The Shared Lab Challenge
The constantly evolving communication networks require development of new Ethernet network devices, being either traditional hardware implementations or virtual, software based implementations – Virtual Network Functions (VNF). In both cases the devices need to be tested during development to troubleshoot and validate the functioning of the new devices.
Product Re-Design in Two Weeks: A Customer Success Story
In this article, we want to share an example of how we strive with each request to meet and exceed our customer’s expectations. This example is taken from our recent interaction with a Tier-1 US wireless operator on our Radiocomm RF component products.
Setting the Bar for Layer 1 Switches: Why ColdFusion?
Lepton’s ColdFusion Layer 1 test automation switch enables the automation of 100% of lab infrastructure. With ColdFusion, network topology changes can be performed with the click of a button, or by integrating QA test scripts with ColdFusion APIs.
5G Basics: Non-Standalone vs Standalone (NSA vs SA)
5G is the fifth generation of mobile communication technology; revolutionary with an achievable downlink speed of 1000Mbps under ideal conditions. The deployment of 5G is consequential, but complicated with one contributing factor to the complexity being the two difference 5G network modes.
Valkyrie - Xena Networks
Valkyrie is a full-featured Layer 2-3 stateless traffic generator and analysis platform. It is used to configure and generate Ethernet traffic up at all speeds up to 400GE, and analyze how network devices and services perform in response, making it perfect for most lab-based data-plane test scenarios.
New Partnership with Lepton Systems
It is with great excitement that Acentury Inc. announces our latest channel North American partnership with Lepton Systems. Founded in 2016 by a group of engineers with extensive experience in optical transmission and software architecture and development, Lepton Systems develops Layer 1 switches to automate the connection of the physical layer in a variety of test environments.
