加州SANTA CLARA市5月23日新闻 安捷伦科技和自动化通信测试软件开发商Net-O2今天宣布Net-O2公司的ATTEST连通错误管理(CFM)协议一致性测试组件与安捷伦的N2X多服务测试方案集成。网络设备生产商和服务供应商可以运用N2X确保其运营级以太网转换器和执行CFM协议机制的路由器符合相关IEEE和ITU标准,实现了坚固而成熟的以太网基础架构语音,视频和数据服务的稳定性。 CFM目前根据IEEE 802.1ag标准8.0草案规定提供端到端运营级以太网诊断功能,该功能允许服务供应商快速检测和定位故障,确保延迟敏感三合一服务的稳定传输。IEEE CFM协议机制与ITU-T Y.1731标准中的非常相似。这两种非常有影响力的标准之间的精调证明了CFM对于工业的实用性。安捷伦N2X测试组件位工业提供了首个用于确认CFM标准一致性的解决方案。 “转换器和路由器产品开发环节早期的一致性测试是多厂商网络间的互用性成功的先决条件,” 安捷伦公司数据网络运营部业务经理Rod Unverich说,“无论是发展标准,还是发现错误修理,每家厂商一直都加紧执行他们的协议,因此,每个产品推出都要进行强制性回归测试以保证与其服务供应商客户的审计和可追踪的一致性。” “我们看到行业领先的测试厂商在关键技术,如CFM上提供一致性测试组件越快,服务供应商就越有信心开发这些技术。”城域以太网论坛指定认证测试实验室Iometrix的首席执行官,运营级以太网行业杰出人物Bob Mandeville说,“以太网缺乏端到端OAM是广泛采用运营级以太网最后的障碍之一。因此,用于核实厂商协议一致性的可以进行CFM测试的设备一定会提高经营者在选择关键设备过程中的信心,还将确保雄辩的行业分析家预言的运营级以太网一定会实现。” “ATTEST CFM一致性测试组件目前正在Net-O2的客户实验室进行测试第二版实验,” Net-O2 科技公司西工工程部副总裁Manikantan Srinivasan说,“ATTEST CFM提供了约150项测试案例,这些测试案例旨在验正服务供应商网络设备和客户端设备中的CFM协议和管理支持的要求。一旦CFM符合802.1ag标准,这些早期使用CFM的厂商就可以确保网络间的无缝互用性。” 通过将ATTEST CFM协议测试组件的鲁棒性完整性与N2X一致性测试管理生产力效益相结合,N2X CFM一致性测试组件对安捷伦和Net-O2的长期协作具有影响力。CFM一致性测试组件是N2X方案中的多种运营级以太网一致性组件的最新版组件,该组件包括STP, RSTP, MSTP, LACP, VLAN, 802.1x, MEF 9以及MEF 14。 为了帮助厂商和服务供应商参与并克服运营级以太网的挑战,安捷伦将在2007年6月7日举办一场免费在线教育研讨会 ”确保IPTV和业务服务的运营级以太网鲁棒性”。参与者将探讨在开发和部署周期各阶段,测试如何降低展开运营级以太网服务和基础架构中的风险和成本。注册请登录网站:www.lightreading.com/webinars.asp. 美国价格和订购 安捷伦N2X多服务测试方案起价$28,000,登录网站:www.agilent.com/find/n2x查询更多CFM一致性组件产品信息。 有关Net-O2 Net-O2是一家创新的通信测试公司,致力于帮助客户大大降低测试时间,加快产品上市时间,Net-O2供应多种自动化测试组件用于IP协议,第二层协议和相关标准,查询Net-O2公司相关信息登录网站: www.net-o2.com. 关于安捷伦科技 安捷伦科技公司(NYSE:A)是全球领先的测量公司,同时也是通信、电子,生命科学和化学分析领域的技术领导者。公司拥有19000名员工,遍及全球110多个国家,为客户提供卓越服务。在2006年财政年度,安捷伦的净收入达到50亿美元。如欲了解关于安捷伦的详细信息,请登录网站www.agilent.com。 original text: [COLOR=#708090]Agilent Technologies and Net-O2 Announce World‘s First CFM Test Suite that Enhances Carrier Ethernet Reliability New N2X Connectivity Fault Management Conformance Test Suite Ensures Robustness of Triple Play Infrastructure and Services SANTA CLARA, Calif., and CHENNAI, India, May 23, 2007 Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) and Net-O2, a developer of automated communications testing software, today announced Net-O2‘s integration of its ATTEST Connectivity Fault Management (CFM) protocol conformance test suite into Agilent‘s N2X multiservices test solution. Network equipment manufacturers and service providers can use N2X to ensure their Carrier Ethernet switches and routers implementing the CFM mechanisms conform to the relevant IEEE and ITU-T standards, enabling the reliability of voice, video and data services over a robust and proven Ethernet infrastructure. Defined currently in IEEE 802.1ag draft 8.0, CFM provides end-to-end Carrier Ethernet diagnostic capabilities that allow service providers to rapidly detect and locate faults, ensuring the reliable delivery of delay-sensitive triple play services. The IEEE CFM mechanisms are very similar to those in the ITU-T Y.1731 standard. The tight alignment between these two influential standards