AS3 Secure Messaging Products are Drummond Certified™ in 1Q14 Interoperability Test Event

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 19, 2014 Drummond Group Inc., the trusted leader in interoperability software testing, today announced the completion of its AS3-1Q14 automated interoperability test event in which three new products from Axway, Cleo and OpenText GXS are now Drummond Certified™.

AS3, an IEFT messaging specification standard (RFC 4823), strengthens file transfer protocol (FTP) with digital security and receipt validation. This allows vendor applications to communicate any data, including EDI, over the Internet.

“Interoperable AS3 software products are absolutely essential in today’s global markets because they deliver efficiency, cost savings and security,” said Rik Drummond, CEO of Drummond Group. “The commitment shown by Axway, Cleo and OpenText GXS to test and update their software certifications based on the AS3 messaging protocol addresses industry requirements because AS3 is well suited to provide high levels of FTP scripting, applications and security, to name a few of its values.” InSitu®, Drummond Group's testing automation tool, was applied during this AS3 interoperability test event to provide participants with more time to focus on solving any interoperability issues rather than focusing on sending all the messages exchanged. The InSitu® technology allows the tester to automate the execution and evaluation of the test cases used for interoperability testing, as well as sending and receiving AS3 messaging.

Reflections from an Interop Veteran and Alum

When I returned to the Fiber Mountain™ offices in Connecticut after exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas 2015, I couldn’t help but think about how much the event has evolved through the years. I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization
