TURKU, FINLAND – 26 September 2019 – Teleste Corporation has become a Gold Partner in VIAVI DAA Test-Ready Certification Program, initiated by VIAVI Solutions, a global provider of network test, monitoring, and assurance solutions as well as optical technologies. Being recognized as a Gold Partner demonstrates full interoperability with Teleste’s Distributed Access nodes with VIAVI instruments and systems to perform end-to-end return sweep and upstream spectrum analysis.
“By achieving Gold status, partners in the VIAVI DAA Test-Ready Certification Program have demonstrated that they are at the top of our standards-based test ecosystem, driving successful DAA solutions for operators who are looking for future-proof deployments of the technology in their networks”, stated Koji Okamoto, Senior Director, Converged Instruments and Virtual Test, VIAVI.
The VIAVI DAA Test-Ready Certification Program anticipates the challenge set for operators and technology vendors by distributed access architecture rollouts. If not carefully planned, the implementation of DAA can be disruptive to operators’ HFC maintenance practices and, therefore, standards-based, interoperable ecosystems are needed to guarantee the robust and effective deployments of the technology.
“Recognition as a Gold Partner is a significant milestone for us in moving toward the standards-based, industry-wide interoperability of DAA technology that covers not only the access devices and CCAP cores but also versatile testing, and management solutions as well. VIAVI DAA Test-Ready Certification Program is also important for cable operators as they are looking for robust, future-proof solutions to address the ever-growing bandwidth demands”, stated Olli Leppänen, Vice President of Distributed Access business for Teleste.
