"Lab managers in Network Equipment Manufacturers and Data Centers are being challenged daily to meet aggressive product release dates while reducing their budgets," said Eli Laufer, Lepton’s Senior Vice President of Product Management. "Test Automation is the key enabler that will empower them to reach their objectives, and Lepton’s ColdFusion1 platform provides them with an ideal lab connectivity solution to facilitate the process quickly and cost-effectively.
