Sunrise Telecom(R) Launches Highly Integrated MTT(R) Products

Sunrise Telecom(R) Launches Highly Integrated MTT(R) Products for Access Infrastructure, In-Home Wiring and Triple Play Services Testing
First test system to deliver xDSL and triple play services testing in a
single, intuitive handheld unit.
SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sunrise Telecom(R)
Incorporated (OTC: SRTI), a leader in test and measurement solutions for
today's telecom, wireless and cable networks, announced its MTT(R) Triple
Play Series test package -- the industry's first comprehensive access
infrastructure, in-home wiring and triple play services test set. This
ground-breaking test system meets the urgent need for both access
infrastructure and services testing in a single, handheld test set,
enabling technicians to drive new standards in the customer quality of
experience (QoE) by ensuring that the physical infrastructure and video,
voice and data services are turned up right the first time.
"This triple play services test set is another proof-point that clearly
demonstrates Sunrise Telecom's commitment to bringing new technologies and
leading-edge test systems to market," said Olga Yashkova, industry analyst,
Communication Test & Measurement, Frost & Sullivan.
While the telecommunication industry is still in the early stages of
triple play bundles, the benefits can be significant for subscribers:
substantial savings for choosing a single provider and a single bill. In
response to the anticipated demand, the integrated triple play test
equipment market is poised for tremendous growth. This market, which
registered revenues of $91.7 million in 2006, is expected to hit revenues
of $697.9 million by 2013 with the CAGR of 33.6 percent from 2006 to 2013,
according to Frost & Sullivan.
Sunrise Telecom's new MTT Triple Play Series is ideal for installation
and maintenance technicians testing the performance and QoE of an xDSL
infrastructure. With this new test suite, technicians can test the physical
plant, in-home wiring and IP-based services (IPTV, video on demand (VOD),
VoIP, and data) with a single test set to ensure the high level of QoE
customers demand.
"In today's highly competitive market, QoE determines the success of
new services and significantly impacts bottom-line performance. Sunrise
Telecom's innovative approach helps service providers enhance QoE, increase
customer retention, and reduce operating expenses that would be driven
higher by the need for multiple, single-purpose test sets and numerous
truck rolls," said Bahaa Moukadam, vice president of marketing for Sunrise
Telecom's Telecom Products Group. "Our customers tell us that the MTT
Triple Play Series test set delivers a superior value and is unmatched in
portability, functionality and ease of use."
The breakthrough MTT Triple Play Series features:
* Copper, Fiber and xDSL testing: Full suite of outside plant copper
assessment tests covering the voice to VDSL2 frequency range; Fiber
OTDR and power meter; and xDSL CPE Emulation allowing the technician
to verify achievable data rate, SNR Margin, and error counter metrics
against Pass/Fail thresholds
* In-home wiring: Home Phoneline Networking Alliance (HPNA) Device
Emulation critical for assessing the in-home wiring capability to
support IPTV signals by running HPNA diagnostic tests
* Services testing including IPTV Set Top Box emulation with MPEG video
stream analysis, Voice and Data over IP test suite. Unlike alternatives, which test only Layer 1 or individual services,
the MTT Triple Play Series integrates comprehensive functionality into a
single, easy-to-use test set, increasing technicians' effectiveness and
shortening the time required to turn up services and complete customers'
service requests. By eliminating the need for multiple test tools for
infrastructure and services testing, Sunrise Telecom's MTT Triple Play
Series reduces the number of truck rolls required for proper installation
and maintenance and helps service providers realize a higher, faster return
on their triple play investments.
The Triple Play Series is part of the MTT modular handheld platform.
With over 43,000 units deployed, the MTT solution provides field
technicians the industry's broadest range of testing capabilities for
installation, troubleshooting and maintenance. Additionally, the unit's
modular design supports Gigabit Ethernet, 1, 2 and 4 Gbps Fibre Channel,
and Transport Infrastructure testing.
