4/29/2003 - Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) announced a new suite of network assessment services for IP telephony and IP data applications. These services enable service providers and enterprise network operators reduce their IT costs, maximize network performance and minimize the risk associated with new service deployment.
Many enterprise customers are under pressure to reduce their IT costs and are turning to integrated IP voice and data services. The challenge is to deploy services quickly and accurately in order to provide high voice quality, solid data integrity and good overall network performance. Network assessments for IP telephony and IP data applications enable customers to gain access to the industry's leading network test tools without the upfront capital expense. Customers also gain access to expertise, which eliminates the need to commit scarce IT employees to weeks of training before the new network services are even evaluated.
Agilent's new suite of services includes LAN and WAN analysis, voice quality assurance, traffic simulation and analog signal analysis. The service suite leverages Agilent's expertise in both voice and data networking as well as Agilent's family of protocol analyzers, voice quality products and signal analysis tools to help customers deploy their network services quickly.
Steps that can be included in this suite of services include the following:
"Network assessments for IP telephony and IP data applications reduce problems with deployment and wasted investment through proof-of-concept testing and live performance verification," said Lynne Camp, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Communications Test Solutions Division. "We offer experience and expertise in both voice and data communications. We provide customers with an objective view of their network performance and empower our customers to meet their objectives, no matter which equipment vendor, service provider or IT consultants they hire."

The network assessment services are currently available at a starting price of $6,000 for a basic one-day assessment. Further information is available by calling +1 303 662 2062 or on the Web at www.agilent.com/comms/assess.
