Versatile In-Network Performance Management and Turn-Up

The BV-3100 Verifier is a single integrated instrument that supports all three phases of the IP and Ethernet service lifecycle: service turn-up, monitoring and troubleshooting. It enables operators to not only turn up new services quickly and efficiently, but to also monitor the quality of those services and thus assure a high quality of experience (QoE) for the end user. Carriers can use the BV-3100 to turn up multiple new circuits simultaneously, in addition to measuring the real-time performance of data transport, mobile backhaul, metro Ethernet, VoIP, wireless and video services.

The extremely competitive value and performance of the BV-3100 makes it ideally suited for deployment in a wide variety of service provider and enterprise locations, including metro hubs, regional headends, PoPs, mobile switching centers and data centers.

The One Solution for Enhanced Ethernet Services

The BV-3100 is a key part of EXFO’s Ethernet One solution for optimizing Ethernet service delivery. In conjunction with BrixNGN Next-Generation Service Assurance Software, the BV-3100 can simultaneously perform monitoring functions across the core and access, while also initiating remote or automated service turn-up tests. The result is a single platform that fulfills the requirements of two or more hardware devices in competing solutions. By initiating turn-up tests from a central location to service endpoints, operators can avoid costly and time-consuming truck rolls. The BV-3100 allows service providers to deploy one device in a central location to perform turn-up testing and then seamlessly evolve to real-time performance monitoring or vice versa—all with minimal capital expenditures.
