Alcatel-Lucent Residential Service Delivery Solution Verification
To handle new multiplay services demands, service providers must upgrade their broadband remote access server (BRAS) equipment with next generation edge routers acting as broadband network gateways (BNG). Isocore and Ixia worked to verify Alcatel-Lucent's 7750 Service Router as a BNG for media-rich residential service delivery.
Test ConfigurationIsocore employed Ixia's IxNetwork to emulate and scale over 250,000 stateful subscriber hosts using a variety of residential access technologies including:
- Dual-stack IPv6 & IPv4 subscriber hosts over PPPoEv6 with a routed home gateway (RHG) residence
- Single IPv6 PD subscriber host over PPPoEv6 with a RHG residence
- Single IPv6 WAN-host subscriber host over PPPoEv6 with a bridged home gateway (BHG) residence
At the same time, IxNetwork generated high volumes of wire-rate multi-service IPv4 and IPv6 bi-directional traffic flows. Granular QoS settings and analysis enabled Isocore to validate video assurance capabilities and user quality of experience. Ixia was able to deliver high volumes of media-rich traffic over extended periods of time – a critical step in ensuring the test set-up represented real-world field deployments.
Using Ixia's test solutions, Isocore was able to execute its massively scalable test scenarios to meet and exceed real-world deployment conditions, providing assurance to Alcatel-Lucent's customers that the 7750 platform achieves the new IP architecture plans and deployments for residential services delivery. By removing risk, service providers can accelerate their plans and address consumer needs for high-performance video content and applications.
