Shenick, Fanfare partner on NGN testing
Fanfare and Shenick Network Systems have partnered to integrate their respective test capabilities for next-generation networks, both wireline and wireless.
Shenick will add full plug-in support for Fanfare’s iTest test automation software through its DiversifEye product.
The combination will give network operators visibility into each network application and individual user-flow using Shenick’s per-flow architecture.
NGN and Long Term Evolution services and applications bring with them increased quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE) demands. Per-flow test and measurement is the only mechanism to guarantee performance at these granular levels, enabling providers to pinpoint application and individual user issues accurately, the pair said.
“Solving QoS and QoE issues right down to each individual user continues to be one of the greatest challenges for our customers as they look to perfect multi-play services,” said Robert Winters, CMO of Shenick. “Shenick and Fanfare now enable customers to build automated testing on a per-flow level into their processes, resulting in cost savings and increased productivity.”
