Livingston has announced that its ongoing collaboration with Spirent Communications has been further expanded. This means that Livingston is now in a position to offer the Spirent TestCenter unified test platform on a rental basis across the whole of the EMEA region.
Capable of supporting Ethernet technologies, including 40 and 100 Gigabit, Spirent TestCenter provides a fully scalable unified Layer 2-7, object-oriented architecture for the seamless plug-in of new network protocols and triple/quad-play services. It simplifies the test process with its ability to emulate real network scenarios, along with its intuitive graphic user interface, easy-to-use visual programming environment and large suite of multi-protocol wizards facilitate the building of comprehensive test cases, so that defects can be quickly isolated and dealt with. This raises productivity and lowers the risk of errors arising. The extensible automation interface permits the building and integrating of custom automated test tools. In addition, Spirent TestCenter’s multi-user, multi-system client/server architecture allows engineering teams to engage in global collaborations.
“Livingston and Spirent have a longstanding relationship, working very closely together for many years,” states Fiona Booker, Business Development Manager for Livingston’s UK operations. “This is a major endorsement for us, showing how highly regarded our equipment rental services are and the unique value we can bring to the market.”
“Spirent TestCenter is the preferred choice for network equipment manufacturers, service providers and enterprises involved in the implementation of the latest integrated network technologies, reducing the time to test and lowering overall capital expenditure levels,” Tim Cruddas, EMEA Sales Manager for Spirent Communications adds. “Through our collaboration with Livingston we can now offer potential customers access to this cutting-edge technology while fully addressing their specific budgetary requirements.”
