TraceSpan's GPON Xpert(TM) Supports TR-069

RA'ANANA, Israel, December 17, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- TraceSpan Communications, a leader in broadband analysis and monitoring solutions, announces today a new version of the GPON Xpert™ analyzer, which includes embedded support for TR-069.

The growing popularity of in-home broadband devices is driving increased industry-adoption of TR-069, the CPE WAN Management Protocol defined by the Broadband Forum. GPON Xpert's support for TR-069 addresses the increasing testing needs for configuration of services over GPON ONUs and GPON-fed residential gateways.

"The growth in FTTx deployments along with the increasing number of TR-069-enabled devices has created a strong need for testing and troubleshooting these units," said Dr. Hanan Herzberg, TraceSpan founder and CEO. "We have responded to our customers' demands to address this need with the addition of TR-069 to our GPON Xpert analyzer. Supporting the GPON-fed TR-069-gateways expands GPON Xpert's capabilities to a new area and maintains its position as the leading multi-layer GPON testing tool in the market." With a solid installed base and a growing number of customers every month, GPON Xpert continues to be the standard de-facto GPON testing solution in the market. GPON Xpert's list of customers includes leading tier-1 telecom operators, manufacturers and test labs, many of which are involved in the deployment, testing and certification of TR-069 devices.

The TR-069 support is included in GPON Xpert's upper layer analysis module. It will be provided as a free-of-charge upgrade to existing GPON Xpert customers who have the upper layer option and are under a maintenance contract, as well as to those who renew their maintenance within this timeframe. These customers will also benefit from the additional enhancements and capabilities provided in this new version. These include enhancement of the unique Validation test mechanism for automatically validating the Ethernet VLAN Tagging parameters, allowing its expansion for applications such as WT-255-based interoperability testing; the latest amendments of the ITU G,988 recommendation for OMCI and those of G.984.3 for the TC layer, including support of the PON-ID maintenance capability.

I have been attending this seminal IT and networking conference since its inception in 1986 when it was called the TCP/IP Vendor Workshop, focused on interoperability of various TCP/IP program stacks.

What Fiber Mountain's Interop Recognition Means for Our Industry

When Fiber Mountain™ began its journey with a launch at Interop New York last fall, we certainly believed that we had a solution that would make a significant impact in the data center space.

What On-Board Optics Means for Density and Flexibility

This past week I read an article in Lightwave Magazine and another in Network World about the formation of the Consortium for On-board Optics (COBO), a group that seeks to create specifications and increase the faceplate density of data center switches and adapters.

Scaling Hyperscale in an Age of Exponential Growth and Virtualization

Over the past several years server, network, storage and application virtualization has revolutionized the way hyperscale data centers are built by consolidating workloads. The trend has simplified network architecture significantly and resulted in huge cost savings as well.
