The migration from traditional TDM access to Ethernet-based business and wireless backhaul networks makes the provisioning and maintenance of wholesale, business, and residential consumer services increasingly more complex. Spirent's Ethernet customers are under pressure to meet and exceed the stringent quality of service demands, particularly from their enterprise users while keeping operating expenses in check as Ethernet services, network architectures, and service and delivery configurations proliferate. In addition, consumers' expectations are forcing service providers to offer high performance data and video services that meet QoS and QoE levels expected from subscribers.

The ability to ensure network quality prior to service activation is a huge advantage, said John Cunningham, president, Service Assurance Broadband group at Spirent Communications. Spirent remains the only company delivering an Ethernet testing solution that allows carriers to rapidly launch new services as well as decisively troubleshoot potential issues once a network is live and operating.

Spirent is an established leader in Ethernet systems and services testing within the service provider and network equipment vendor lab environment. By leveraging the Ethernet testing expertise from the lab into the field, Spirent ensures that customers are able to better diagnose and troubleshoot the complex technology issues related to delivering Ethernet services over converged networks. This effort then allows service providers to focus on expanding their competitive footprint. This approach coupled with Spirent's commitment to introducing advanced Ethernet solutions makes it the testing partner of choice for the three carrier customers.

All three carriers implemented Spirent's market leading, SmartSight and QoE Scope solutions to streamline service deployments and achieve critical business objectives. Spirent's solution is uniquely positioned to address carrier class business service offerings with a proven test platform producing a competitive advantage. It allows service providers to outperform their competition utilizing fewer resources per Ethernet line in service. The improved service response capability reduces customer churn in this volatile marketplace, maintains up sell potential to higher speeds and more exotic services, and improves existing revenue retention while increasing new revenue potential.
