JDSU Adds Innovative One-Way Delay Test Feature to T-BERD(R)/MTS-6000A08:30 EDT Wednesday, May 26, 2010MILPITAS, Calif., May 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- JDSU today introduced the first field-portable solution for "one-way delay" testing. �An enhancement to the T-BERD/MTS-6000A Multi-Services Application Module (MSAM), the solution provides measurement accuracy 10 times greater than most service level agreements (SLAs) currently require for Ethernet Backhaul and mission-critical applications.�This new feature helps to measure and troubleshoot service delay in networks that carry real-time voice, video and data services in Ethernet backhaul applications, as well as services in government and financial networks. The JDSU One-Way Delay test feature enables providers to measure the delay of Ethernet, Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) and IPv6 traffic. This is critical for industries with real-time applications such as Voice over IP (VOIP), in which delay causes unacceptable quality issues, and financial transactions that depend on nearly instantaneous transmissions. � �"One-way delay is a common factor in the degradation of voice, video and data service quality and reliability," said Mirna Mekic, director in JDSU's Communications Test and Measurement business segment. "The JDSU One-Way Delay test feature for the T-BERD/MTS-6000A MSAM gives those responsible for network operations a simple and accurate method to perform a critical one-way SLA delay measurement that can characterize network performance. This unique feature provides valuable information useful in network turn-up and troubleshooting so that carriers can assure SLAs and optimize their networks to enhance quality of service." JDSU's T-BERD/MTS-6000A MSAM is the industry's most compact multi-function tester. It supports the installation and maintenance of Carrier Ethernet and Internet Protocol (IP) services while also having the ability to simultaneously test Fiber Channel, Optical Transport Network (OTN), NextGen, Synchronous Optical Network (SONET/SDH) and legacy Time Division Multiplex (TDM) protocols all in one rugged, handheld unit.� To learn more about the T-BERD/MTS-6000A MSAM and the industries it serves, please visit http://www.jdsu.com/.� About JDSUJDSU (Nasdaq: JDSU; and TSX: JDU) enables broadband and optical innovation in the communications, commercial and consumer markets.
