Shenick and Ciena Optimize Full Two-Way Active Measurement Protocol Testing

Ciena is using Shenick Network Systems' diversifEye platform to test full two-way active measurement protocol (TWAMP) compliance for its customers.

The TWAMP protocol defines a flexible method for measuring round-trip IP performance among any two devices in a network that supports the standard, such as measuring time delay on a call. Full/complete TWAMP testing enables carriers to go one step further and TWAMP test each node in the network for ultimate end user quality of service (QoS).

Shenick said its full TWAMP testing solution enables Ciena's engineers to perform a network "health check" by measuring the complete IP performance of underlying transport, right down to an individual flow basis, through cooperation between network elements that have already been deployed.
