BEDFORD, Mass. -- Empirix, the industry's leading supplier of VoIP testing systems, today introduced its enhanced Hammer NXT(TM) VoIP and TDM performance testing system. The newest Hammer NXT provides unmatched load scalability and dramatically reduces the costs associated with high-density load testing and performance verification of VoIP and PSTN network elements and networks. Using multiple Hammer NXT systems, network equipment manufacturers and service provider labs can create load testing environments that scale to more than 50,000 endpoints (signaling and media). The NXT now incorporates Empirix' patent-pending IP.DSP(TM) technology, which provides high density testing capacity and media analysis while reducing test system per port costs by up to a factor of 10X.

"Load testing is critical for network equipment manufacturers and service providers seeking to bring services to market faster and is especially important today as the VoIP market moves from the emerging stage to the deployment stage. With these enhancements to the Hammer NXT, Empirix has boosted the system's cost-effectiveness, performance and flexibility, significantly increasing its value proposition to customers," said Jessy Cavazos, Industry Analyst and Sector Leader of the Communications Test & Measurement Group at Frost & Sullivan. "Empirix is a leader in the world VoIP test equipment market. This announcement is key to the company's R&D test equipment portfolio and demonstrates its commitment to the lab, even as the company leverages its market strength into VoIP monitoring."

The Hammer NXT offers up to 24K simultaneous signaling/media endpoints per system for high-density performance testing. Carrier-class test scenarios can be cost-effectively scaled with simultaneous testing and monitoring of every channel, as well as real-time path confirmation and media detection at wire speeds, to verify maximum call rates, routing, and content under a variety of real-world network scenarios.
