This white paper examines the licensing and distribution options available to developers, publishers and distributors of plugins for the OpenTAP test automation platform. These plugins are created by the gamut of OpenTAP ecosystem participants – OpenTAP users, integrators and other third-parties, as well as by Keysight – and serve to expand the functionality of the platform and accommodate different hardware configurations. If you’ve created an OpenTAP plugin, it merits thoughtful consideration of licensing and distribution options.
OpenTAP was prominently featured in the OpenTAP booth (Hall 9, stand F57). Keysight's message was "Test private networks of the future, today!" with a mission to introduce Keysight (and OpenTAP) to the ecosystem as a key player in next-generation industrial networks and automation, highlighting extended test solution portfolio that includes radio planning and site acceptance, and monitoring and assuring private 5G networks, with a foundation build on OpenTAP.
