VANCOUVER, BC (PRWEB) June 21, 2006 -–
Incognito Software today announced its multi-unit testing platform for cable modems and multimedia termination adapters (MTAs), the Broadband Command Center™ Multi-Unit MTA Test Appliance. Cable operators can now test as many as 44 devices with one appliance in less than five minutes, allowing quick redeployment of functional devices to the field and eliminating the cost of all unnecessary returns to the manufacturer.
The new multi-unit appliance comes in two models: BCC MTA Test Appliance MU 24 Port and MU 48 Port. The MTA Test Appliance MU 48 Port can test up to 12 PacketCable™ MTAs and 32 DOCSIS® cable modems simultaneously. Using the appliance’s simple point-and-click GUI, a regional field technician can process 1000 MTAs and 3000 cable modems in an eight-hour work day.
The product comes with device provisioning, VoIP call agent simulation, and test automation software pre-installed on a Linux server, as well as an Ethernet switch, modem multiplexer, and all the necessary cabling. It confirms device performance including VoIP functionality such as on/off-hook state changes, ring tone detection, station-to-station calling, and message processing based on Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) and Network Call Signaling (NCS) standards. Test results contain the corresponding device’s hardware MAC address for easy inventory tracking.
“With the right tools, cable operators can realize substantial savings from their operations,” said Patricia Steadman, CEO of Incognito Software. “Most modems and MTAs that subscribers return are actually fully functional and can be redeployed. Incognito Software’s new test platform helps broadband service providers increase profitability and productivity.” For more information visit http://www.incognito.com/products/BroadbandCommandTA/overview.jsp.
