Deutsche Telekom acquires IPTV delivery solutions

JDSU has announced that its service assurance test solutions have been selected by Deutsche Telekom to support delivery of its IPTV service.

JDSU's NetComplete service assurance system and associated IP test probes will be deployed in Deutsche Telekom's network.

The NetComplete solution also includes software that enables monitoring of service quality from central network operations centers, increasing efficiency and reducing the need to deploy technicians to the field.

It ensures early recognition of changes in the quality of the streaming video signals, including any decrease in signal strength, prioritises issues based on alarm levels, identifies the cause of service quality problems and provides reporting tools.
