Welcome. We'd like to briefly introduce you to the IOL and then discuss the direction we'll be taking with this blog. Broadly speaking, we are involved in testing several types of networking, storage, and telecom technologies, including Ethernet, Broadband, Core/Telco, Consumer Electronics, Data Storage and High-Performance Computing to cost effectively meet network interoperability and conformance requirements for the industry. We currently have over twenty active testing programs (which we call consortia), that continue to evolve to meet our industry's needs. Our ongoing experience in efficiently scheduling, performing, and delivering these testing programs allows our consortia member companies to focus on delivering their products to market.
