QualiSystems Orchestrates SDN Testing at EANTC Multi-Vendor Interoperability Showcase

March 18, 2014

QualiSystems today announces its participation in the multi-vendor Interoperability Showcase organized by the European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC) at the MPLS SDN World Congress, V6 World Congress and NFV & SDN Summit 2014 in Paris, March 18-24, 2014. QualiSystems, along with Ericsson, Huawei, Ixia, Metaswitch and Pica8 will highlight interoperability of SDN solutions at the summit.

This year’s EANTC showcase focuses on interoperability in the context of Software Defined Networks and mobile backhaul. QualiSystems participated in the SDN interoperability tests with CloudShell functioning as an orchestrator to facilitate service delivery. CloudShell demonstrated orchestration of SDN controllers to showcase interoperability between OpenFlow and non-OpenFlow enabled devices.

QualiSystems’ CloudShell offers IT infrastructure teams the means to deliver agile infrastructure for DevOps processes, speed time to value of complex cloud data center environments and build a solid foundation for agile SDN devtest cycles. The automation technology behind CloudShell is architected as an object-oriented framework encompassing heterogeneous infrastructure resource management, auto provisioning and reclamation, and self-service.

“QualiSystems is honored to be a part of the showcase and to demonstrate how SDN is changing the nature of network service delivery,” says Alex Henthorn-Iwane, vice-president of marketing for QualiSystems.  “SDN will create new opportunities for service providers to offer more agile network services to keep pace with the demands of cloud computing. QualiSystems’ CloudShell’s SDN orchestration helps service providers create network DevOps practice so that they can maintain an equally agile pace of service and network certification. Our role in the demo underscores our ability to add value in a mixed vendor and infrastructure environment.”
