Today's labs—whether in high-tech equipment manufacturing organizations or large carriers and service providers—face numerous challenges. They must ensure the quality of increasingly complex services and products, meet tight time-to-market deadlines, and support a globally distributed team with diverse skill sets. And they must do all this while minimizing the ever-increasing costs associated with state of the art resources in a complex and expensive lab. Increasingly, lab efficiency affects the bottom line; and the test lab is caught in the middle, trying to find a way to do more in less time.


  1. Testbeds are monolithic and are not shared; teams compete for resources, leading to conflicts and delays.
  2. Lab configuration is manual, time consuming and error-prone—leading to unacceptable downtime.
  3. There are potentially infinite combinations of heterogeneous software and hardware products in the lab, requiring experts and specialists to correctly configure testbeds.
  4. There is inadequate visibility into resource availability and utilization due to lack of systemized and detailed reporting. An organization's thought leaders are thus unable to make informed decisions.
  5. Inventory lists are manually maintained so are never accurate or up to date.
