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.
John Saw, Sprint's chief technology officer, discusses the provider's extensive use of fiber to support its 5G initiatives, which will bring broadband to rural America and supporter Sprint's renewed focus on the enterprise.
