JDSU NetComplete Enhancement for IPTV, Quad-Play Service Delivery

Establishing a leading, comprehensive end-to-end service assurance solution for IP-based quad-play service delivery, NetComplete's new features include: support for single and multi-channel program transport streams; simultaneous monitoring of more than 1000 digital video/IPTV transport streams, measuring and calculating key quality indicators; and continuous passive performance monitoring, including the correlation and aggregation of quality metrics providing an end-to-end view across the service delivery chain.

JDSU's NetComplete service assurance system has been acclaimed in industry forums and recognized among service providers around the world, including being named International Engineering Consortium's (IEC's) 2006 InfoVision Award recipient for Access Network Technology and Services, for its role ensuring quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE) for voice, video and data services deployed in Metro Ethernet, wireless and IP-broadband environments. NetComplete consists of powerful QT-hardware and software probes (QT-600, QT-200, QT-50) that operate with industry proven OSS software, NetAnalyst and NetOptimize, with cutting-edge applications for managing service performance and proactively troubleshooting problems.

"JDSU is a trusted service assurance source for large-scale deployments of IPTV, VoIP and other advanced services," said John Govert, director of marketing for JDSU's Service Assurance Solutions business unit. "These new features allow service providers to comprehensively test and monitor quad-play services using a single platform � whether its metro Ethernet, IPTV, voice or wireless services � giving exceptional visibility into the complex network and service lifecycle."

JDSU PVA-1000's "Auto Capture" Remote Monitoring Vital Technique to Eliminate Poor Calls

JDSU's PVA-1000, a popular and effective software tool providing full analysis of VoIP telephone calls � including jitter, packet loss and audio playback � has been upgraded to include two critical test features that strengthen its ability to perform VoIP test for carriers delivering service in IMS, fixed-mobile convergence environments. The features are compatible with a variety of network service and infrastructure types, including softphones, wireless IMS networks, wireline networks, VPN and Enterprise.
A new Capture Agent now allows the PVA-1000 to monitor multiple calls and generate individual packet capture files for each call that falls below a mean opinion score (MOS) threshold, a common metric to determine optimal call quality. The resulting capture file can be automatically transferred to a pre-defined server. These capture agents can be placed on switch port analyzer (SPAN) ports, PCs with softphones (PC-based software that converts PC into a telephone) or desktop PCs connected to IP phones. This low-cost flexible deployment combined with fully automated operation makes them ideal for network turn-up, acceptance and troubleshooting applications.
In addition, the PVA-1000 can perform signaling trace, audio playback and full decodes of signaling and media packets, improving the ability for operators to quickly and proactively troubleshoot common errors in VoIP performance such as delay and echo.
