Agilent Technologies Inc. today introduced triple-play test and assurance products at GlobalComm 2006, which support the evolution of converged IP-based infrastructures that can transmit data, voice and video over a single wireline or wireless network in real time.

As the triple-play services industry continues to grow, network equipment manufacturers, service providers, cable installers and network operators seek products that simplify the complexity of test and management.

According to Agilent, the new tools help to validate consumer products under real-world conditions and deliver the quality of experience (QoE) that is expected in today’s digital market.

Its N2X multiservices tester validates data, voice and video services over MPLS/IP core, carrier edge and broadband access infrastructures.

Network equipment manufacturers and service providers can identify — before they deploy their networks — whether access network equipment can deliver IPTV QoE expectations for each subscriber under highly scaled and dynamic environments.

The Agilent N2X replaces the need to test with a lab full of set-top-boxes and video sources, providing engineers with significant lab-space, financial and time savings, the company said.

Meanwhile, its FrameScope Pro handheld Gigabit Ethernet troubleshooting and benchmarking tool allows network operators to conduct deployment testing of all triple-play elements — data, voice and video services.
