Accedian Introduces Seamless Throughput Measurement

    MONTREAL, Oct. 11 /CNW/ -- Light Reading's Ethernet Expo 2007, booth #329
-- Accedian Networks Inc., a leading provider of Service Assurance solutions
and Ethernet Demarcation Devices, today announcedthe introduction of a new
technology allowing Ethernet Service Providers to validate the maximum
throughput of a circuit while the end-customer traffic remains completely
    The new patent-pending feature allows carriers to prove the end-user is
getting the bandwidth he's paying for without having to bring down the
service, and thus generating considerable savings in OPEX by avoiding the use
of costly maintenance windows (nights and weekends). Furthermore, it allows
periodically exercising maximum service performance after commissioning
changes in the network.
    "For the past several years, RFC-2544 has been the standard method to
validate the performance of an Ethernet Virtual Circuit at the time of turn-up
or out-of-service," said Patrick Ostiguy CEO of Accedian Networks. "Accedian
now offers a breakthrough method to perform in-service RFC-2544 validation
non-intrusively, while end-user traffic continues flowing seamlessly."
    Embodied within Accedian's Ethernet Demarcation Devices, this technology
is the first to add Throughput Measurement as part of End-to-end live Ethernet
SLA verification. Completely non-service affecting and based on the RFC-2544
standard, this new feature utilizes the end-customer traffic as part of the
test pattern in order to exercise End-to-end CIR/EIR/CBS/EBS parameters of an
EVC while the end-user applications continue flowing through in a seamless
    Accedian's Seamless Throughput Measurement will be demonstrated at Light
Reading's Ethernet EXPO 2007, October 15-17, 2007, New York, NY, New York
Hilton, booth #329.
