Telenor Deploys Ixia's IP Service Verification Platform

Telenor has deployed Ixia's IxRave IP service verification platform to measure the end-to-end performance of its enterprise layer 3 VPN (L3 VPN) networks and services in Scandinavia. IxRave permits Telenor to remotely perform end-to-end application testing to verify its customers' quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE). Inexpensive probes and virtual endpoints enable Telenor to quickly identify any issues and determine if a fault is in the network (edge and core) or in the access segment (edge to customer premises), and then verify that corrective action has resolved an issue. Ixia said its solution also enables Telenor to quickly and remotely measure complex service level agreement (SLA) metrics and verify SLA commitments on demand -- even before those services are turned up. Financial terms were not disclosed.
