JDSU Unveils Enhanced Signaling Analyzer for LTE With Advanced 3G Capabilities

Features 10x Increase in Real-Time Data Processing; Supports All-IP 10Gb Ethernet

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - October 18, 2010) -  In conjunction with 4G World, JDSU today introduced new high-performance LTE network diagnostic and analysis capabilities for its Signaling Analyzer Real Time (SART) LTE test solution. SART now increases data processing ten-fold with end-to-end visibility and is designed to address the huge growth in traffic on all-IP LTE networks. The SART LTE enhancements -- which include intelligent packet processing architecture, 6 Gbps capture, processing, and analysis on 10 Gigabit Ethernet data links -- preserve valuable real-time-to-results and drastically reduce the cost of monitoring multiple networks.

"JDSU continues its track record of innovation with a whole new intelligent architecture for our SART solution that will help customers fully leverage all-IP technology," said Chris Stanley, vice president in JDSU's Communications Test and Measurement business segment. "These new SART features provide real-time network analysis so carriers can cost-effectively scale traffic loads."

The transformation of mobile networks to an all-IP infrastructure is coinciding with increasing data rates and a surge in traffic volume occurring on today's advanced 3G technologies. LTE, the next generation wireless access technology, is an all-IP network requiring fast, accurate and reliable performance monitoring to ensure quality. The JDSU SART test solution meets these demands across the lifecycle of LTE trial execution, deployment, operation and network optimization.

The new JDSU SART LTE features and capabilities include:

  • Unique hardware processing that separates control and signaling plane traffic from user payload traffic, reduces storage requirements, and speeds analysis of the relevant data;
  • Centralized data and payload management that cuts costs and accelerates analysis by providing multiple users simultaneous access to the same probes with less expensive PC/server systems;
  • Real-time traffic flow statistics that correlate network performance and utilization with the control plane, enabling multi-Gbps per-user and per-service analysis; and
  • Access to multiple air-interface data sources, including JDSU's own Drive Test for LTE, as well as proven third-party air-probe devices.

JDSU will be exhibiting SART and other LTE/4G communications test and measurement solutions at 4G World, Chicago, October 18-21, booth # 108, and taking part in a panel discussion on Wednesday, October 20, 5:15 p.m., "Preparing for the Transformation -- Network Readiness for 4G Migrations."

JDSU's SART solution has earned wide recognition across the industry, including high acclaim at the MultiService Forum's international LTE interoperability trials in March, and winning Best Test Product for LTE at Informa's 2010 LTE World Summit.
