Spirent Introduces Distributed Abacus IP Telephony Rollout Platform

Spirent Communications announced availability of the Distributed Abacus IP Telephony Rollout Platform designed to assess and validate signaling performance and call quality in pre-production networks.

The Distributed Abacus platform allows for centralized testing of service provider or enterprise pre-production networks, rather than consuming time and resources with site-by-site testing. Spirent's Distributed Abacus platform treats multiple Abacus IP Telephony test systems as a single "virtual" platform for testing IP and hybrid IP/PSTN networks. It provides network statistics such as jitter, delay and packet Loss; call measurements statistics such as call setup time, percent of call completions, and call termination reason; and voice quality metrics such as MOS, PESQ and R value.

Spirent said its Distributed Abacus can be used to test end-to-end or at any combination of IP and PSTN points on the network facilitating true converged network testing between various locations around a city, a country or around the Globe.

In addition, Spirent offers an IP Telephony Network Assessment Service incorporating on-site Spirent Global Services experts, an initial assessment of the customer's requirements, customized network analysis, corrective recommendations and, if necessary, a follow-on service with in-depth testing of specific problems.
