Tektronix Communications, a leading worldwide provider of Network Intelligence and Communications Test Solutions, today unveiled the Spectra2u Core Network test platform for the Spectra2 protocol test product line.

Built on an Intel® Dual Quad Core® processing architecture, Spectra2u allows network equipment manufacturers and telecom operators to test NGN, VoIP and converged networks for functionality, conformance, performance and media quality – all from a single, high capacity, multi-user test platform.

The Spectra2u offers a low-cost footprint supporting IP and TDM interfaces for signalling and media.

“The Spectra2u provides the industry’s best ease-of-use and automation, with increases of up to 500 percent in call control capacity and over 200 percent SIP endpoint capacity increase,” said Richard Kenedi, VP and General Manager of Test and Optimization, Tektronix Communications.

“When it comes to testing the Core Network, Spectra2u is completely field upgradeable for capacity and port expansion and has the capability to share interface boards across users.”

Some of the benefits of the Spectra2u platform include:

High signalling and media load testing
Hundreds of thousands of endpoint emulations
Faster user response and heightened user experience
User-shared interface boards
PSTN & NGN protocol testing from a single interface board
Field upgradeable capacity adds without additional hardware
Complete portability of software from legacy platforms
Portable and rack mount configurations

The new state-of-the-art Spectra2u platform enables greater testing productivity especially when combined with the newly released 7.0 Spectra2 software which includes the following capabilities:

M2PA Transport for ISUP and TCAP testing
Support for SIP Re-Invite Method to address mid-call codec changes
Multiple Generator Models for enabling the simultaneous execution of multi-protocol load tests from a single user licence
H248v3 support for testing multi-party calls, message segmentation, and the TISPAN Ia interface
SIGTRAN support for ISUP, TCAP, and BICC testing on the low cost PC based Spectra2|SE testing solution

Whether testing an NGN protocol such as SIP, H.248, or DIAMETER; or a PSTN protocol such as ISUP, BICC or TCAP, Tektronix Communications’ Spectra2 has a solution that can accommodate your Core Test needs.
