MILPITAS, Calif. -- JDSU today announced J-Profiler, the latest addition to the J-Complete suite of test applications that simplify the installation and maintenance of carrier Ethernet networks. J-Profiler saves hours of troubleshooting time for expert and novice network technicians as a monitoring application or traffic explorer for live, in-service links. J-Profiler is currently available for the T-BERD®/MTS-6000A Multi Services Application Module (MSAM).

In one feature set, J-Profiler enhances the troubleshooting capability for technicians who must identify network problems in circuits with up to thousands of active sessions, including Ethernet Mobile Backhaul networks where thousands of streams may exist across hundreds of cell sites. J-Profiler helps isolate problems by providing automatic and non-intrusive discovery of Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN), Q-in-Q, Internet Protocol (IP) and Transmission Control Protocol/User Datagram Protocol (TCP/UDP) streams. The tester also displays the bandwidth utilization and VLAN user priority set for each stream, allowing the technician to view Top Talkers by customer, traffic type, or application. This results in quick and easy troubleshooting of misconfigured virtual network circuits that are impacting other services.

"JDSU introduced J-Complete to help network architects, engineers and technicians better manage the potentially hundreds of problems across multiple layers that cause customer dissatisfaction with Carrier Ethernet networks," said Jim Nerschook, vice president and general manager in JDSU's Communications Test and Measurement business segment. "By providing an expert tool that dramatically reduces test times and requires no network down time, J-Profiler is an excellent new addition to J-Complete and enables unmatched operational efficiency."