bodies attests to the relevance of CFM to the industry. The Agilent N2X CFM test suite provides the industry‘s first solution for validating CFM standards compliance. "Conformance testing early in the switch-and-router product development cycle is a prerequisite to successful interoperability in multi-vendor networks," said Rod Unverich, business manager of Agilent‘s Data Networks Operation Division. "Every vendor constantly ‘tweaks‘ their protocol implementations, either as the standards evolve or simply as bugs are discovered and fixed over time. Therefore, ongoing regression testing for each release is mandatory to claim auditable and traceable compliance to their service-provider customers." "The sooner we see industry-leading test vendors offering conformance test suites on key enabling technologies like CFM, the more confident service providers will be to deploy these technologies," said Carrier Ethernet industry luminary Bob Mandeville, CEO of Iometrix, the appointed Certification Test Laboratory for the Metro Ethernet Forum. "Lack of end-to-end OAM for Ethernet was one of the final barriers to the wide-scale adoption of Carrier Ethernet. Consequently, CFM-capable test equipment utilized to verify vendor protocol compliance will certainly increase operator confidence levels in the crucial equipment selection process and will also ensure that the aggressive industry analyst predictions for Carrier Ethernet are indeed realized." "ATTEST CFM conformance suite is currently undergoing beta trials at Net-O2‘s customer labs," said Manikantan Srinivasan, VP, systems engineering of Net-O2 Technologies. "ATTEST CFM provides around 150 test cases designed to verify the CFM protocols and the management support requirements in service provider networking devices as well as in customer edge devices. Early adaptors of CFM can ensure seamless interoperability once they comply with the emerging 802.1ag standard." The N2X CFM conformance suite leverages the longstanding collaboration between Agilent and Net-O2 by combining the robustness and completeness of the ATTEST CFM protocol test suite with the productivity benefits of the N2X conformance test manager. The CFM conformance suite is the latest in the comprehensive range of Carrier Ethernet conformance suites offered on N2X, which include STP, RSTP, MSTP, LACP, VLAN, 802.1x, MEF 9 and MEF 14. To help vendors and service providers anticipate and overcome Carrier Ethernet challenges, Agilent will host a free online educational seminar, "Ensuring Carrier Ethernet Robustness for IPTV and Business Services," on June 7, 2007. Attendees will discover how testing at all stages of the development and deployment cycle can reduce the risks and costs of rolling out Carrier Ethernet services and infrastructure. Registration will be available at www.lightreading.com/webinars.asp. U.S. Pricing and Availability The Agilent N2X multiservices test solution is available at a starting price of $28,000.
