JDSU adds one-way delay to T-BERD/MTS 6000A

MAY 26, 2010 -- JDSU (NASDAQ: JDSU; and TSX: JDU) has introduced what it asserts is the first field-portable test tool for “one-way delay” testing. An enhancement to the T-BERD/MTS-6000A Multi-Services Application Module (MSAM) provides measurement accuracy 10X greater than most service level agreements (SLAs) currently require for Ethernet backhaul and mission-critical applications, according to JDSU.

This new feature is designed to help measure and troubleshoot service delay in networks that carry real-time voice, video, and data services in Ethernet backhaul applications, as well services in government and financial networks.

JDSU says its One-Way Delay test feature enables providers to measure the delay of Ethernet, IPv4, and IPv6 traffic. This can be critical for industries with real-time applications such as voice over IP (VoIP), in which delay causes quality issues, and financial transactions that depend on nearly instantaneous transmissions.

“One-way delay is a common factor in the degradation of voice, video, and data service quality and reliability,” said Mirna Mekic, director in JDSU’s Communications Test and Measurement business segment. “The JDSU One-Way Delay test feature for the T-BERD/MTS-6000A MSAM gives those responsible for network operations a simple and accurate method to perform a critical one-way SLA delay measurement that can characterize network performance. This unique feature provides valuable information useful in network turn-up and troubleshooting so that carriers can assure SLAs and optimize their networks to enhance quality of service.”
