ntl:Telewest Employs Brix for MPLS Core Monitoring

ntl:Telewest, the UK's largest cable operator, has selected the Brix System to monitor the quality of its MPLS core network.

ntl:Telewest's Broadnet MPLS core network serves as the foundation for the company's next-generation, IP-based services, including the recently rolled out Metnet managed Ethernet service.

Brix Networks' seamlessly integrated hardware and software products -- collectively called the Brix System -- are strategic service assurance solutions that proactively monitor IP service and application quality. Financial terms were not disclosed.

  • In February 2006, Brix Networks unveiled its new "BrixVision" IPTV service assurance portfolio for giving service providers visibility into the quality of video content, the underlying delivery infrastructure, and the overall customer experience. Brix said its solution enables service providers to perform root-cause analysis to identify IP transmission versus video quality impairments, monitor end-to-end video quality, and proactively monitor and manage their subscribers' experience throughout the lifecycle of their services.
