Fast-PMA

Persistent Management Agent

The Persistent Management Agent (PMA) is used to allow Network Management Systems to manage DPU systems that may not be on-line. This is particularly useful in systems where the DPU’s are line-powered and may not have power at any given point in time.

Inango’s Fast-PMA supports both G.fast and G.hn DPUs but is designed to extend easily for other technologies. It acts as an intelligent proxy device for each of the managed DPUs, storing commands until they can be executed, saving system configuration and more.  It also include the PMAA (aggregation) function necessary to support many devices on a server.

 

The Fast-PMA communicates with deployed devices via standard Netconf, ensuring full independence from the DPU provider. But it also allows for northbound interfaces to the NMS over SNMP for easier integration with existing services. (Note: SNMP interworking may require some customization).
Moreover, since it is based on OpenDaylight, it can easily be extended by adding SDN functionality for network virtualization (an optional add-on).

 

Yocto IDE (YDE)

Yocto Development Environment

YDE by Inango Systems is a tool designed for programmers working in a Yocto environment. It is based on the popular Eclipse IDE with a plugin developed by Inango that adds Yocto-specific features.

Not all of your programmers need to be Yocto gurus. YDE hides many of the internal details and intricacies of Yocto so that your developers can concentrate on developing their own code. Using YDE, it is much simpler to navigate around the source code of a Yocto distro, make changes to files, add new recipes, perform bitbake operations and much more.
 


Navigating all of the project sources via the recipe tree and by layer

Work on source files arranged in a standard tree of folders

Automatically creates patches in integration layer after code changes

Simplifies syncing sources to the latest versions

Build full images or perform bitbake operation on individual recipes

Redirection from compile-time errors to source code

Work on multiple projects simultaneously


ZIKIT Test Engine

An Automated Test Engine

ZIKIT is based on an improved version of the Robot test framework (robotframework.org) along with sets of keywords with which a huge variety of tests may be written.
We use ZIKIT at Inango for testing everything we write: from web-driven user interfaces, management schemes, network traffic handling and stress, regression and system testing.
Our engine is available for free along with the standard (Robot) keywords; the full set of our keywords are available under license.
 
We have pre-written test suites for specific purposes (available under license), including:
Yocto testing
Tests dependency definitions (missing, redundant or indirect).
Build all required configurations automatically
G.fast/PMA tests
A suite of tests for G.fast DPU equipment, including interactions with the PMA.
Management tests
Automatic testing of management interfaces via supported schemes (Netconf, SNMP, TR-069, web and CLI). Table walks, get/sets and more.

Virtual Services

Unleashing the potential for SP end-user services

Virtual Services is a service delivery platform that enables Service Providers to offer a consistent, fast and scalable way to deploy an unlimited range of end-user services offerings, Unleashing the potential of the home-routers yet avoiding their limitations.
 

It is based on a Service Launcher that runs at a data-center and acts as a virtual extension to the on-premise routers. The Launcher communicates with a small (one-time) client that is integrated on the router on one hand and to the range of end-user services on the other.It is the platform on which all of the services are deployed.

Inango Toolbox

Software Configuration Management Suite

A suite of integrated tools for Software Configuration Management. Enjoy the power and freedom of open-source tools but in a tested and fully integrated environment, ready for immediate use.
 



We have taken industry-standard, but independent, SCM tools and fused them in to a smooth and seamless flow that spans the entire development cycle. The tools are integrated via scripts and add-ons we have developed for that purpose. This creates a unified and robust process for all developers covering design, bug and feature tracking, code reviews, version control, continuous integration and, optionally, automated testing. It can also be used to communicate with your strategic partners about issues that are of interest to them.

The toolbox is highly configurable so you can tailor it to your own needs if you wish (or ask about Inango’s customization services). Using the toolbox will save you months of definition, installation, integration, configuring and testing of the tools themselves.
Want to try it out? Have a look for yourself in our sandbox at demo.inango.com.
