Accedian Networks™—the leading provider of High Performance Service Assurance™ solutions for IP/Ethernet based networks announces a partnership with Nokia Siemens Networks. Both companies will team up to offer service providers a solution to assure high performance of IP/Ethernet networks.

By integrating their respective best-of-breed products for packet networks, the two companies enable service providers to stay on top of their network performance and deliver improved end-user satisfaction.

"The data deluge in mobile networks is quite a challenge for mobile service providers,” said Martin Brundert, Head of Solutions Management for Network Systems at Nokia Siemens Networks. “Therefore, we made Accedian devices an integral part of our solutions with fully verified interoperability between our base stations and Accedian network elements covering the entire backhauling network. Our solutions help customers to verify and maintain the performance of packet networks. This significantly improves the Smartphone user experience.”

"Mobile operators are looking to Nokia Siemens Networks as the leader for IP/Ethernet based backhauling to solve the critical performance challenges with data networks so that they can optimize them for peak performance to meet the most stringent SLA requirements," said Patrick Ostiguy, CEO of Accedian Networks. “Our high performance Ethernet OAM-based service assurance platform is the perfect complement to Nokia Siemens Networks’ comprehensive mobile communications solutions.”
