BT Deploys Ellacoya for Network Visibility and Service Optimization

BT has deployed Ellacoya Networks' broadband optimization platform to support the BT Retail broadband network of more than 3 million subscribers. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The Ellacoya solution's network visibility function is being used for capacity planning and traffic analysis; providing visibility into aggregate traffic and specific application usage on both a real-time and historic basis. This enables BT to effectively engineer network capacity to meet all subscriber bandwidth needs as well as to anticipate and plan for future service requirements.

The service optimization functions of the Ellacoya solution are used to identify and provide Quality-of-Service (QoS) for BT's IPTV service, BTVision, and to analyze VoIP service quality to ensure expected performance. It also allows BT's business customers to self-activate services remotely.
