QualityLogic has announced that the Beta 1 installment of its SEP 2 Accelerator Program will be released before June 30. The program has enabled the continued development of definitive SEP 2 conformance and interoperability test systems.  QualityLogic plans to close the program to new participants on June 30.

The Beta 1 release will include 90 client and server conformance tests for APPS, COM, DCAP, DI, DNS, DRLC, DSGN, EDEV, RSPS, TM, TP, SUB, TLS, CERT, FSA and UPT, and will include the first tests for Metering. The tests represent the most thorough standard conformance tests defined for these function sets. Additional detail on the planned Beta 1 release will be made available to Accelerator Partners as the release date approaches.

The SEP 2 Accelerator Program, which offers significant discounts on the SEP 2 test products from QualityLogic, will be closed to new participants on June 30. This is to ensure that all participants receive the attention appropriate to beta sites.

After the close of the Accelerator Program on June 30, non-participant companies will still be able to license the SEP 2 test tools at standard prices. As of July 1, standard prices will increase to recognize the value added in the Beta 1 release.
