FEBRUARY 19, 2009 -- The TesLA (Test Lab Automation) Alliance, a non-profit industry alliance of IP test vendors, says it has made "significant strides" toward publishing the first test automation industry standards. The initial proposal of the TesLA standard will be presented for review at the alliance's quarterly meeting February 25, 2009 at Ixia's iSimCity in Santa Clara, CA.

The standards proposal will address the authoring, reporting, and lab management aspects of test lab automation. The alliance says that members with expertise in the areas covered in the proposal have driven the development of these standards in TesLA's standards committee.

"The momentum and delivery of version 1.0 of the test automation standards are an exciting step for the TesLA Alliance," said Adam Stein, marketing and membership committee chairman of the Alliance. "TesLA standards will enable operators and vendors to increase the velocity of their test cycles by double or triple and significantly reduce the time to market of networking products and carrier services."

TesLA also will present its first webinar, "Open Testing Standards Emerge: Enabling Seamless Sharable and Platform-Independent Automation," February 24 at 10 AM PST. Presented by HP ProCurve's Vince Mendoza, the webinar also will be available later on the TesLA web site. You can register for the free webinar at https://ixmeeting.webex.com/ixmeeting/j.php?ED=112721097&RG=1&UID=0.

The TesLA alliance is open for any companies involved in network test and measurement.
