SAN JOSE, Calif. -- JDSU today announced that its service assurance solutions were selected by BT to help ensure efficiency and reliability during the first phase of its 21st Century Network (21CN) initiative to migrate from a public-switched telephone network (PSTN) to an all-IP next-generation network that will support advanced broadband technologies and services. JDSU will display its service assurance solutions portfolio at the 21st Century Communications World Forum in London (March 27-30), booth number 246.

BT selected JDSU's QT-200 family of test heads and software agents for the initial phase of the 21CN customer migration which is taking place in the Cardiff region of Wales. At selected sites, the QT-200 will conduct fault management and service provisioning, interfacing with the existing test and diagnostic functions in its operations support system (OSS), known as GTC WOOSH. This new contract builds on more than three years of support JDSU has provided to BT's broadband deployment initiatives via the QT-200 test head technology, with test heads at more than 3,000 sites across the U.K.

"The 21st Century Network is a truly innovative and exciting transformation to a next-generation network and JDSU is proud to continue supporting BT's broadband deployment with our service assurance solutions," said Helmut Berg, senior vice president of JDSU's Communications Test and Measurement Group. "The QT-200 has a proven track record with BT, helping to meet the demands of broadband growth with efficiency and reliability."

"JDSU has been an important partner in our ability to deploy broadband services at a rapid pace over the past three years," said Ray Clay, BT's Head of Test and Diagnostics Strategy for 21CN. "As we enter our initial phase of 21st Century Network customer migration, we look forward to maintaining the benefits of JDSU's service assurance solutions."
