Telecom Lead America: JDSU has introduced PacketPortal CONNECT, a partner program for channel partners, system integrators, and application developers.
The test and measurement solutions provider said the new partner program is aimed expanding PacketPortal applications used by service providers, enterprise customers and network equipment manufacturers.
PacketPortal is designed to capture network intelligence from previously inaccessible edge devices such as mobile base stations, switches and routers, and remote enterprise office equipment.
Moreover, PacketPortal CONNECT links together partners across the communications industry in an ecosystem focused on delivering superior applications, unmatched domain and solution expertise, and ongoing sales and marketing support.
