OSA- Our Capability

Our capability is your gain

Vigorous product testing means we are able to sell leading products for a particular technology. It’s a core capability and in this space, OSA stands alone.

The OSA National Testing Laboratory has been a huge benefit to our customers … and to several global companies. Engineering resources from HP/Aruba Networking, Teleste, Luxriot, Calix and Microsens have remotely connected to the OSA lab to test new product features, or to rectify bugs. The ability to connect remotely means speedy fixes and improved processes.
