ANRITSU has announced a full range of fixed mobile convergence (FMC) solutions for the increasing number of broadband, wireless and IP network operators requiring advanced service assurance capabilities.
The latest versions of MasterClaw and NetClaw expand the boundaries of Anritsu's test and Quality of Service product line to address the latest needs for monitoring, analysing and troubleshooting any type of network.
The newest version of MasterClaw (formerly MasterQuest) delivers the richest signalling data for service assurance purposes, including true broadband 24x7 signalling and payload monitoring.
MasterClaw helps Telco and cable operators optimise service assurance across the spectrums of network performance, fault systems, monitoring and service management.
Based upon a unique cross-technology monitoring platform covering circuit, packet-switched and wireless and wireline domains, MasterClaw supports FMC network architectures and encompasses network service, customer and partner information.
The favourable economics of outsourced VoIP hosting have driven Anritsu to evolve its NetClaw (formerly InterQuest Analyser) as a single tool that tracks network and service quality while dynamically measuring how end-users experience Quality of Service.
NetClaw enables service providers to quickly provision, troubleshoot and optimise convergent networks across VoIP and SS7 domains, and is designed with advanced applications for service testing, network monitoring and data acquisition in a single box.
Capable of analysing voice quality, jitter, latency, delay, echo and packet loss, NetClaw can predetermine if VoIP quality will deteriorate. The product also provides the most cost-efficient way of passively monitoring RTP and RTCP packet flows in the network to ensure that service providers deliver the quality that customers demand.
