JDSU Introduces Special Edition of Managed Wireless Service Assurance Solution in Advance of Beijing Olympics



    MILPITAS, CA, and MACAU, China, Nov. 12 /CNW/ -- JDSU today introduced a
specially designed edition of RoamerNet(R), its managed service assurance
solution for wireless network operators. The new exclusive offering allows
wireless operators to test service performance at multiple Olympic venues in
China months before hundreds of thousands of wireless subscribers travel to
the games in Beijing next summer. RoamerNet helps ensure quality of service
and protects valuable roaming revenue without requiring mobile operators to
deploy fixed test and measurement assets.
    JDSU has also introduced the "Mobile Service Assurance Kit," providing
information on best test and measurement practices for wireless service
assurance. The kit includes a new white paper, "Managed Automated Service
Testing: Best Practices for Improving the Mobile User's Experience," which
addresses cost-effective test approaches that can improve service performance
and reduce customer churn.

    The Beijing Olympics will take place in 37 venues across seven cities and
attendance is expected to total more than half a million, including 500,000
visitors, 10,708 athletes, 70,000 volunteers, 17,600 press and 4,000 staff.
Mobile communications activity among these travelers will be intense as they
text, phone home, conduct business, transmit photos and otherwise share their
experience with friends, family and business associates. JDSU's RoamerNet
allows operators to emulate subscriber experience, including roaming
conditions, in any location in the world and to address network issues before
they negatively impact their customers.
    "Quality of service is a critical business metric for mobile content
service providers -A- this applies not only to monitoring service quality on
the network but also the experience of customers roaming onto other operators'
networks," said Patrick Kelly, senior analyst, OSS Observer. "As operators
prepare their network for roaming subscribers visiting the games, JDSU's
RoamerNet provides a cost-effective approach to managing service quality for a
diverse set of services."
    "It is critical that mobile service providers take steps to ensure
service quality everywhere their customers go," said Jerry Gentile, general
manager of JDSU's Service Assurance Solutions division. "RoamerNet gives
operators the ability to gauge and assess service performance metrics that
ultimately determine a wireless subscriber's quality of experience. Wireless
service providers need to take action now in order to make sure their networks
are ready for the games next summer."
    JDSU will showcase its wireless service assurance solutions, including
RoamerNet, at a number of upcoming industry events, including:

    
    -- GSMA Mobile Asia Congress, Macau, China, November 12-15, 2007 (JDSU

    More about RoamerNet

    An element of JDSU's Service Assurance Solutions product portfolio,
RoamerNet uses a worldwide footprint of remote test probes, giving service
providers a subscription-based, turn-key solution to define and execute
customized, interactive tests on schedule or on-demand. Test results on
service-specific measurements are available in real-time through the multi-
user, secure RoamerNet Web interface. To emulate the user experience, test
