Alcatel Teams Up With Test and Measurement Leaders to Create an End-To-End Solution for IP-based Video Service Offerings

DALLAS, Nov. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Alcatel (NYSE: ALA; Paris: CGEP) today announced they have added key test and measurement (T&M) vendors to their IPTV ecosystem to deliver an end-to-end solution for IP-based video deployments. Realizing the critical role that T&M solutions play in the effective delivery of IP-based video services, Alcatel has proactively established formal relationships with four best-in-class participants in the T&M segment; Agilent Technologies, IneoQuest, JDSU and Spirent.

Testing performed in labs and during installation significantly reduces the potential for problems during deployment and helps prepare services for production networks. Once in the field, unlike legacy voice and data networks, the technical complexity of solutions providing advanced video services creates the need for ongoing monitoring. By ensuring the development and delivery of a comprehensive IPTV T&M solution to the marketplace, Alcatel is demonstrating its commitment to reduce time-to-market, lower development costs and minimize risks for IP-based video service offerings.

"For the new breed of IP-based service offerings to fulfil their potential to consumers and enterprises alike, it is critical that operators have the ability to test and measure the video service across all segments of their network at the most granular level," said Monika Maurer, President of Alcatel's fixed solutions activities. "While there are many participants offering point solutions for specific areas, by working with our customers we realized the importance of establishing a tested, truly interoperable solution that incorporates all of the essential components that operators need to ensure the level of service that their customers expect."

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
