Teleste has joined VIAVI Solutions' (NASDAQ:VIAV) DAA Test-Ready Certification Program as a Silver Partner. The collaboration is intended to support interoperability between Teleste's distributed access nodes and VIAVI's standards-based upstream ingress remediation and return sweep solution.
"VIAVI is pleased to welcome Teleste as a DAA Test-Ready Silver Partner. This partnership demonstrates the Teleste commitment to delivering critical maintenance capabilities including upstream sweep and spectral analysis vital to the success of their customers' DAA deployments", said David Hering, senior product line manager, VIAVI.
The VIAVI DAA Test-Ready Certification Program is intended to anticipate the test and measurement challenge of deploying DOCSIS distributed access architectures (DAA) like Remote PHY. If not carefully planned, the implementation of DAA can be disruptive to operators' HFC maintenance practices.
"We appreciate that VIAVI has welcomed us as a partner in their DAA Test-Ready Certification Program. It is up to us, as technology vendors, to enable robust and fast rollouts of the DAA technology by solving challenges such as DAA rollout readiness, maintenance of legacy video services and management systems and, last but not least, interoperability of the technology that covers not only the access devices and CCAP cores but also versative testing and management solutions as well," said Olli Leppanen, vice president of distributed access business for Teleste. "We have set a target on industry-wide, standards-based development of distributed access networks and are looking forward to becoming a VIAVI DAA Test-Ready Gold Partner in the future."
