Brix Networks, ADVA Optical Networking hook up devices for Carrier Ethernet deployments
Brix Networks and ADVA Optical Networking today announced they have successfully completed interoperability between Brix Networks’ BrixNGN Carrier Ethernet service assurance technology and ADVA Optical Networking’s Etherjack demarcation technology that enables providers of mobile backhaul services to verify their quality of service (QoS).
The Brix and ADVA Optical Networking combination was designed to provide network operators with a highly scalable and efficient way to continuously collect, correlate, analyze, and visualize critical QoS and quality of experience (QoE) data from Carrier Ethernet environments. The information gathered can be used for capacity planning and service turn-up verification, continuous service monitoring, and on-demand troubleshooting to identify, diagnose, and resolve network and service issues before customers are impacted.
In a related matter, the companies also announced that Brix has joined ADVA Optical Networking’s Etherjack Alliance Program, which includes industry suppliers in a variety of technology areas that all work with ADVA Optical Networking to simplify and speed the deployment of intelligent Ethernet services that can be remotely provisioned, monitored, and tested.
Brix is in the process of being purchased by Exfo.
