Tollgrade Communications, Inc., a supplier of network service assurance products, and Montreal-based VoIP test vendor Minacom, today announced an alliance that will see the two firms deliver integrated testing products for VoIP over cable networks.

The products will be deployed on Tollgrade’s recently released End-of-Line (EOL) probes and its DOCSIS-based Status Monitoring Cheetah Transponders.

Test calls use Minacom’s VoIP testing technology to measure over 40 service quality measurements including speech quality (MOS), speech power, loss, distortion, clipping and noise, call connectivity metrics such as Post Dial Delay (PDD), as well as dual-tone multi-frequency (DTMF/Touch Tone)transparency.

Minacom’s PowerProbes can be co-located with Cable Modem Termination Systems (CMTS), or installed in the IP or PSTN segments of a PacketCable network.

The alliance between Tollgrade and Minacom will also focus on further developing and co-marketing integrated triple-play and service level test solutions for cable companies and telcos.
