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.

As Internet protocol (IP) becomes the transport layer of choice, operators are faced with significant challenges to provide accurate and relevant measurement of IP network performance. Tools are available such as ICMP Ping/TraceRoute and UDP Echo, but these provide limited value in the context of performance as they typically lack precision, accuracy or relevancy for assuring carrier-grade performance. Other tools exist that leverage the TCP/IP suite but lack the broad acceptance of the network equipment manufacturer community that is required for seamless operation in cross-network/ multi-vendor environments.
