MILPITAS, Calif., June 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- JDSU today introduced RoamerNet MaxG Service, a global managed service for mobile operators that speeds the testing of high-bandwidth video and data applications and is compatible with emerging 4G/LTE technology.  JDSU will display its leading communications test and measurement solutions, including RoamerNet MaxG, at CommunicAsia June 15-18 in Singapore at booth # 4K3-07.

With a global footprint in more than 70 countries, JDSU's RoamerNet supports testing of advanced roaming services including video telephony and video streaming as well as existing tests for voice, data and Simple Messaging Service (SMS).  The managed service also supports the testing of web applications, downloads and content verification to give mobile operators the tools to deliver the highest quality and reliability of today's popular broadband applications.

"Mobile operators need to continue managing the critical revenue streams they derive from roaming customers," said David Opsahl, vice president in JDSU's Communications Test and Measurement business segment.  "As the mobile customer base moves beyond simple voice roaming to advanced data services and video communications, our RoamerNet MaxG managed service addresses this need head-on."

JDSU's RoamerNet MaxG enables operators to validate roaming Service Level Agreements and investigate any performance issues while assuring continued revenue streams from roaming.  The service offers higher test throughput and capacity, improved reporting, dashboards and diagnostics. With an industry-standard architectural approach, JDSU'S RoamerNet MaxG also gives operators a clear path to 4G/LTE.  

Structured as a managed service, JDSU RoamerNet MaxG also enables operators to eliminate the capex, staffing costs, expertise and time-to-market delays experienced by operators who choose to set up their own monitoring infrastructure. JDSU operates the entire service on the customer's behalf including all test configuration, management and analysis, while providing report visibility via secure, web-based portal access.
