Westell and Spirent Partner on IP/Ethernet Diagnostics

Westell Technologies and Spirent Communications announced a partnership aimed at providing an end-to-end automated solution that would enable service providers to perform IP/Ethernet diagnostics to determine the quality of service that is delivered to the end customer network.
The companies will market a joint solution consisting of the Spirent SmartSight family of products and the Westell Inteleport Ethernet Network Interface Unit (NIU). Together, these products form an end-to-end automated diagnostic solution with interfaces to performance and fault management, trouble ticketing and inventory systems.

Westell's new Inteleport Ethernet NIU is a remotely manageable, intelligent NIU device that provides a standard 10/100baseT interface for Ethernet service. The in-line device supports remote provisioning and maintenance. Spirent's SmartSight portfolio is an integrated solution that combines hardware and software diagnostic tools to improve visibility into IP and Ethernet services from the customer premise level to the network and operational levels. The portfolio consists of the SmartSight VoIP Diagnostic Assistant, SmartSight Operational Support System, SmartSight Quality of Service Scope, and the SmartSight Broadband Remote Test Unit.
