JDSU Enhances NetComplete(TM) Service Assurance Solution with Empirix’s Hammer XMS(TM) Signaling Monitoring
JDSU and Empirix today announced that JDSU’s award-winning service assurance platform, NetComplete, now includes Empirix’s Hammer XMS, in a complete solution for content traffic and signaling-layer monitoring. With this integrated solution, service providers can deliver the highest quality service over broadband/IP wireline and wireless networks.
Service providers are migrating to Ethernet as a primary transport protocol and their ability to ensure service quality has become an increasingly critical business imperative. With the addition of Hammer XMS, NetComplete provides a comprehensive service monitoring solution that addresses both signaling and media content, correlates across multiple protocols, quickly identifies network problems, and helps deliver a best-quality customer experience.
“JDSU is pleased to incorporate Empirix’s Hammer XMS and its carrier-class signaling analysis capability into our media content analysis NetComplete service assurance offering,” said Jerry Gentile, vice president in JDSU’s Communications Test and Measurement business segment. “Service providers now have a cost-effective, quality of experience solution with high performance and high scalability – an ideal combination to monitor advanced service deployments.”
JDSU’s NetComplete service assurance platform includes NetAnalyst and NetOptimize OSS software and the QT-600 Ethernet triple-play probe. The QT-600 monitors service quality at operational demarcation points throughout a network, gathering media layer details such as call quality, video quality and the amount of data being transferred. With Empirix’s Hammer XMS, NetComplete delivers both active and passive signaling monitoring that retrieves information about the success or failure of voice or data transmissions. JDSU NetComplete now provides invaluable network monitoring data, performance metrics and network health information.
“Through our partnership with industry leading JDSU, we are delivering a best-in-class offering to service providers worldwide,” said JD Doyle, vice president and general manager, Service Assurance Solutions, Empirix. “Now, by analyzing a broad range of real-time service quality statistics and metrics per call, NetComplete helps multiple groups across a service provider organization.”
