Amdocs Launches Core Network Testing Service for Higher Network Quality and Accelerated Service Delivery

ST. LOUIS, June 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amdocs (NASDAQ:DOX), the leading provider of customer experience solutions, today launched the Amdocs Core Network Testing Service, enabling service providers to deliver superior customer experience by ensuring high service quality, while reducing total cost of network ownership and accelerating time to market for new services. By eliminating multiple vendor testing cycles that increase operational costs and delay service introductions, the new service will address the growing complexity of physical and virtualized networks as well as new network technologies and services such as 4G LTE and VoLTE.

According to recent research1 conducted by Coleman Parkes for Amdocs, service providers are currently using more than four different vendors on average to conduct network testing to support service introductions. This highlights the need for a holistic approach that will simplify the overall testing process across the LTE packet core and IMS (IP multimedia subsystem) applications such as VoLTE.

The Amdocs Core Network Testing Service provides test scoping and planning, network equipment testing, interoperability testing, pilot testing, network test lab management and device certification for both physical and virtualized network functions (NFV) testing. By utilizing a common Amdocs BEAT framework and methodologies powered by data analytics, Amdocs can unify and automate IT and network testing activities, including operational and business support systems, and now the network packet core.

“Service providers are introducing advanced LTE services and transforming to open virtualized networks to improve service agility. We are seeing strong demand to deploy new network features at an accelerated rate, requiring faster and rigorous testing cycles across complex multivendor physical and virtual networks,” said Ann Hatchell, head of network marketing at Amdocs. “Amdocs brings a vendor-neutral approach to core network testing with strong network credentials in orchestration, policy and service control, and analytics, along with extensive experience in RAN and SON testing tools and practices. With our unified approach to IT and now core network testing, service providers can support an agile business strategy that allows them to rapidly develop and scale new services, while delivering the service quality that customers expect.”
