Covergence's series of Eclipse access-edge session border controllers provides the industry's most comprehensive scalability so we looked for a solution that would provide the rigorous testing that we need to ensure our products perform flawlessly in real-world deployments
Markham, ON (PRWEB) March 19, 2007
Navtel Communications Inc. the leader in IMS, VoIP and IP to IP gateway test solutions has announced that Covergence®, the leading provider of session border control solutions for the access edge, has selected Navtel's high performance test solution for product verification and support.
Navtel's provides a single chassis solution that is capable of emulating hundreds of thousands of diverse SIP endpoints(UDP, TCP & TLS) and can load any device with hundreds of calls per second with real-world call holding times. In addition to emulating the signaling component, Navtel's test solutions can generate up to 128,000 simultaneous, multi-codec RTP streams per chassis with bearer path verification. 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, Navtel's solution provides for generation of combined signaling and RTP on a single IP address or separate signaling and RTP generation on different IP addresses.
"Covergence's series of Eclipse access-edge session border controllers provides the industry's most comprehensive scalability so we looked for a solution that would provide the rigorous testing that we need to ensure our products perform flawlessly in real-world deployments," said Kenneth Kuenzel, Founder, VP of Engineering and CTO of Covergence. "After an extensive evaluation of several test vendors, we selected Navtel because it was the only solution that met our requirements for large scale emulation, IMS support, TLS support and ease of use."
"Navtel's test solutions are used by a large number of VoIP and IMS customers and we are very excited to add Covergence to this list," said Alvin Francis, Vice President of Marketing for Navtel Communications. "Navtel's IMS and Voice over IP test solutions include the industry's leading applications to test the various network elements in the IMS network including P/S/I CSCFs, Application Servers, Security gateways, Border Gateway Functions and Session Border Controllers. These test applications are designed to allow our customers to test their products with network traffic loads that reflect real-world network deployments."
