EXFO and RAD Data Communications expand network monitoring collaboration
Mar 04, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
EXFO Inc. and RAD Data Communications have enhanced the interoperability of their combined, network monitoring solution.
In addition to RAD's ETX EtherAccess Ethernet Demarcation device, EXFO's Brix Service Assurance solution for network provisioning, troubleshooting and maintenance now supports RAD's new MiNID Miniature Carrier Ethernet Demarcation SFP.
The unique benefit of this synergy is that it injects service assurance into existing networks without requiring the replacement of any existing equipment.
This joint solution provides operators with a complete network monitoring approach. It combines the highly scalable monitoring and analysis power of EXFO's BrixWorx correlation and analysis engine and Brix Verifier network appliances with RAD's ETX EtherAccess demarcation devices located at the customer premises.
EXFO's BrixWorx solution supports interworking with RAD network demarcation devices and applications, offering a deeper level of integration between the devices and enabling visibility of the service and circuit performance at the customer handoff or within the core.
"The Brix solution allows operators to monitor their networks from end to end and correlates all the relevant metrics in one integrated system," said Claudio Mazzuca, vice-president of EXFO's service assurance division.
"In 2012, we developed the initial integration with RAD NIDs into the Brix System. That integration allows operators to leverage their embedded RAD devices with their existing or new Brix System to streamline operations and reduce both their OPEX and CAPEX. Today, we are adding RAD's new MiNID SFPs to our integrated solution, further expanding the interoperability of the Brix System."
