ONPATH

Through the acquisition of ONPATH Technologies in 2012, NetScout delivers a proven solution for creating a high-performance test automation infrastructure for Enterprise and Service Provider customers. By providing the industry’s most scalable and secure technology, the productivity, optimization, and scale of a test automation infrastructure can be significantly improved – saving valuable time, space, power and, most importantly, capital. NetScout solutions also help test automation applications provide instant equipment sharing and remote monitoring, test access, and management via HorizON Management Software.

Why Test Automation?
Product and application testing is an intensive process that needs to move fast but often takes a tremendous amount of time and resources to complete correctly. The right test automation infrastructure enables the productivity, optimization, and scale required. It provides the opportunity to test products and services faster, increase overall profitability, and establish 24×7 test operations from anywhere in the world. Test automation enables the sharing of expensive tools, increasing overall equipment utilization, and the acceleration of repeatable processes. And it can help coordinate budgets and staffing, implement a truly dynamic topology, and expand regression or interoperability testing globally.

Test Automation Challenges
Deploying a test automation infrastructure, however, poses a significant set of challenges for most organizations. Multiple test and verification routines can be especially error-prone when performed manually. Poor equipment utilization and control is typical when there is limited remote access and sharing. The tools required are often expensive and many budgets are only getting smaller. And simulating equipment and cable break failures across a broad range of networks, speeds, or media can be maddening.

The below diagram shows the benefits of a streamlined topology offered by an NetScout solution versus a traditional solution requiring the use of patch panels and the duplication of expensive test tools:

Product and application testing is an intensive process that needs to move fast but often takes a tremendous amount of time and resources to complete correctly. The right test lab automation infrastructure enables the productivity, optimization, and scale required. It provides the opportunity to test products and services faster, increase overall profitability, and establish 24×7 test operations from anywhere in the world. Test lab automation enables labs to share expensive tools, increase overall equipment utilization, and accelerate repeatable processes. And it can help coordinate budgets and staffing, implement a truly dynamic topology, and expand regression or interoperability testing globally.

Traditional versus NetScout Solution
In order to perform test procedures, traditional network topologies make use of patch panels to access tools such as test generators and network analyzers. These tools are expensive – sometimes thousands of dollars per port. As test requirements increase, the need for additional test tools and patch panels arises. This can result in a very expensive and complicated network test topology, such as the Traditional diagram below.

Through the acquisition of ONPATH Technologies in 2012, NetScout offers a solution that provides access to a customer’s existing equipment, enabling guaranteed moves, adds, and changes of connections to be performed using a simple software interface. No more moving cables using highly error-prone manual methods. Whether performed onsite or from a remote location, the NetScout solution enables customers to increase the efficiency of their existing equipment without the need for purchasing additional test ports, allowing them to conserve time, increase utilization, and save money.

CyberSecurity
The information traveling across networks is growing in both volume and sensitivity. Security measures at the facility level have far outweighed the efforts and money spent at the network level. A comprehensive cyber secure infrastructure enables the protection, visibility, and change management needed for high-performance networks. It helps protect against cyber attacks and isolate or secure segments while improving reliability and downtime. CyberSecurity initiatives to monitor more networks and applications can be achieved while increasing the utilization of existing resources. A facility or network consolidation, along with personnel turnover and training risks, can be well managed with lower budgets.

Public Sector – Federal Networking
The information traveling across networks is growing in importance, volume, and sensitivity. Federal networks require specialized design and support to manage the different information classification levels, security access, and user needs. A comprehensive Federal network infrastructure enables the protection, visibility, and change management needed for high-performance networks. It helps protect against cyber attacks and isolate or secure segments while improving reliability and downtime. Federal network initiatives to monitor more networks and applications can be achieved while increasing the utilization of existing resources. A facility or network consolidation, along with personnel turnover and training risks, can be well managed with lower budgets.
