JDSU announced it has been selected by Shanghai China Telecommunications Corporation (China Telecom), the incumbent telecommunications carrier for China, to ensure the installation, maintenance and monitoring of its IPTV services. China Telecom purchased multiple units of JDSU's HST-3000 IP Video test suite with ADSL2+ options and the JDSU QT-200 xDSL and Triple-Play Probe. Both products will be on display at IPTV World Forum Asia 06 in Shanghai, September 27-29 (booths 42-43).
"An IPTV test and monitoring system is critical and required for IPTV business deployment and quality of service (QoS) assurance," said Mr. Yu Lifeng, assistant CTO for Shanghai China Telecom and director of the Shanghai IPTV Project. "During the Shanghai China Telecom IPTV system trial, JDSU has provided valuable experience on IPTV testing and IPTV QoS monitoring as well as excellent support."
Combined, the HST-3000 and QT-200 platforms provide a total solution as required by China Telecom for ensuring IPTV QoS. These requirements include installing, maintaining and monitoring IPTV services and broadly reducing IPTV mean-time-to-repair (MTTR).
"China Telecom wanted a partner to help provide expanded digital video test solutions and JDSU is excited to be chosen," said John J. Jones IV, JDSU's vice president of sales and services for the Asia Pacific region. "China Telecom's selection of JDSU underscores the leadership reputation that our products enjoy in the IPTV and triple-play test market, including technologies carried over copper -- providing for a truly all-in-one solution."
