Today, JDSU bowed a new all-in-one handheld tester for the instillation, maintenance and troubleshooting of triple-play services.

The SmartClass Triple Play Services (TPS) device tests IP video, VoIP, IP data and ADSL 1/2/2+ services.

Key features of the SmartClass TPS include triple-play services testing with quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE) functionality, advanced IP video analysis, including the ability to test multiple high-definition television (HDTV) streams, VoIP phone emulation, and a built-in USB Host 2.0 interface for easy file transfer.

JDSU said the SmartClass TPS offers advanced test applications, including IPTV quality testing for broadcast and video-on-demand (VOD) streams (including VMOS and MDI-MLR); the ability to assess VoIP packet stream quality using MOS and R-Factor, as well as network delay analysis; IP Data Throughput Rate verification using FTP or HTTP tests; and the ability to test these services over an ADSL2+ or Ethernet 10/100 interface.
