SAN JOSE, Calif., May 26 -- Continuum Photonics, a supplier of advanced photonic switch products, and EdenTree Technologies, a Camarillo developer of automation technology, have announced a strategic partnership to develop fully integrated solutions for optical test.
The companies demonstrated a remote manufacturing test application at Toolapalooza, Cisco Systems’ trade show for test tool solutions, last week in San Jose. They used EdenTree’s Connect_ET lab resource management application to remotely operate and switch optical instruments connected to a Continuum DirectLight IG switch located at Continuum’s headquarters in Billerica, Mass., near Boston.
Using EdenTree's Connect_ET product, users in San Jose could control the equipment located at Continuum to power cycle equipment, query and set connectivity (switch maps) between various equipment ports, conduct tests and receive test results.
"This is a powerful example of integration between our respective products, and highlights the value that can be delivered to the user through automation of the physical layer connectivity and proper test management," said Aaron Bent, Continuum's vice president of marketing. "We are seeing increasing examples of test and development engineers who realize that automation is critical to enabling the required level of quality and efficiency demanded of today's more complex optical components and systems."
