Aware, Inc. Announces Support for New ITU Testing Standard with Line Diagnostics Platform
BEDFORD, Mass., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Aware, Inc., a leading provider of DSL test and diagnostics solutions, today announced that its Dr. DSL® Line Diagnostics Platform (LDP) supports the new International Telecommunications Union (ITU) G.996.2 line testing standard for DSL subscriber lines. The recently ratified standard defines specifications for embedded single-ended (SELT), dual-ended (DELT), and metallic (MELT) line testing parameters and reference models. Aware's LDP can be used by telcos to collect and interpret chipset-level G.lt parameters to provide advanced DSL service assurance.
"As telcos look to reduce operational expenses and increase revenue from advanced services such as IPTV, they need a simple and cost-effective DSL test and diagnostics solution to ensure subscriber lines meet stringent throughput, performance, and stability requirements," commented Peter LeBlanc, Aware's vice president. "Our LDP solution is compatible with industry-leading DSLAMs, which allows telcos to use their installed access equipment to improve technician trouble resolution, increase revenue through accurate service qualification, and optimize line performance for delivery of IPTV."
Aware's Line Diagnostics Platform is an advanced software-based test solution that uses open interfaces to collect SELT, DELT and MELT parameters from DSLAMs, customer premises equipment, test heads, and outside plant handheld devices. These parameters are normalized in a centralized server and interpreted using Aware's award-winning Dr. DSL interpretation algorithms. Aware's diagnostics technology is based on a decade of experience in developing DSL silicon intellectual property and has been used to qualify millions of lines around the world.
Aware's Line Diagnostics Platform will be showcased in its booth (#1038) at the TelcoTV2009 Conference, November 10 - 12, 2009.
Aware's LDP and evaluation software are available immediately from Aware, Inc. More information about Aware's Line Diagnostics Platform can be found at http://www.aware.com/ldp.
