Infrastructure for Triple Play

Data Gateway Components

Authentication and tunneling gateways (B-RAS/LAC/LNS) use the PPPoX protocol family. They are critical components for controlling access and billing in mass markets.

EANTC offers a wide range of gateway prioritization, security and performance tests. Our realistic scalability tunnel tests begin where others end -- providing you with the network quality assurance that your solution meets demand.

We understand the different solutions for inter-carrier and wholesale interconnection, assisting your network design development in government regulated environments.

Access/Aggregation Infrastructure

Access networks for FTTH, DSL, broadband cable and WiMAX face the most challenging scalability, security and management issues today. Triple Play "real rime" applications such as voice, video, TV and gaming extend the traditional demands placed on the network edge.

EANTC's expert engineers have long standing experience in testing Ethernet, ATM, or IP-based access networks with a focus on high availability, QoS, multicast snooping and related protocols.

Triple Play Ethernet networks pose many challenges to Service Providers in such areas as bandwidth preservation, provisioning, multicast support and scalability. EANTC offers extensive stress and performance testing as well as conformance testing.
Through ongoing involvement with the MEF, the MFA Forum and the IETF, EANTC gains first-hand knowledge and is positioned to consult your organization in preparing and implementing Ethernet service offerings.

Customer Premises Equipment

Home/small business gateways are the mass market devices in Triple Play services - nevertheless they are one of the most complex and most business-critical components.

We ensure that the local loop and CPE routers or modems are able to support, transport and provide quality voice, video and data services.  In addition, we verify rate limiting and security protection capabilities of your CPE device of choice.
