Agilent's N2X Tests IPTV

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced that its N2X multiservices test solution was used this week in the industry's first validation of IPTV service delivery over Virtual Private LAN Services (VPLS) and hybrid optical transport networks. The multivendor interoperability test was conducted at Isocore Internetworking Lab and showcased at the MPLS 2006 public demonstration in Washington, D.C.

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."
