FREMONT, Calif. -- VeEX today unveiled field portable test solutions capable of performing throughput testing up to 10 Gbit/s due to integration with Speedtest by Ookla. Available on CX350s-D3.1, and CX380s-D3.1 software for the TX300s platform, the Speedtest Powered throughput testing allows broadband service providers to reliably test their services on 1GE, 10GE, and DOCSIS 3.1 interfaces.
Speedtest by Ookla measures Internet connection speed and network efficiency by both service providers and their customers. Speedtest integration into VeEX’s test solutions leverages the hardware and software resources a test tool can provide for reliable and repeatable results, at full line rate. This is key to service providers, since they need to provide undeniable proof to customers that their broadband service meets service level agreements (SLAs).
"High-speed broadband subscribers are sometimes frustrated and may file unnecessary complaints as they try using regular computers to check their Internet speeds at or above 1 Gbit/s. Service providers face the challenge of proving their service is indeed being delivered as promised and that PCs are not enough to validate high-speed broadband services anymore," said Ricardo Torres, director of Product Marketing, Ethernet Solutions at VeEX, in the press release.

We will explore several fiber network environments, common vulnerabilities, and the business impact of failures. Fiber networks are typically a combination of owned and leased fiber. Learn how to reduce MTTR by up to 60% when an event occurs and how to detect degradation before it generates a service impact. Fiber monitoring of leased fiber helps ensure that the responsible party is dispatched for repair and SLAs can be managed. We will discuss both in service and out of service monitoring. Learn about the opportunities to improve business results in the following environments:
Hyperscale datacenters- the business need for near 100% uptime
5G small cell combined with leased fiber - ensuring the SLA for leased fiber
Long haul and Metro dark and lit fiber monitoring - reducing MTTR and preventing damage
FTTX construction and service activation in the access or MSO network - accelerating time to revenue
