The Accedian EtherNID™ now allows constant in-service monitoring of Service Level Agreement (SLA) parameters including: packet loss, latency (delay), jitter (delay variation) and continuous End-To-End path Continuity Check (availability).
Using a unique silicon-based architecture, the EtherNID™ features the market’s lowest intrinsic latency and jitter, thus allowing it to yield the highest-precision measurements with an outstanding 1 microsecond resolution and provide a true view of the end customer experience.
“In a world where Best-Effort Carrier Ethernet is no longer acceptable or sufficient,” said Patrick Ostiguy, CEO of Accedian Networks, “the EtherNID™ now allows Carriers and Operators to ensure and guarantee their Service Level Agreements throughout the End-to-End path, on an ongoing basis, 24/7, and provides a reliable way to Map-out the Health of their Network.”
Accedian Networks’ PAA™ operates in a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint fashion and is capable of monitoring multiple simultaneous flows (Multi-SLA™). Furthermore, it operates at both Layer 2 and Layer 3 (IP) and can assure SLAs on a per-VLAN, per-CoS, per-ToS and per-EVC basis.
Accedian Networks (booth #1007) will be exhibiting its EtherNID™ solutions as part of CompTel Spring 2007 Convention & Trade Expo, Las Vegas, NV, Venetian Hotel, February 27th-March 1st, 2007.
