UNH-IOL Uses TraceSpan’s D-CABLE Xpert(TM) for IPv6 Validation of DOCSIS 3.0 eRouters

June 25, 2013

UNH-IOL and TraceSpan expand their partnership to new areas

RA’ANANA, Israel, June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

TraceSpan Communications [http://www.tracespan.com ], a leader in broadband analysis
and monitoring solutions, announced today the expansion of the company’s partnership with
the UNH-IOL to IPv6 validation of DOCSIS 3.0 eRouters. In the frame of this partnership
the UNH-IOL will use TraceSpan’s D-CABLE Xpert(TM) multi-layer analyzer as part of their
IPv6 test bench solutions.

D-CABLE Xpert is a powerful protocol analyzer which provides full visibility into the
DOCSIS network and equipment, including detailed network topology and complete and
accurate analysis for DOCSIS product performance, standard compliance and
interoperability. D-CABLE Xpert captures and analyzes the signals without using any DOCSIS
chipset and has no effect on the data transfer between the CMTS and the CMs. With its
unique multi-layer probing capability, it provides comprehensive DOCSIS 3.0 PHY and MAC
layer analysis as well as embeded analysis of upper layer protocols, including Ethernet,
IPv4, IPv6, TCP, UDP, IGMP, DHCP, HTTP and various others.

The UNH-IOL is an independent provider of broad-based testing and standards
conformance services for the networking industry. The partnership between UNH-IOL and
TraceSpan, first announced in February last year, was initially focused on building a
world class GPON test environment using TraceSpan’s GPON Xpert analyzer and OLT emulator.
GPON Xpert has since then been used extensively by UNH-IOL and its customers and has
proved to add significant value in the testing proccess.

“As the UNH-IOL expands its IPv6 Ready Logo services, we identified the need for a
multi-layer DOCSIS analyzer for our test environment,” said Timothy Winters, UNH-IOL IPv6
Consortium Manager. “As a world-recognized test lab and the leading IPv6 Ready Logo test
lab in North America, we found TraceSpan’s D-CABLE Xpert as a great fit in our testing
environment, which will further improve the IPv6 testing available at the UNH-IOL”.

“We are proud to expand our partnership with the UNH-IOL to IPv6 certification and add
our D-CABLE Xpert to their testing environment ,” said Dr. Hanan Herzberg, TraceSpan
founder and CEO. “We are confident that this will help both organizations maintain their
leadership in IPv6 and DOCSIS testing as it did in the GPON testing market.”

Since its launch in late 2011, D-CABLE Xpert received excellent market acceptance and
has been purchased by a number of MSOs and manufacturers. In the last few months a number
of new customers have been added to this list, following their evaluation and comparison
of different solutions in the market. This comes on top of TraceSpan’s proven leadership
in the broadband access testing market, with hundreds of customers in the Americas,
Europe, Asia and the Pacific region.
