SOPHIA ANTIPOLIS, France -- One of the largest and most successful triple-play testing events for both Gigabit Passive Optical Networks (GPON) and Digital Subscriber Line (including VDSL2 and ADSL2/2+), attracted over 150 engineers to the French city of Lannion from the 7th to 11th May 2007.

ETSI and all of the partner organizations wish to thank the Lannion Tregor Agglomeration and the city of Lannion for their strong support and welcome – which has been a significant factor in the smooth running of the Plugtests™.

The event, hosted by France Telecom – Orange Labs and organized by the ETSI Plugtests service was attended by Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) manufacturers, Chip manufacturers, Network device manufacturers (DSLAM, etc), as well as test tool manufacturers. Major technical support was provided by CETECOM ICT Services and France Telecom – who provided the test plans, test guides and the infrastructure needed.

GWENAEL LE LAY, Senior expert in network integration and testing tools for multiplay offers, France Telecom - Orange Labs, said:

"We have put our focus on providing support to CPEs and DSLAMs vendors in the area of QoS measurements for voice over IP and IPTV, with several triple-play oriented testing tools giving a lot of feedback on the tests performed. Now we intend to extend the scope of triple-play interoperability test suite to optical access technologies.

From the vendors' perspective, we believe that the ETSI Plugtests event is definitively the place to be to assess all broadband access solutions for the demand for a higher bandwidth."
