Bedford, MA (PRWEB) March 11, 2008
Empirix® Inc., which helps organizations adopt complex communications solutions with confidence, announced today that it has been awarded VON Magazine's Inaugural Innovator Award. Building on the legacy of the Pulver 100, for which Empirix was honored in 2007 and 2006, the VON Innovator Awards recognize companies representing the future of the Internet communications industry. Empirix remains a consistent presence on Pulver's award lists due to its product innovation and thought leadership in VoIP and IMS testing and monitoring. The company received this award for its innovative Hammer G5 test platform, the most comprehensive single-box solution for testing VoIP among any other real-time application in its class.
"The VON Magazine Innovator Awards recognize the Internet communications industry's best and brightest companies, and once again Empirix was a shoe-in for the list," said Bill Sell, Editorial Director and Publisher of VON Magazine. "Empirix has consistently demonstrated its ability to create real products that are needed in the market, and continually ranks favorably amongst the entries in the nomination process. Empirix should be proud of its accomplishments and we're pleased to include them as an Inaugural Innovator Award recipient."
"We're honored to be among those to receive this Inaugural award," said Gordon Eddy, Senior Director, Product Management at Empirix. "Our Hammer G5 has given network equipment manufacturers, application developers, and service providers added confidence that their service integrity, quality, security and interoperability are always exactly where they need to be. We're pleased to see that leading industry sources like VON Magazine recognize the impact our solutions have in the marketplace."
The Hammer G5 platform is built on Empirix's Hammer FX (VoIP feature test) and Hammer NXT (high density VoIP load generation) products, offering the combined capabilities of both in a unified user and programming interface. The Hammer G5 offers an integrated package for pure feature and load testing, in addition to more sophisticated scenarios of functional-tesing while under load. These capabilities are in particular demand from the world's leading network infrastructure suppliers, Voice over "X" application developers, Cable MSOs, and VoIP service providers .
