Anue Systems Announces Availability of Test Suites for Circuit Emulation Service and Timing Over Packet

MEF-18 and ITU-T G.8261 Test Suites Enable Vendors to Easily Test Their CES and ToP Solutions (ITU-T Y.1413, IETF CESoPSN, IETF SAToP, IEEE 1588 and NTP)

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - August 4, 2008) - Anue Systems, the leading provider of Network Emulators, today announced the availability of their new Test Suite for Circuit Emulation Service (CES) and Timing over Packet. The test suite is based on the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) developed test cases for certifying CES products.

The Anue Test Suite provides networking equipment manufacturers and service providers the ability to test their solutions against the industry based MEF-18 test plans prior to certification testing. The test suite is integrated with Anue's GEM Network Emulator product so tests can be set up quickly and economically. The test cases are based on ITU-T G.8261.

"The Anue GEM Network Emulator enables Iometrix to certify CES products under realistic Carrier Ethernet network delay and impairment conditions in a consistent and repeatable way," said Bob Mandeville, president of Iometrix, the testing laboratory responsible for the MEF test plan and certification process.

"The traditional approaches to test CES products, using live networks or mock-ups, are costly, non-repeatable, and only allow limited scenarios to be tested," said Hemi Thaker, President of Anue Systems. "Anue's solution allows vendors to economically test with realistic, repeatable, and customizable network conditions in a lab."
