The OpenTAP project aims to foster contribution, collaboration and creation across test and measurement ecosystem
Keysight Technologies has announced the addition of four new participants to the OpenTAP project for open source test automation, which it launched with Nokia in May 2019.
The project comprises a growing community of developers dedicated to the idea of effortless automation.
The core of OpenTAP is a test sequencer, with the community continuously adding plugins and solutions that support faster development, new functionality and optimization in test. Through these contributions and the enhanced collaboration possible with its open-core approach, OpenTAP is inspiring developers to innovate automation solutions in testing and measurement, and beyond.
The four new members
The four new participants are 5G-VINNI, Page Electronica NV, TandM Solutions and Tokalabs.
5G Verticals INNovation Infrastructure (5G-VINNI), a 5GPPP H2020-ICT project, is a European funded project with over 20 major industry participants, aiming to accelerate the uptake of 5G in Europe by providing an end-to-end (E2E) facility that validates the performance of new 5G technologies by operating trials of advanced vertical sector services.
Based in Poperinge, Belgian, Page Electronica NV assembles and retails technological products and offers the latest in electronic manufacturing services (EMS) and testing techniques.
TandM Solutions is a test development specialist in radio frequency (RF) design validation and compliance test systems, based in Fleet, UK.
Tokalabs is a provider of software defined solutions offering a simple, push-button approach to automating and sandboxing hybrid network resources and labs, based in San Jose, CA.
The advantages of joining OpenTAP
“We are excited to join OpenTAP. It allows us to start with a proven foundation of automation capability eliminating the need to build something wholly custom and use our resources and people in more effective ways,” said Luc Page, CEO of Page Electronica.
Keith Andrews, general manager of Tokalabs agreed and stated, “We can now encapsulate our IP as plugins and build new, innovative solutions through re-use, not re-invention, to leverage our products and platform into new and exciting markets.”
Dan Thomasson, vice president of Keysight Labs, concluded “OpenTAP’s architecture is designed for extensibility, making it flexible for many different use cases. It is exciting to see all the ways it is being put to use by the growing community.”
