Nuera provides high-end communications switches that carry voice telephone traffic over Internet connections. These are increasingly being used by mid-level phone service providers to bypass traditional communication paths. Testing these systems has previously required custom testing hardware costing millions of dollars. The Clinic team has developed software that instead allows Nuera to use one of its own switches as a hardware test suite, eliminating this cost.
