|May 30, 2014 03:00 PM EDT
Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that the Agilent
HDMI 2.0 6G test solution has been selected by Simplay
Labs after the HDMI Forum certified it as an official compliance
Agilent’s solution provides the widest coverage for HDMI physical layer
compliance test. Certification was achieved using the collaborative
framework of Simplay Labs Authorized Test Centers, the world’s leading
HD testing service provider, with locations in Sunnyvale, California;
Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen, China; and Seoul, Korea.
In the new HDMI 2.0 specification, the transmission bandwidth of 18 Gbps
is one of the most important extensions that allow 4K image transmission
with 4:4:4 full-color format. The Agilent
ParBERT 81250A and new AWG
M8190A support 18 Gbps physical-level testing, including 6G
physical-level jitter tolerance and eye diagram, which are important in
identifying IC level performance.
“We’re glad to be working with Simplay Labs, delivering the 6G testing
solution,” said Stefan Friebe, HDMI program lead for Agilent. “This
solution will help Simplay Labs’ HDMI ATCs do faster compliance testing
and development for many R&D customers.”
Simplay Labs is launching the testing service to 6G bps HDMI 2.0
products. The majority of its Authorized Test Centers use the Agilent
E4887A-007 high-end TMDS signal generator solution because of its
full range of capabilities, performance and dedication in presenting
serial data generation and analysis test capabilities to accelerate HDMI
2.0 and 1.4 tests.
“Simplay Labs is excited to announce the HDMI 2.0 6Gbps testing service
is available with the support from Agilent,” said Solomon Langley,
general manager of Simplay Labs. “The ongoing collaboration between
Agilent and Simplay Labs to deliver HDMI 2.0 testing solutions ensures
that our customers have compliant products across the extensive HDMI
The Agilent HDMI 2.0 test solution covers all physical layer compliance
tests, such as source and sink test. Agilent HDMI
compliance software N5990A is available to provide test automation
for fast and easy compliance testing from the company’s solution partner BitifEye.
“BitifEye continues to cooperate closely with Agilent and development
partners such as Simplay Labs on the rapid implementation and support of
comprehensive automated HDMI test solutions,” said Alexander Schmitt,
CEO of BitifEye.

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
In this power panel at @...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be.
We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
