CHICAGO -- Spirent Communications (NYSE:SPM - News; LSE:SPT - News) has added advanced VoIP performance testing capabilities to its market-leading Abacus 5000 IP Telephony Test System to reduce VoIP testing costs for service providers and network equipment manufacturers. Now Spirent customers can simulate an entire VoIP-PSTN network, eliminating the need for multiple test tools with external signaling.

Spirent's Abacus 5000 offers one of the most realistic and effective testing approaches on the market today. Realistic testing includes flexible call distribution patterns, real-time results and real voice traffic on all channels. The Abacus 5000 can emulate a call agent, signaling gateway, IP end-points, PSTN network elements and generate real voice and RTP packets. Its integrated testing capability is critical to adequately verify the migration from circuit to packet and to avoid performance, interoperability, and voice quality pitfalls associated with deploying new VoIP products or services.

"Spirent's Abacus 5000 allowed us to integrate our IP Telephony and PSTN tests in a single platform, giving us a shorter test cycle and lowering our total cost of testing," said Eyal Zach, manager, Software Quality Assurance, AudioCodes Ltd. "In addition, Abacus 5000 can verify aspects of performance and capabilities of our media gateway, including RTP and voice quality. The end result is a shorter time to market for our products."
