VeEX® First to Offer Speedtest Powered™ Broadband Service Testing up to 10 Gbps

VeEX Inc., a global leader in Telecom, CATV, Fiber, Transport and Broadband Access, today announced the industry’s first, field portable test solutions capable of performing throughput testing up to 10 Gbps with Speedtest® by Ookla®. Available on the newest software for the TX300s platform, CX350s-D3.1, and CX380s-D3.1 products, the Speedtest Powered™ throughput testing allows broadband service providers to reliably test their services on 1GE, 10GE, and DOCSIS 3.1 interfaces.

Speedtest by Ookla is the industry’s de-facto standard technology to measure internet connection speed and network efficiency by both service providers and their customers. Speedtest integration into VeEX’s test solutions, leverages the powerful and dedicated hardware and software resources that a test tool can provide for reliable and repeatable results, at full line rate. This is key to service providers, since they need to provide undeniable proof to their customers that the broadband service being delivered meets the service level agreement.

The integration of Speedtest into VeEX products complements an already rich feature set of stateful TCP performance testing. V-PERF (RFC6349) as well as V-FTP provides additional test methodologies for verifying TCP layer and FTP performance at full line rate up to 10 Gbps. With broadband speeds increasing rapidly, and 1 Gbps, 2 Gbps, and 4 Gbps services already available, it has become crucial for service providers to rely on accurate and repeatable network testing. “High-speed broadband subscribers are sometimes frustrated and may file unnecessary complaints as they try using regular computers to check their internet speeds at or above 1 Gbps. Service providers face the challenge of proving their service is indeed being delivered as promised and that PCs are not enough to validate high-speed broadband services anymore,” said Ricardo Torres, Director of Product Marketing, Ethernet Solutions for VeEX. “As a test and measurement solutions provider and strategic partner, we work closely with service providers to develop best in class test solutions to maximize operational efficiency.”

With the rich variety of test methodologies offered by VeEX for Layer 4 and above testing, service providers have a choice to select the most efficient method for their day-to-day operations.

The TX300s and CX350/380sD3.1 product lines support an extensive series of technologies from Broadband access, Ethernet/IP, Fibre Channel, CPRI (C-RAN) Fronthaul, Backhaul, TDM (OTN, SDH, SONET, PDH, T-Carrier), Fiber Optics (OTDR), WDM (OSA), RF/CATV (SLM, DOCSIS) test solutions.
