The NSA for UTRAN software provides automated instrument configuration for lub, lur, lu-CS, and lu-PS interfaces as well as the capability to perform Multi Interface Call Trace with user-plane tracking capability.
Under the new agreement Astellia will provide its unified service assurance system for TELUS covering 3G UTRAN and Core data networks, which is expected to help the company serve the needs of multiple teams such as network performance, optimisation, NOC, handset validation, marketing and management.
In addition Agilent Technologies said the J6801B offers a new UTRAN (UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access Network) optimisation measurement set, enabling simplified HSDPA and UTRAN performance and resource control characterisation.
Simple pass/fail measurements are not effective enough to ensure the quality necessary for W-CDMA mobile phones or user equipment (UE) and base stations, known in W-CDMA as the Universal Terrestrial Radio Access Network (UTRAN).
Under the contact Alcatel-Lucent will supply NewCore with its UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access Network (UTRAN), based on its multi-standard radio access solution, including radio network controllers, node B base stations and a flexible wireless network management system.
The latest version runs under Motorola's Linux operating system within the recently introduced HXP chassis and offers on-board Ethernet/ATM and H.110 interfaces to provide connectivity to the UMTS radio access network (UTRAN) and the public switched telephone network (PSTN) as well as to IP-based public land mobile networks (PLMN).
