JDSU Introduces Small Cell Assurance Solution for Mobile Operators
MILPITAS, CA, Feb 26, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
JDSU (NASDAQ: JDSU) (TSX: JDU) today introduced its Small Cell
Assurance Solution (SCAS), the first comprehensive portfolio
specifically designed to perform critical testing, monitoring and
optimization for small cell networks. As mobile data usage skyrockets
and the wireless spectrum remains limited, mobile operators such as
service providers and network equipment manufacturers are
implementing small cells to scale networks and improve bandwidth and
speed for mobile users.
JDSU's SCAS is designed to help overcome the unique and complex
testing and visibility challenges that small cell environments
create. The new SCAS portfolio includes:
-- NetComplete EtherASSURE(TM) -- Scalable software platform that
provides centralized and automated testing to ensure that small-cell
backhaul services meet the most stringent performance requirements of
the industry. The platform makes sure that backhaul networks are
performing up to service level agreements, automates workflow
processes and improves operational efficiency.
-- PacketPortal(TM) -- A Smart Network Application Platform that
addresses the specific challenges and requirements of small cells.
Through its probeless approach, PacketPortal matches the miniaturized
and cost sensitive nature of small cells while eliminating
hub-and-spoke blind spots in backhaul networks. It provides points of
testability and visibility right to the edge of the network with its
unique microprobe portfolio that includes:
-- Micro Ethernet Probe (JMEP) -- Newest addition to the PacketPortal
microprobe family that can be seamlessly inserted into edge
devices such as LTE eNodeB small cells and provides industry
standard-based Ethernet service OAM capabilities.
-- Intelligent Visibility (IV) Probe -- Supplies granular performance
insight into network and application performance from various
points throughout the network.
"Small cells have become the go-to solution for mobile operators to
expand network coverage and deliver faster, more reliable service to
their customers," said David Heard, president of the Communications
Test and Measurement business segment at JDSU. "With SCAS, only JDSU
offers an end-to-end solution that helps mobile operators manage the
complexities of small cells and deliver the best user experience at
the lowest possible cost."
