SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Spirent Communications™ (NYSE: SPM; LSE: SPT) today announced availability of the Distributed Abacus IP Telephony Rollout Platform designed to assess and validate signaling performance and call quality in pre-production networks. Spirent Communications is a worldwide provider of performance analysis and service assurance systems for next-generation network technologies.

Carriers using Distributed Abacus can confidently introduce large-scale VoIP services by taking IP telephony testing beyond the lab. By emulating real-world traffic from multiple points on the network, network operators, may avoid the risk of testing VoIP quality and performance with live customers.

Spirent’s Distributed Abacus platform allows for thorough, rapid and centralized testing of service provider or enterprise pre-production networks, rather than consuming time and resources with site-by-site testing. Spirent’s Distributed Abacus platform treats multiple Abacus IP Telephony test systems as a single ‘virtual’ platform for testing IP and hybrid IP/Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) networks. It provides network engineers with the ability to test the effectiveness of the network infrastructure in carrying voice traffic.

“For many carriers and enterprises, high quality IP communications infrastructure is a core component of their competitive strategy,” said Danny Klein, Communications Network Infrastructure analyst, at The Yankee Group. “The ability to assure next-generation equipment’s performance after the network deployment and before live service availability will prove critical to customer acceptance and loyalty.”

SAN JOSE, Calif. —– Spirent Communications™ (NYSE: SPM; LSE: SPT), today announced that Sylantro Systems has selected Spirent’s Abacus 5000 IP Telephony Migration Test System to validate the performance, scalability and reliability of its telecom-grade application server platform.

The comprehensive, high capacity Abacus 5000 IP Telephony Migration Test System incorporates triple play, conformance and security/robustness test methodologies. Triple-play testing provides thorough validation of voice services in the presence of data and video services across the IP and public switched telephone network (PSTN) infrastructures. Conformance testing ensures that products adhere to specified standards whilst robustness testing ensures that reliability and dependability concerns are minimized.
