Touchstone and Apposite Verify the Accuracy of Each Other’s Technologies


LOS ANGELES, CA and HATFIELD, PA (January 23, 2013)Apposite® Technologies the leader in easy-to-use, enterprise-class network emulation products, and Touchstone Technologies, an award-winning IP communications test and measurement company, have collaborated to verify the accuracy of each other’s products and their ability to generate and detect network impairments and defects.

In the test, Touchstone verified the capabilities of Apposite’s Netropy® series network impairment generators to create a wide array of problems that impair real time communications networks. Touchstone used their WinEyeQ™ VoIP and Video analysis solution as well as their IntelliMarc™ distributed monitoring solution to identify and report on the detected anomalies. Simulations included packet loss, path delay, excessive jitter, and congestion and packet ordering problems.

Mark Stacy, Touchstone’s CTO said: “Touchstone and Apposite have a symbiotic relationship in the sense that Apposite is an industry standard in network impairment simulation and likewise, Touchstone aspires to be the de facto standard for detecting problems that afflict real time communication networks. Apposite’s products enable us to ensure that we accurately detect and report on issues without triggering false alarms.”
