MARKHAM, Ontario (PRWEB) September 26, 2005
Navtel Communications Inc. a leading developer of high performance VoIP test solutions, has announced that Newport Networks-Chepstow, UK-a leading manufacturer of carrier class Session Border Controllers, has selected NavtelÂs high performance Session Border Controller (SBC) test solution. NavtelÂs SBC solution will be used by Newport Networks in product verification and support.
NavtelÂs SBC solution is a single chassis capable of emulating hundreds of thousands of diverse SIP endpoints and loading any device with hundreds of calls per second with real-world call holding times. In addition to emulating the signaling component, NavtelÂs SBC test solutions can generate up to 128,000 simultaneous RTP streams per chassis with bearer path verification and encoded with most common codecs. The solution also supports the testing of Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) implementations with TOS and VLAN tagging and collects numerous QoS statistics. Since Session Border Controllers come in decomposed and integrated configurations, NavtelÂs solution provides for generation of combined signaling and RTP on a single IP address or separate signaling and RTP generation on different IP addresses.
ÂNewportÂs future-proof session border controller provides the industryÂs highest scalability, and we needed a test solution that matched our capabilitiesÂ says Mike Wilkinson, VP Marketing - Newport Networks. ÂOur technical teams conducted an extensive evaluation and that concluded Navtel had the best solution for our Session Border Controller test needsÂ
When asked to comment on the win, Alvin Francis, Director of Product Management at Navtel, said ÂNewport represents an exciting new opportunity for Navtel in testing these critical network elements. By working with Newport, Navtel has developed the strongest Session Border Controller test solution available and have gained invaluable insights into the testing requirements for Session Border Controllers in the emerging IMS technology.Â
