JDSU has developed a new test methodology, known as RFC 6349, in collaboration with two global network operators. It was recently published by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), an organization dedicated to developing and promoting Internet standards, as a repeatable service activation test method for managed IP networks.

RFC 6349 benefits include:

  • ?Customer satisfaction improved by providing deeper visibility into the application and TCP layer, enabling service providers to more precisely measure the network’s ability to reliably support video and other unpredictable, high-bandwidth traffic driven by social media sites such as Facebook and YouTube.
  • ?Every major Ethernet service addressed, including Ethernet backhaul, Ethernet business services and cloud computing, simplifying the installation process.
  • ?Operating expenses reduced as field technicians install and test new services more efficiently, using the methodology to evaluate the TCP and application layer in less than five minutes.

The TCP throughput test methodology is a communications test industry milestone because traditional installation methods, including RFC 2544, do not entirely verify the ability of the network to carry high-bandwidth application traffic since only the Ethernet and IP layers are tested. The new test method helps service providers to experience the network as their customers do.?

JDSU has integrated the methodology in its TrueSpeed automated TCP test solution.
