JDSU moves testing capabilities to the cloud
Testing and measurement vendor JDSU today announced StrataSync, which provides network operators with a centralized approach to manage and analyze data from thousands of deployed JDSU test instruments directly from the cloud.
With consumers connecting to networks with an increasing number of devices, simplified network management is key, according to JDSU. StrataSync was designed to help network operators manage and optimize their networks in a more efficient and cost-effective way, empower their technicians with real-time data, and help to improve customer service.
“When our network customers are troubleshooting a network issue, it has to be done right the first time. Millions of people around the world rely on them and expect their network connections to work well,” said David Heard, president of communications test and measurement at JDSU. “Moving more network monitoring to the cloud with new solutions like StrataSync helps ensure that our customers get the best value out of their network assets while letting them focus more time on providing high-quality service.”
JDSU said its centralized and cloud-based approach reduced time and costs associated with manually tracking, updating and recording data from every test instrument.
It provides network technicians with easy access to critical data that lets them quickly pinpoint and resolve any issues to optimize network performance. It also helps keep technicians updated and supported while out in the field.
With StrataSync, test instruments are always dialed in to have the most recent configurations and software. It also provides centralized data warehousing and reporting.
StrataSync will be available in March and will initially support several JDSU test instruments, including the DSAM, DSAM-6300, HST-3000, T-BERD/MTS-2000, T-BERD/MTS-5800, T-BERD/MTS-6000/6000A and MTS-8000 products.
JDSU said future versions of StrataSync would support an even broader range of network test instruments and will have more customizable features.
