Tokalabs was conceived in 2013 by an expert team of development test engineers with networking backgrounds. Teams in the networking space struggled to keep up with the expanding queue of test cases that needed to be automated as well as maintaining the growing number of devices that needed to be tested. Engineers would oftentimes spend more time rewiring, configuring, and waiting for resources to be released than they actually spent on development and test. The expert team at Tokalabs wanted to find a solution.
By leveraging their expertise in networking and the advances in virtualization and SDN, the team at Tokalabs was able to carve out a revolutionary way to manage network resources and make the automation process incredibly simple. This new innovation would speed up the ability to execute test cycles while also increasing the quality of the products being released.
In 2016, Tokalabs would be incubated by the global switching manufacturer, Allied Telesis, to utilize their existing SDN technology and create a new solution that would perfect software defined network management and automation for both lab and production environments. Tokalabs’ Software Defined Labs (SDL) technology was officially born, and in 2017, began incorporating a wider range of SDN and switching vendors into their platform. Today, the SDL solution has become the perfect tool for not only QA/Test teams but all teams across the IT space including network admins, developers, PoC and Sales teams, and system integrators.
