interface (GUI) automation - driving web, java and Microsoft based applications.

"This integration solution is offered to network equipment manufacturers, service providers, datacenters and enterprises that benefit from the added ability to provide a powerful lab management platform that optimizes resource utilization and lab performance," says Bill Simmelink, FiberZone Networks CEO.  "We look forward to continued success with the AFM family, now enhanced by the inclusion of QualiSystems' lab automation capabilities."

"The strengths of QualiSystems' TestShell combined with FiberZone's Layer-1 switch will convert lab management into a cloud environment for network and storage testing" said Eitan Lavie, vice president of Product & Marketing at QualiSystems.  "FiberZone is a trusted supplier of remote fiber connectivity solutions and this pairing brings additional benefits and capabilities to customers for setting up test environments in a cloud type self-servicing manner."

Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software in the hope of capturing value in IoT. Although IoT is relatively new in the market, it has already gone through many promotional terms such as IoE, IoX, SDX, Edge/Fog, Mist Compute, etc. Ultimately, irrespective of the name, it is about deriving value from independent software assets participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
