Keysight Technologies Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company
that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate
innovation to connect and secure the world, in conjunction with Nokia
(NYSE: NOK), the company that creates the technology to connect the
world, today announced the launch of the Open Test Automation Project

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:

OpenTAP provides an open-source, scalable architecture that enhances and
accelerates the development of automation solutions within the test and
measurement (T&M) ecosystem, with demonstrated success in 5G network
equipment manufacturing.

The OpenTAP project includes a growing community of developers dedicated
to the idea of effortless automation. The core technology is a test
sequencer, to which the community is continuously adding plugins and
solutions that lead to faster development, new functionality and
optimization in test. Through these contributions and the enhanced
collaboration possible with its open-core approach, OpenTAP is inspiring
creators to innovate automation solutions in T&M and beyond. Keysight
and Nokia previously demonstrated early capabilities and outcomes of
OpenTAP at MWC19 Barcelona, in February 2019.

“Our goal with OpenTAP is to enable unprecedented levels of
collaboration in the test and measurement industry and to benefit all
participants in this open-source project,” said Jay Alexander, Chief
Technology Officer of Keysight Technologies. “Co-launching OpenTAP with
Nokia reflects our commitment to creating software-centric solutions
that accelerate innovation through simplicity, scalability and speed.”

Advancing what is sometimes disjointed, homegrown and resource-intensive
efforts, which consume valuable capacity in development and support,
Keysight and Nokia share a mutual goal of creating new economies of
scale, accelerating time-to-market of automated test solutions, as well
as the products they test.

Erja Sankari, Vice President of Nokia’s Supply Chain Engineering
organization, added, “For many years Nokia has relied on either closed,
commercial test-automation products, or completely homegrown platforms
that consume precious resources — budget, support and maintenance.
Building on OpenTAP fosters innovation in test optimization and
efficiency, ultimately reducing our cost-of-test and project risk.”
