Tollgrade Communications, Inc. has announced availability of a new LoopCare Test Operations Support System feature to support testing of voice services in a fiber-to-the-premises network.
This LoopCare Release 2.6 feature is designed to provide seamless integration with existing loop testing processes for POTS and ISDN services so that telephone service providers can continue to enjoy the benefits of flow-through testing in this new type of network. The architecture for this distributed fiber access network system consists of Alcatel's H-ONT and P-OLT passive optical access elements using General Bandwidth's G6 multi-service application platform serving as a VoATM network access gateway to traditional Class 5 Switches. Tollgrade intends to undertake development efforts to extend this solution to include support for additional FTTP network manufacturers in the future.
The LoopCare Test OSS is a consumer-based test and management system. Today, LoopCare tests more than 150 million access lines worldwide.
Tollgrade Communications is based in Pittsburgh, PA. For more information visit
