SUWANEE, GA, June 21 - Telchemy,® Incorporated, the global leader in Voice over IP (VoIP) Fault and Performance Management technology, announced that Acterna, the leader in test and management solutions for consumer and business broadband communications, has expanded their use of Telchemy's VQmon®/SA VoIP analysis and call quality monitoring technology.

The technology will be integrated into Acterna's market leading DA-3600A and DA-3400 Data Network Analyzers, PVA-1000 VoIP Analyzer, Digital Services Activation Meter (DSAM) and Remote Services Activation Meter (RSAM). For service providers and enterprises, Acterna's VoIP Analysis Software provides a comprehensive suite of problem-solving capabilities necessary to deploy, troubleshoot and maintain today's complex VoIP networks.

The DSAM and RSAM are part of Acterna's Application-Aware™ suite of products that provide cable operators with tools that test complete digital and IP services with simplicity, flexibility and ease. Adding VoIP support to these leading edge products make them more powerful than ever - VoIP deployment for network operators becomes increasingly easier to manage with the ability to place and listen to a live call, measuring the quality of the user-experience before going live to the customer.

"We are very pleased to extend our relationship with Acterna, the market leader in communications test equipment." said Alan Clark, President and CEO of Telchemy, Incorporated. "By integrating VQmon/SA into its key cable and telecommunications products, Acterna is bringing the industry standard for VoIP performance monitoring to a broad range of customers."

Network operators and system administrators use Telchemy's VQmon technology to detect, monitor and resolve call quality and network related problems for networked multi-media services, including Voice and Video over IP, IP Centrex, 3G Cellular, Voice over WLAN, and streaming audio/video. VQmon provides listening and conversational call quality metrics in both R factor and MOS formats as well as detailed diagnostic information, giving network managers both high level metrics and the ability to drill down to identify specific problems. VQmon is the first VoIP Performance Management software to support the new VoIP management protocols, providing the essential metrics for the International Engineering Task Force (IETF) RFC 3611 (RTCP XR) media path reporting protocol and the QoS reporting protocols for SIP, H.323, MGCP and Megaco.
