GeoProbe® Network Assurance to Test KT's New Intelligent Network Services

Tektronix Communications, a leading worldwide provider of communications network management and diagnostics solutions, announced its GeoProbe® Network Assurance solution has been selected by Korea Telecom (KT), South Korea's top integrated multimedia service provider, to test the deployment of new call-related services on their intelligent network.

"In today's highly competitive market, our customers are demanding more personalized calling features that have forced us to better utilize our existing intelligent and SS7 networks," said Kyung Lim You, Manager, Advanced Technology, Korea Telecom. "Tektronix' GeoProbe provides the passive, non-intrusive monitoring system needed to test these new calling services without affecting the service performance of the intelligent network element. GeoProbe's analysis and troubleshooting capabilities also help ensure the quality of our new services as they are rolled out to our customers."

GeoProbe, part of Tektronix' industry-leading Unified Assurance™ suite of applications for management of next generation converged networks, will be used by KT to proactively monitor, manage, diagnose and troubleshoot issues before, during and after the launch of new services over their intelligent network. GeoProbe's real-time and historical multi-protocol call trace and online analytical processing report features will provide KT an end-to-end monitoring approach, allowing them to view multiple sessions in real-time.

"KT is an industry innovator in services they bring to market," said Doug Dickerson, Vice President, Products, Tektronix Communications. "We're pleased to work with KT to ensure their success, helping them deliver increased customer satisfaction and operational efficiency."
