NetTest has signed a definitive agreement to co-operate with Casabyte in a partnership to bring integrated network and service assurance solutions to wireless operators

NetTest has signed a definitive agreement to co-operate with Casabyte, a leading provider of end-to-end wireless service quality monitoring solutions in a partnership to bring integrated network and service assurance solutions to wireless operators. To enable wireless operators of 2G, 2.5G and 3G networks to attract and retain subscribers, Casabyte and NetTest are working together to bring integrated solutions for end-to-end service assurance and troubleshooting of services.

This partnership combines Casabyte's RCATS with NetTest's MasterQuest in an integrated solution for fully automated, centrally managed active testing, performance monitoring and trouble shooting.

This will enable immediate and seamless network tracing and troubleshooting of any failed test, as well as automatic launch of test suites if network and service KPIs indicate potential degradation of the end-user service level.

Whereas MasterQuest provides in-depth understanding of the performance of the network and services seen from a network centric view, RCATS validates the offered services from an end-user perspective through its active test environment.

By combining the network centric view with the end-user view, operators can get a complete view of their operation and quality of service.

The agreement also means that NetTest will become a distributor of Casabyte's Service Assurance solutions for active test and roaming test solutions in EMEA and APAC.

"Our co-operation with NetTest will significantly increase our market presence in the EMEA and APAC regions, where NetTest's qualified sales and support organisation will enable us to reach a global audience with our Wireless Service quality assurance solutions", said John Read, CEO of Casabyte.

"Our co-operation with NetTest has its offset in the Service Management Alliance, and we see this as yet another example of how the alliance breeds enthusiasm among its members to create new and integrated solutions that will benefit wireless operators".

"Both RCATS and RoamerNet offer very immediate and tangible benefits to mobile operators which implies that there is a great worldwide potential for this partnership".

"In addition to this, Casabyte's wireless Service Assurance solutions are the ideal complement to our present OSS portfolio, which consolidates our position as a full OSS solution provider".

"As a leader in the wireless network and service monitoring market it is a natural step for us to broaden our offering through partnerships with leading vendors in different areas of OSS".

"We believe that our customers will recognise the significant benefits that these integrated solutions offer", said Jorgen Weber, Vice President and head of the Systems Business Unit at NetTest.
