Fluke Networks announced today the addition of VoIP phone functionalities to the MetroScope carrier Ethernet analyzer.

 

With the added internal VoIP calling capability, the analyzer now allows service providers the ability to get real-time results from  calls made over a carrier Ethernet line, making VoIP troubleshooting faster and more efficient.

 

The internal VoIP phone provides more thorough testing and troubleshooting by allowing service providers to make actual calls over the carrier Ethernet line to other VoIP phones, the call managers or other MetroScope analyzers, the company said.

 

By measuring the quality of the call, on MOS or R-Factor scales (or both), technicians get increased visibility into the carrier Ethernet line’s performance with the ability to see quantifiable diagnostics on the portable MetroScope analyzer.

 

“VoIP technologies are becoming an integral part of today’s work environment,” said Mark Mullins, carrier Ethernet marketing manager at Fluke Networks. “We understand how critical a crisp and clear call is to users.”
