IBS Group , a leading software development and IT services provider in Central
and Eastern Europe announces that Luxoft, a member of the IBS Group and a
global provider of advanced application and product development services,
unveiled Twister for OpenFlow at the SDN & OpenFlow World Congress in
Darmstadt, Germany.

Luxoft's Twister test automation platform is an open source test automation
framework designed specifically for network infrastructure markets and it is
now enhanced to support the OpenFlow protocol for software-defined networking
(SDN).

As a member of the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) and an active participant
in the semi-annual ONF PlugFest interoperability event, Luxoft is at the
forefront of engineering development services in the SDN market. In addition
to being leading edge networking technology, software-defined networks
separate network data and control planes while inserting a vendor-agnostic
interface between these layers thereby removing barriers to innovation in
network virtualization and programmability. SDN allows applications to
dynamically configure the network and allow accelerated changes to networking
services.

"Software-defined networking, combined with Cloud technologies, opens a new
world of innovation opportunities for telecommunication providers and
commercial enterprises. SDN and OpenFlow facilitate advanced services and
Cloud applications that make Luxoft ' s Twister for OpenFlow test automation
framework a compelling product for immediate improvements in product
development lifecycles, infrastructure costs, test planning and management,
and system uptime," said Vasiliy Suvorov, Vice President of Technology
Strategy at Luxoft.

Luxoft's Twister for OpenFlow framework gives vendors the ability to execute
and control parallel testing scripts run on multiple platforms, which speeds
up and standardizes the conformance and system testing phases of product
development. Luxoft's platform works with multiple OpenFlow controllers or
traffic generators and can handle complex test scenarios using the OpenFlow
protocol, controller command-line interfaces, or graphical user interfaces.
Twister's automated testing capability, enhanced with reporting and
statistics features, responds to ever-present tight release deadlines while
addressing an increased demand for quality in new, complex network products.

With Luxoft's Twister for OpenFlow, manufacturers can immediately implement
more efficient test processes and greatly extend the scope of their current
test coverage.

Mr. Suvorov added, " Our professional development services can further
accelerate the time-to-market for our clients '  products and improve their
overall development efficiency. "

Luxoft's Twister for OpenFlow framework delivers several important benefits
for telecom-related businesses:

•Switch / router engineering test automation for manageable and predictable
results

•Simultaneous application testing for greater efficiency in complex systems
scenarios

•Accelerated development test phases to reduce costs and time-to-market

•Extended test coverage to increase quality of the testing procedure

•One-stop, customizable open source platform to adapt to various project
demands
