Telcordia Adds Broadband Test and Analysis System

Telcordia released a test and analysis system designed to reduce the cost of supporting advanced broadband services.

Telcordia Test Expert, part of the Telcordia Service Assurance Suite, automates the process of service testing and accurately identifies the precise problem so that it can be resolved expeditiously. The system incorporates an expert system that analyzes failure types, frequency, and cost, and mines historical performance and alarm data to pinpoint the root causes of intermittent faults, even after the original fault conditions have cleared. Using service and circuit information from the inventory system and advanced analysis scenarios, Test Expert enables CSPs to find and address the most costly faults quickly and efficiently.

Telcordia said key benefits include lower OPEX by automating and increasing the accuracy of field service testing, shortened service outages, and accelerated time to market for new offerings with effective field service testing.
