Brix Networks Issued Patent By U.S. Patent And Trademark Office


Converged Service Assurance Company’s Hardware Time-stamping Method
Delivers Critical Quality Metrics To Assure Next-Generation Services

Thursday, December 14, 2006 - CHELMSFORD, Mass. — Brix Networks, the leading provider of converged service assurance solutions, announced today it has been issued a patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the company’s hardware time-stamping method.

U. S. Patent No. 7,058,020 covers a technique for time-stamping a data packet, which permits the measurement of network characteristics -- such as one-way and round-trip latency and jitter -- to within one microsecond, and eliminates the uncertainties typically associated with software processing and system load.

Hardware time-stamping guarantees highly accurate and scalable quality of service measurements that are required for assuring today’s real-time, revenue-generating Internet Protocol (IP) services, such as Voice over IP (VoIP) and IP television (IPTV). All members of the Brix family of hardware Verifiers can time-stamp incoming, outgoing, and monitored packets.

According to Kaynam Hedayat, vice president, engineering, and CTO at Brix Networks, who, along with Steve DesRochers, the company’s vice president, solutions, is one of the holders of the patent, “The significance of our patented hardware time-stamping technology is that it gives our customers peace of mind regarding the accuracy and reliability of their quality test results, and that they precisely reflect the true behavior of their networks. By balancing innovation and execution, we are delivering advanced converged service assurance solutions to our customers around the world.”
