HCL Technologies (HCL), a leading global technology company, today announced the launch of HCL TURBO, an artificial intelligence (AI)-based, end-to-end testing automation platform, aimed at communication service providers. HCL TURBO integrates with existing testing tools and equipment, and delivers intelligent test planning in which Internet bots utilize Al and analytics to plan test scenarios and provide automatic test orchestration.

“The emergence of virtualized and software-defined networks has significantly complicated network testing and fragmented accountability,” said GH Rao, President of Engineering and R&D Services, HCL Technologies. “HCL is directly addressing this shift by introducing an Al-based test lifecycle automation platform that seamlessly integrates into existing testing environments. HCL TURBO automates all phases of the test lifecycle from planning and execution to reporting, and works seamlessly across networks, devices, and application testing. It can be deployed in the cloud, on-premise, or in hybrid environments. In a beta customer deployment, a leading service provider reduced operational expenditures by 30 percent by re-using and integrating with their existing test infrastructure.”

“As service providers invest in new technologies as part of their digital transformation, they are increasingly looking for testing solutions that help minimize the risk associated with deploying new technology,” Said Curtis Price, Vice President, Infrastructure Services, IDC. “HCL TURBO utilizes Al, analytics, and automation to offer significant advances over traditional testing solutions. TURBO provides a comprehensive end-to-end network testing solution for networks, devices, and applications that allow service providers to reduce technology risk, reduce operational expenditures, and accelerate time-to- market for new service launches.”

HCL TURBO is entering the market at a time when product testing, previously handled by device manufacturers, is now the responsibility of service providers. For instance, with the recent introduction of software-defined networks and network functions virtualization, service providers are responsible for testing whenever there is a software update.
