Tools increase test productivity for triple-play service development and deployment

2 November 2005 Test & Measurement

Sole local distributor of Agilent Technologies' test & measurement products, Concilium Technologies, has announced that Agilent used the Supercomm show in Chicago to unveil test and management solutions that address the challenges arising from the convergence of voice, video and data (triple-play). The solutions will soon be available locally.

Says Concilium MD, Steve Alves: "These tools - the Agilent N2X, Agilent Network Tester, Agilent Distributed Network Analyzer and Agilent NgN Analysis System - help service providers, network equipment manufacturers and cable providers ensure the performance and reliability of next-generation networks. The tools help analyse the end user's quality of experience (QoE), which is a key factor in accelerating the adoption of new services.

Says Werner Huettemann, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Computing and Networking Solutions, "Our converged test solutions can increase tester productivity, eliminate test bottlenecks and accelerate the deployment of triple-play services."

"With South Africa not far behind the rest of the world, service providers already are looking for tools to test these services before offering them to the public, and these tools are perfect for this environment," comments Alves.

* The Agilent N2X multiservices test solution is designed for use by network equipment manufacturers and service providers to cost-effectively and rapidly emulate real-world usage scenarios by providing unique insight into the QoE of each individual subscriber's service while the network is fully loaded with traffic. This allows the testing of new network architectures and elements in ways that resemble the end-user's triple-play service experience.

* In an industry first, the new version of Agilent Network Tester allows the emulation of thousands of proprietary-application users while also being able to measure their impact on delay-sensitive voice and video application performance. It provides a unique insight into an application-aware device's system performance limits and can simultaneously emulate multiple denial-of-service attacks.

* The Agilent Distributed Network Analyzer PRO allows users to access the critical QoE of customers and to quickly isolate root causes. It incorporates a wide variety of access interfaces in a small, portable platform with a wireless LAN user interface. New triple-play measurements include support for HSDPA in mobile broadband networks, video protocol analysis, and a capability of directly correlating VoIP voice quality with network impairments.

* Agilent's NgN Analysis System is a probe-based, non-intrusive monitoring and troubleshooting system for VoIP networks. Complete end-to-end call and performance analysis enables service providers to drill down to quickly troubleshoot QoE problems.

All of these solutions are already available locally.
