Shenick is the First Test Vendor to Deliver Complete TWAMP for Per-flow, Real-time Measurement : TWAMP Helps Ensure QoS and QoE for IP Service Level Agreements

Share Article

Shenick Network Systems, provider of per-flow IP communication test and monitoring systems, announced that it is the first and only vendor to offer complete two way active measurement protocol (TWAMP) measurement and testing capability as standardized by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) in RFC5357. Multiple service providers and equipment vendors are using Shenick’s diversifEye™ to verify, in real-time, the TWAMP functionality and performance of TWAMP enabled network elements and management servers.

The benefit with TWAMP is that we now have an industry-wide IP SLA standard that means we can check the pulse of every part of a network. The real winner is the end user who gets a great quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE) for everything from using the Internet, to downloading video or making voice calls across the Web.

The TWAMP protocol defines a flexible method for measuring round-trip IP performance among any two devices in a network that supports the standard, such as measuring time delay on a call. With TWAMP, service providers and equipment vendors can identify the congested parts of a network and confidently develop IP service level agreements (SLA's). Shenick's complete TWAMP capabilities give equipment vendors the tools to verify the functionality of their TWAMP implementations prior to customer acceptance testing. For service providers, Shenick's TWAMP capabilities provide a means for conducting vendor interoperability and large scale system testing prior to TWAMP network deployment.

Olga Yashkova, communication test sector analyst, Frost & Sullivan commented "With TWAMP, Shenick offers telecom operators and networking providers not only a means for identifying network congestion, but also for testing enhancements to IP SLA's across the industry. It leads to greater efficiencies across the networking and IP services market, a lower cost and greater ease of use by avoiding multiple test systems and non integrated software applications."

"Shenick is the first vendor to offer the benefits of complete TWAMP test to the market. We already work with the industry's leading telecom operators, and network equipment manufacturers to help them test, in real time, the performance of each network link for thousands of individual network nodes. (See release: Shenick Extends the Power of Full TWAMP Compliance Testing to Ciena)." said Robert Winters, chief marketing officer, Shenick Network Systems. "The benefit with TWAMP is that we now have an industry-wide IP SLA standard that means we can check the pulse of every part of a network. The real winner is the end user who gets a great quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE) for everything from using the Internet, to downloading video or making voice calls across the Web."

TWAMP enables carriers to test each node in a network for ultimate end user QoS, giving networks a "health check." Shenick's diversifEye is a completely integrated high performance test system that provides both network operators and communications equipment manufacturers with the ability to create and test the most realistic converged IP application usage scenarios covering QoS, individual subscriber experience, functional verification, high load and key performance limitations.
