RFC2544 and ITU-T Y.1564 tests though necessary, are not sufficient to ensure service verification in CE networks.
Often Carrier Ethernet service providers rely on either ITU-T Y.1564 or RFC2544 tests, to check network integrity before service turn-up. However, experience shows that there are a number of other problems that could potentially lie undetected until customers start using the network. Configuration mismatches and equipment interoperability issues can result in a number of problems relating to VLANs, CoS, burst handling, security, etc.
The cost and effort of truck rolls for resolution of these issues tend to be high. The resulting decline in customer loyalty due to service disruptions is obvious.
Veryx SAMTEST provides a comprehensive combination of tests that cover ITU-T Y.1564, MEF CE 2.0, ITU-T Y.1731 and other proprietary tests for quick and thorough verification of circuits before turn-up. Thus, service providers can be confident of the integrity of their networks with SAMTEST.
SAMTEST provides the efficiency and capability required by service providers to effectively roll-out and manage their Carrier Ethernet network services such as Business Services and Mobile backhaul. SAMTEST also enables service provider to benchmark specific sections of Access, Metro and Core networks and expedites end-to-end trouble shooting.
Veryx SAMTEST Service Assurance solution consists of a central controller and distributed probes:
SAMTEST Controller is a centralized controller software that co-ordinates with Veryx Test Probes to initiate tests, gather statistics and generate reports. The SAMTEST controller includes SAMTEST Framework and pre-built test scenarios for automated service activation and trouble shooting of various Ethernet Service types.

Veryx SAMTEST Probes can generate Ethernet traffic of up to 1G to enable active testing of Service Attributes and SLAs as initiated by the SAMTEST controller. The traffic generated by SAMTEST probes can be received at the other end by a peer SAMTEST probe or looped back by a peer access device, to perform the required measurements.
Veryx SAMTEST provides Carrier Ethernet Service Providers and automated Service Activation and Diagnostics for managing Carrier Ethernet based Network service types such as E-line, E-LAN, E-Tree and E-Access.
SERVICE ACTIVATION: Veryx SAMTEST provides automated service turn-up testing and generates birth certificate reports based on pre-built standards based test scenarios covering 802.1 ag, Y.1731, RFC 2544, Y.1564, MEF 9, MEF 14 and CE 2.0.
TROUBLESHOOTING: Veryx SAMTEST quickly isolates connectivity, SLA and MEF attributes related issues. SAMTEST comes with pre-built test scenarios specifically to facilitate diagnostics.
