ASSIA's New xELT Module for DSL Expresse Offers Powerful New Test Capabilities for xDSL Service Providers

Unique Combination of SELT, DELT, and MELT Analysis Yields Faster and More Accurate Fault Identification and Location

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 20, 2015) - ASSIA, Inc., a leading SaaS solutions company for global enterprise and consumer markets that is helping to make the Internet reliably fast, today announced the availability of an advanced xDSL line testing solution for its DSL Expresse management and optimization software tool. ASSIA's xELT module is currently the only industry line testing solution to combine three test and diagnostic capabilities -- SELT, DELT, and MELT -- that dramatically improve fault identification and location.

Designed by ASSIA's team of leading broadband experts, the powerful testing capabilities of the DSL Expresse xELT module can identify and localize xDSL issues faster and more accurately than traditional SELT, DELT, and MELT tests alone. As a result, operators can accelerate service repair times and reduce the OpEx costs of technical support.

"As broadband access networks are now a critical utility for residential subscribers, operators are increasingly pressured to provide rapid response to address service issues while also controlling costs," said Barry Gray, senior vice president of service provider marketing at ASSIA. "ASSIA's xELT software module provides an expert system approach to SELT, MELT, DELT test analysis that directly addresses that need."

For service providers worldwide, this translates to minimizing operator field service costs and time to repair by pinpointing the fault location so that the right field team is deployed to the correct location. Furthermore, rapid fault diagnosis and accelerated time to repair can help improve subscriber satisfaction and in turn lead to reduced churn.

As access networks are increasingly becoming a utility for residential subscribers, service providers are investing in software tools like xELT to improve fault repair time and reduce costs. As part of ASSIA's DSL Expresse management and optimization tool chain, xELT is an equipment-vendor-independent software-based technique that uses standardized interfaces to communicate with modern DSLAMs that support DELT, SELT or MELT.
