About this talk

In pandemic environments like COVID-19, having a lab automation solution to remotely setup & configure lab networks is a key tool for business continuity. However the benefits do not end there, as a test lab automation solution reduces testing costs while at the same time accelerating the introduction of new products and services - providing measurable value to the business. About this Webinar: This webinar will review how you can automate your hardware test lab so it can be managed remotely 24/7 from anywhere in the world via a novel, software-defined and non-blocking layer 1 switching matrix based on disaggregated switching platforms. Attend this webinar to get an overview of this highly innovative and cost-effective approach to test lab automation that uses commodity white box Ethernet switches to deliver a flexible and scalable VirtualWire fabric for software defined test lab automation. In this webinar you will learn how to: • Speed up time to service and reduce opex with remote software reconfiguration of your lab topology • Reduce CapEx with commodity white box switches instead of proprietary Layer 1 switches • Share test ports across labs to improve the ROI on expensive test generators • Increase efficiency by sharing resources across multiple geographically diverse lab locations • Mix media and port speeds to increase flexibility and reduce the need to buy dedicated ports Who should attend: Lab Managers from Service Providers, Enterprise and public sector institutions who want to automate their test labs and Resellers/VARs who focus on disaggregated switching solutions and/or test lab automation.
