New product series "LiquidMetal" to implement automated testing for networks with TIS Inc.

On June 11, 2018, we will officially release “LiquidMetal”, a web service and a hardware appliance that together bring continuous automated testing to network system operation. The product leverages the power of SDN while at the same time solving a fundamental problem with SDN-based solutions: the difficulty of modeling the physical hardware of the production environment for use in the test environment. With LiquidMetal’s hardware appliance, people can integrate actual hardware into test environments, greatly improving the accuracy and usefulness of test results.

Axsh Co has a long-term investment in SDN technology, which we apply to building accurate duplicates of production environments. Differences between physical appliances and virtual appliances often cause problems when verifying correctness. LiquidMetal addresses this issue by integrating actual physical devices into the duplicated virtual network. In collaboration with our corporate partner TIS Inc., a prototype of LiquidMetal has been successfully deployed at Yamato System Development Co., Ltd., the IT and logistics arm of Yamato Transport, Japan’s largest parcel courier.

About LiquidMetal

  2. LiquidMetal Portal Gun
