Tektronix Inc. announced that BT has chosen GeoProbe and Advanced Performance Monitoring (APM) from Tektronix's Unified Assurance (UA) suite for its next generation network, 21st Century Network (21CN).

Building on a long-term strategic partnership, Tektronix will initially provide network assurance solutions for voice service as BT transitions from a traditional circuit switched network to carrying voice services over a next generation IP network, requiring the migration of approximately two crore (20 million) customers. Tektronix' UA solution will be deployed across the entire network, monitoring each call to guarantee complete visibility and proactively manage the network and services.

21CN will consolidate BT's complex network and systems infrastructure to ensure faster, more efficient and more cost-effective delivery of the next generation of converged services. Tektronix' network assurance capabilities will provide full support of legacy and next generation technologies to guarantee seamless management throughout the transition to 21CN.

"As BT works to simplify and streamline the creation, delivery and operations of existing and new services, technology from Tektronix will help to support the migration to 21CN," said Kevin Simmons, head of network assurance at BT. "The Tektronix solution is scaleable to cope with the large quantity of network elements 21CN will introduce, along with the increased customer traffic driven by the services."
