Brix Networks and Texas Instruments will team up to deliver Internet-protocol end-point service-assurance management.
The two vendors said their collaboration will give service providers the ability to collect performance information and provide crucial last-mile visibility into the quality of experience of providers' revenue-generating offerings, including voice over IP, IPTV and advanced data services.
Brix is a provider of converged service assurance solutions.
“TI has shipped more than 350 million ports across IP phones; residential modems and gateways; set-top boxes; and carrier-class equipment," TI director of service-provider strategy Debbie Greenstreet said in a prepared statement.
"Working together with Brix Networks, our PIQUA system automates the process of gathering IP-performance metrics and converts these data into actionable information,” she added. “This integration empowers providers, enterprises and equipment manufacturers to dramatically improve their subscribers' and users' quality of experience and reduce overall network-operating costs.”
