Milpitas, Calif., October 15, 2008 -- JDSU today announced that the T-BERD/MTS-6000A Multi-Services Application Module has been selected by Deutsche Telekom to support the delivery of 10 GigE, SDH, OTN, and Fibre Channel-based networks.
10 GigE is deployed by operators like Deutsche Telekom in response to the demand for increased bandwidth services like T-Home and the corresponding strain on networks. Testing high-bandwidth services like IPTV has become a requirement beyond the access network because of the convergence of cost-effective Carrier Ethernet networks and high-bandwidth triple-play services. This convergence is complicated by the development and deployment of a number of new Ethernet technologies and significant qualification during the design and deployment phase is needed to ensure QoS of business and residential triple-play services.
"We are pleased to win this opportunity to work with Deutsche Telekom and look forward to long-term 10G services support for them with the T-BERD/MTS-6000A," said Jim Nerschook, vice president and general manager in JDSU's Communications Test and Measurement business segment. "Thanks to its multi-function capabilities, the T-BERD/MTS-6000A enables a quick return on capital investment, reduces mean time to repair and simplifies testing -- which reduces operational expenses."
With field applications for servicing Metro Core telecom networks, wireless/cable switch centers and backhaul networks, government telecommunications and network equipment manufacturer field installation and support groups, the T-BERD/MTS-6000A Multi-Services Application Module is the latest innovation for the award-winning, industry-leading Tâ��BERD/MTS family of test solutions. T-BERD/MTS product lines have built a solid worldwide reputation based on cutting-edge design and performance. Compatibility with thousands of field-proven units deployed worldwide by every major telecommunications network operator enables easy migration to new network technologies while continuing to reduce expenses.
Earlier this year, JDSU announced a separate agreement with Deutsche Telekom to support delivery of its IPTV service using the JDSU NetComplete service assurance system and associated IP test probes.
