Agilent's N2X Tests IPTV
The Agilent N2X was used to validate IPTV and triple-play service delivery and for functional testing of network operations at all layers -- from GMPLS, MPLS to IP and triple-play service delivery. It is the industry's only multiport solution able to emulate the optical control plane to establish the GMPLS network -- as well as verify MPLS-enabled services such as multicast VPN, VPLS and IPTV -- all in one platform.
"Agilent N2X was key to verifying the sustained performance of average joint latency of subscribers in an IPTV set up over a scaled multiservice network," said Rajiv Papneja, manager of technology and product evaluation at Isocore. "Agilent's multiservice N2X solution provided necessary tools across multiple layers to measure MDII and channel-zapping performance of test network capable of delivering triple-play services."
