HCL Technologies Limited (Hindustan Computers Limited) is an Indian multinational technology company, headquartered in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India.
Software major HCL Technologies on Monday launched an Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based "HCL Turbo", an 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 AI and analytics to plan test scenarios and provide automatic test orchestration.
"HCL Turbo provides a comprehensive end-to-end network testing solution for networks, devices, and applications that allows service providers to reduce risk regarding technology, reduce operational expenditures, and accelerate time-to-market for new service launches," said GH Rao, President of Engineering and R&D Services, HCL Technologies.
HCL is directly addressing this shift by introducing an AI-based test lifecycle automation platform that seamlessly integrates into existing testing environments .
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.
