JDSU has been contracted to provide service assurance test solutions to The Carphone Warehouse Networks in the United Kingdom.

The JDSU service assurance system, NetComplete, will support the design, implementation and management of Carphone Warehouse Networks’ (CPWN) next-generation network (NGN), covering both its residential and business customers via local loop unbundling.

CPWN selected JDSU’s NetComplete Broadband/IP test solution after an extensive evaluation process. CPWN also noted JDSU's broadband test and performance monitoring experience in the U.K.

CPWN selected the JDSU NetComplete QT-200 xDSL/triple-play probe and on-board applications together with NetAnalyst software for its sophistication, service history and suite of applications.

CPWN’s NGN effort includes a 40G core that will allow the business to scale up capacity and address customers' growing demands for broadband. Two-thirds of all of CPWN's broadband customers are now on its network, and the business expects to increase this number to 80 percent by March 2009.

JDSU said it was also awarded an expansion contract for an identical solution to support the AOL Broadband business as it further extends its U.K. service footprint.
