Today’s Ethernet networks carry a variety of data, voice, and video services alongside network management traffic.
Ensuring quality of service (QoS), while maximizing throughput is critical to ensure proper performance and a high quality customer experience, however, traditional testing methods fall short in their ability to monitor, analyze and identify problems. For turning up VLAN, MPLS, and IP-based services, and to keep service quality and revenues up, a multi-stream, multi-port, multi-service testing model is required. As triple play services become pervasive among end users and the demand for commercial Ethernet traffic continues to grow, network providers are under increasing pressure to update aging architecture. Competition between traditional telephony and cable providers in the Ethernet space means networks must be turned up and generate revenue as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.
Proper network pre-qualification and monitoring is required to ensure that service quality is maintained from the headend, through the network backbone, and to customer premises as more customers are added and more services are offered.
