JDSU Offers Industry-First Integrated Approach to Burst Testing for Ethernet Services

Nov 28, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- JDSU, the recipient of the 2012 Frost and Sullivan award for Ethernet Test Market Leadership , continues to help service providers improve customer experience by introducing complete test coverage for bursty data applications, comprising the majority of today's network traffic. JDSU has integrated burst testing enhancements into RFC 2544 and Y.1564 SamComplete(TM) automated test procedures for its T-BERD®/MTS platforms as well as its Ethernet Service Assurance solution, NetComplete®.

This critical test helps service providers identify buffer provisioning issues and verify committed burst sizes (CBSs) now specified in many service-level agreements (SLAs). In combination with JDSU award-winning TrueSpeed(TM) RFC 6349 test suite, service providers can verify correct provisioning of the expected buffers to reduce frame loss as well as verify performance and experience their network like their customers do.

JDSU worked with leading service providers who required this combination as part of their Ethernet service turn-up procedure. This new JDSU test functionality reduces repeat repair calls and provides these benefits: - Full automation and ease of use: Reduces complexity and operational expense through automated tools that minimizes technician time and expedites time to revenue - Repeatable reliability: Relies on standards-based test procedures such as RFC 2544, Y.1564, or RFC 6349 with clear pass/fail results for service providers based on the new MEF 23.1 recommendations - Improved customer experience: Ensures correct buffer handling so customers experience better network and application performance.

Use case: Verifying correct network buffer settings along with other key performance indicators and bandwidth profiles are important for controlling Ethernet frame loss, but it does not automatically ensure good application performance. JDSU combines tests for new performance measures into a single workflow with its award-winning TrueSpeed test based on RFC 6349 so service providers can experience their network like their customers do.

Join JDSU on December 6 for a complimentary webinar demonstration of our award-winning integrated burst-test solution.
