JDSU, NetSocket Partner on PacketPortal

NetSocket, the creator of the world’s first real-time cloud service assurance solutions, announces its relationship with JDSU as a PacketPortal™ application partner. PacketPortal is JDSU’s recently launched Smart Network Application Platform (SNAP) that allows communications service providers to more intelligently capture and analyze network data remotely to provide the highest-quality subscriber experience.

NetSocket delivers immediate insight into cloud networks, providing complete service visibility. It enables network managers to anticipate, isolate and remediate IP service issues before they become end-user problems. NetSocket’s solution automatically provides a comprehensive view of content, session and IP topology on a hop-by-hop basis. It captures and correlates network behavior in real time on any size network and across multiple vendors. NetSocket provides a trouble-free cloud experience, ensuring higher session quality and lower support costs.

PacketPortal enhances the capabilities and improves the efficiency of today’s network monitoring and troubleshooting software applications by extending visibility to the network edge while reducing complexity by focusing on only critical data. The partnering relationship announced today allows customers to use PacketPortal along with the NetSocket application to truly visualize the customer experience for IP cloud-based communications and collaboration services.

“Through our partnership with NetSocket, JDSU creates new opportunities for enterprises and service providers to derive value from the PacketPortal platform,” said Doug Fantuzzi, vice president in JDSU’s Communications Test and Measurement business segment.

“By integrating with PacketPortal, NetSocket can provide carriers and enterprises with immediate visibility into the location and causes of customer experience issues, especially in remote sites where previously it was difficult to obtain data,” said John White, CEO, NetSocket. “Now we can extend our correlation/isolation abilities to a broader market and reduce troubleshooting time and costs, minimize downtime, and improve productivity.”

JDSU will demonstrate the PacketPortal-enabled NetSocket solution this month at Interop 2012, May 8-10 in Las Vegas, Nev., at JDSU’s booth No. 2443. JDSU is also exhibiting at the DISA (Defense Information Systems Agency) Customer Partnership Conference in Tampa, May 7-9, booth No. 942.
