Agilent Technologies Inc. today introduced its Distributed Network Analyzer Pro, a network-troubleshooting platform that delivers critical information from a wide array of network interfaces and allows engineers to accurately measure and qualify service performance, identify root-cause of impairments, and troubleshoot complex problems.

The J6803A provides local and distributed test capabilities for installation, maintenance and troubleshooting of next-generation networks.

New triple-play measurements include support for HSDPA in mobile broadband networks, video protocol analysis, and an industry-first capability to directly correlate VoIP voice quality with network impairments, taking the guesswork out of analysis, Agilent said.

"Broadband telecommunications networks are being upgraded to support real-time services, such as VoIP and IPTV," the company said in a release issued at SuperComm in Chicago.

"Next-generation devices, such as B-RAS and IP-DSLAMs, must now accommodate traffic prioritization policies and multicast technologies as well as higher-speed Ethernet aggregation."
