Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Absolute Analysis Leadership in Protocol Test

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Feb 23, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Industry leading analysts Frost & Sullivan conferred upon Absolute Analysis its coveted 2010 Global Product Differentiation Excellence Award recognizing the company's Investigator(TM) product line for its high-quality, yet affordable solutions for the intensely competitive protocol test market.

(Logo: Investigator(TM), Absolute Analysis' key solution for high-speed serial data communications is considered superior in the protocol test equipment market, as it is compatible across multiple protocols and application segments. The Investigator(TM) high-speed serial communications test solution supports generation, analysis, measurement, delay and replacement of traffic across a wide variety of protocols, including Fibre Channel, Ethernet, Serial Front Panel Data Port (sFPDP), Avionics Full-Duplex Ethernet (AFDX) and Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI(TM)), at full-line rates ranging from 10Mbps to 10Gbps. Automated testing is facilitated through a 'C' API and Investigator's unique protocol editor allows editing or creation of protocols by the end user, making it ideal for applications where details of the protocol cannot be disclosed. Applications range from development, manufacturing and quality assurance to field service and support.

"The architecture of the Investigator(TM) allows each product to work individually or with one another, resulting in a unified system that is fully backward and forward compatible with all generations," says Frost & Sullivan research analyst, Srihari Padmanabhan. "This enables end users to test any network without compromising quality." "Also, other features such as post-capture filtering would work as usual with all the user-defined protocols," notes analyst, Srihari. "Altogether, this exclusive, highly integrated single platform solution enables time-correlated, multi-protocol, and multi-speed testing." Investigator(TM) can be found in many market segments including military communications, avionics, federal and government, telecom, networking, storage, and enterprises and its flexibility permits applications from simple protocol analysis to multi-port, multi-protocol, multi-function testing.

"Absolute Analysis' new 10Gbps SFP+ analyzer has been pre-ordered by customers in the military and aerospace industry for embedded systems development and advanced military applications, and in the data communications and telecommunications markets for storage development and networking applications," observes Srihari.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated superior features and functionality as well as quality and complexity. The company has also exhibited high levels of customization, excellent product mix, and met the requirements of its target market.

Frost & Sullivan's Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development.
