Aeroflex has acquired Shenick Network Systems, a provider of virtual testing for next generation software defined networking, cementing a relationship that began two years ago.
The two companies have been partnering to enhance the capabilities of Aeroflex’s wireless infrastructure test products.
“Shenick provides Aeroflex with next generation technology in the rapidly growing virtual test market,” Len Borow, Aeroflex CEO said in a press release.
TeraVM can be used to build an elastic test bed, which scales both vertically as well as horizontally. The test bed can scale vertically from 1 Gigabit per second up to 1 Terabit per second by simply adding more industry standard hardware. Horizontally the elastic test bed scales across test locations which may be in the same building or the other side of the world.
A centrally deployed license server keeps track of available TeraVM licenses and allocates them on demand. With TeraVM, testers or developers in the United States can use the licenses during their work day and when they go home their counterparts in India or China could use the exact same licenses.
“We believe that this acquisition will help us continue to grow and maintain our leading market position in wireless infrastructure test equipment and to increase our gross margins and profitability while expanding our end markets,” Borow said.
