Teleste joins the VIAVI DAA Test-Ready Certification Program to demonstrate interoperability in distributed access networks

Press release

TURKU, FINLAND – 5 June 2019 – Teleste Corporation announces ecosystem collaboration with VIAVI Solutions, a global provider of network test, monitoring and assurance solutions as well as optical technologies. Acceptance as a Silver Partner in the VIAVI DAA Test-Ready Certification Program proves that Teleste has engaged with VIAVI and has roadmap in place to support interoperability between the company’s Distributed Access nodes and the VIAVI 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”, stated David Hering, Senior Product Line Manager, VIAVI.

The VIAVI DAA Test-Ready Certification Program anticipates the challenge set to operators and technology vendors by distributed access architectures like Remote PHY. If not carefully planned, the implementation of DAA can be disruptive to operators’ HFC maintenance practices and therefore standards-based, interoperable ecosystems are needed to guarantee robust and effective deployments of the technology.

“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 roll-out 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 Leppänen, 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.”

The promise of DAA for both operators and consumers is significant as the technology will enable subscribers to have Internet speeds even 100 times than most of them currently experience. The precise interoperability testing between technology vendors ensures that operators will be able to trust that their investments in the distributed access networks will pay dividends.
