Viavi Partners with University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory
Today I am delighted to announce a major partnership between Viavi Solutions and The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL).
UNH-IOL is one of the most renowned independent providers of broad-based testing and standards conformance services for the networking and data communications industry. The industry’s top equipment manufacturers and service providers work with the laboratory to test, collect feedback on and improve their technology portfolios. UNH-IOL also provides members with confidential test reports that are recognized throughout the data communications industry as evidence of interoperability and conformance to technical standards.
Viavi is a pioneer in Storage Network Test, with market-leading instruments, software and platforms addressing the predominant protocols and speeds. These solutions support manufacturer R&D and help field installers deploy and troubleshoot data centers. In line with this tradition of innovation and industry leadership, Viavi is teaming up with UNH-IOL to enhance our offerings. Specifically:
- UNH-IOL will provide extended lab infrastructure to Viavi, and serve as a beta customer, for product R&D testing
- UNH-IOL will integrate Viavi software solutions into its test services.
- The two organizations will jointly engage with Viavi customers and service providers who also use UNH-IOL on technology initiatives including Open Networking (white box switches) and Carrier Ethernet.
The partnership will initially focus on Viavi’s Medusa Labs Test Tools. MLTT is the industry’s leading application-based data- and signal-integrity testing solution for companies developing servers, switches, host bus adapters (HBAs), Ethernet network interface cards (NICs), converged network adapters (CNAs), and other storage equipment for next-generation converged storage networks. With a comprehensive feature set and focus on simplifying testing, MLTT helps manufacturers develop higher-quality products and reach the market faster using comprehensive benchmarking, data integrity, and stress-test tools to uncover and eliminate a wide range of data corruption, lockup, and sensitivity issues.
