Brix Networks took the wraps off its next-generation, IP Service assurance platform today.
The Brix 4100 Verifier platform scales up to 10-Gigabits and helps network operators monitor the quality of service of their live, IP-based voice and video services while also providing network information to operator employees. The Verifier provides real-time monitoring of live customer VoIP and IPTV traffic from its end-to-end service monitoring.
“Network capacities scaling beyond 30 million busy-hour calls, hundreds of high-definition channels, and multi-Gigabit IP transport backbones all require correlated information from multiple access points in order to truly evaluate a customer’s quality of experience,” said Charlie Baker, director of product management at Brix Networks, in a prepared statement. “The Brix 4100 family scales beyond full Gigabit capacity for voice and video streams, and helps network operators transition their services from closed TDM networks to open IP/MPLS-based infrastructures by providing immediate visibility across signaling and media – all from the same extensible platform.”
The Brix 4100 family is designed for use in large-scale, production networks. Deployed throughout a provider’s network, the platform works together with the company’s service assurance correlation and analysis software engine to monitor, assess, and report on the quality of voice and video traffic at edge or core locations of operational VoIP and IPTV networks.
