Network Equipment Manufacturer: Solutions Overview
Quality Products from the Start
Are your converged network products really ready for market?Do you know if you are testing the latest technologies and standards?Can you guarantee coverage of all required device testing?
Network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) developing networking devices must create products that conform to standardized protocols, function under heavy load scenarios, and perform reliably under a broad range of conditions. The increasing complexity of protocols and services are causing test development costs to rise due to a lack of testing expertise and increasing test cycle time.
Customers demand that products have the latest technologies and implement the latest trends. Network reliability must be maintained during new product adoption. New networking devices need to demonstrate market leadership, and can make or break a company. Big revenues are on the line, and one thing can be certain - customers won't compromise on product quality. If customers feel you've given them a poorly tested product, they'll delay purchases and negatively impact your bottom line. As a result, you must build quality into your products from the start.
