Spirent Communications Unveils Virtualized Distributed Ethernet Probe

Spirent Communications unveiled a virtualized distributed Ethernet probe, Spirent TestCenter Live Virtual Probe. In conjunction with the Spirent TestCenter Live platform, it allows operators to extend performance management to all points of their network and respond to the rapidly changing demands of the new virtual environments, as well as today's fast-paced network operations conditions. The Spirent TestCenter Live Virtual Probe gives service providers complete visibility into next-generation networks, allowing users to quickly isolate faults. The Spirent solution delivers active and passive monitoring capabilities for proactive network management to better manage and validate the performance of premium services. Spirent TestCenter Live Virtual Probe supplements the Spirent TestCenter Live suite, delivering an end-to-end solution with hardware-based and virtual probes for proactive network monitoring and quality of service management.

Spirent Communications Announces Launch of A New VoLTE/RCS Services Test Solution

Spirent Communications announced the launch of a new VoLTE/RCS services test solution. Built on the Spirent Elevate Test Framework, the solution delivers unparalleled device-to-device VoLTE and RCS testing capabilities in the lab by integrating Spirent's new Wireless Test Station, ProLab IMS Suite and User Experience Analytics. While VoLTE/RCS testing is not a new requirement for the wireless industry, new problems are being discovered in the field as these services are being rolled out. Since the invention of the cellphone, every technology generation has relied on device-to-network signaling compliance to industry standards. However, device-to-device services such as VoLTE require devices to communicate with each other to establish basic call functionality - between every device manufacturer, every model and software release, and across every carrier's network. The VoLTE/RCS test solution emulates a wide range of real-world network conditions for real-time testing of voice and video over LTE devices. By providing a more advanced level of VoLTE/RCS performance evaluation, the solution enables exposure of even the most complex interoperability issues in the lab, preventing them from contributing to a poor user experience on the live network. Spirent's comprehensive VoLTE and RCS test solution is enabled by several key components of the new Spirent Elevate Test Framework, Wireless Test Station, a new product within the Framework, is the world's first test platform to support multiple devices simultaneously, enabling the interoperability challenges for VoLTE and RCS to be effectively and comprehensively addressed, ProLab IMS Suite (formerly Radvision ProLab), recognized worldwide as the best-in-class solution for IMS/RCS/VoLTE testing and validation, emulates carrier-realistic end-to-end environments right in the lab. ProLab enables IMS network systems to be emulated and tested prior to deployment and end-user service problems to be evaluated. User Experience Analytics provide extensive user experience evaluation via Spirent's proven Nomad (voice quality), Quantum (battery consumption), Datum (data throughput) and Chromatic (video performance) solutions.

Spirent Communications Announces the Launch of Spirent Elevate Test Framework

Spirent Communications announced the launch of Spirent Elevate Test Framework. Spirent Elevate is a powerful network of resources designed to address the increasingly complex testing challenges and scale demands of the wireless industry. Providing a unique open test architecture, Elevate disrupts the status quo in test and measurement and delivers a higher level of testing that enables faster time-to-market and improved user experience. With the rollout of complex wireless services and the surge in the number of smartphone and M2M devices, legacy test solutions are not able to support the increased complexity and time to market requirements. Services such as VoLTE (Voice-over-LTE) and RCS (Rich Communication Services) are exposing entirely new interoperability issues with commercial devices on live networks. The ability to evaluate device, service and user experience performance earlier on in the lab and generate meaningful analytics that can be shared across global development teams has become a necessity. Spirent Elevate breaks the "box" testing model by separating hardware from software, making use of virtualization and organizing test elements and resources into an open architecture. The framework encompasses instrumentation, emulated and live services, an open API, automated and interactive testing, analytics that cross all phases of wireless device development, and shareable test results for comprehensive collaboration.
