MCS Access Series appliances are designed to operate seamlessly with Visualware's MyConnection Server (MCS) enterprise Remote Testing Framework (RTF).
MCS delivers a centrally managed scalable remote testing solution that supports a wide range of platforms in a single architecture covering wired, wireless, 3G and 4G connections. This delivers a single solution that covers standard desktop and server platforms such as Windows, Linux and Solaris as well as mobile platforms such as iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Mobile etc.
The MCS RTF allows all types of connections to be monitored and tested over long or short periods of time delivering a wide range of critical performance indicators including:
• Data flow quality, throughput speed and capacity.
• Routing performance, peering efficiency and quality.
• VoIP and Video quality and performance.
• Availability and performance or application services such as DNS.
The MCS Access Series delivers an 'off platform' solution that eliminates interference of the host platform operating system, other coexisting applications that contend for connection resources and poor configuration options. The Access Series delivers an 'off platform' solution that is acutely accurate and designed to actively discover a wide range of connection quality problems as follows:
• Out of order packets.
• Lost, corrupt of duplicate packets.
• Windowing problems that occur in real time.
Low cost of ownership
The MCS Access Series is a low power, low heat solution. Simplicity of design combined with a secure architecture and low day to day running costs positions the MCS Access Series as a solution that easily adapts to small and large networks whether B2B, B2C, wired, wireless, 3G and 4G.
The MCS Access Series platform supports two model types:
• The AccessCT/CXT that delivers an automated quality testing client solution.
• The AccessCM/CXM that delivers both an automated quality testing client and a quality testing server in a single device.
The test portfolio of the MCS Access Series supports TCP throughput and quality, VoIP, Route and UDP capacity. The service portfolio of the MCS Access Series supports FTP, DNS HTTP and Ping.
The seamless integration of the MCS Access Series solutions into the existing MyConnection Server framework coupled with the secure architecture affords the customer a highly flexible and effective distribution/deployment model capable of addressing a wide range of connection testing requirements. MCS Access Series appliances can be deployed throughout the network as a client, as a server or as both client and server, delivering global end-to-end or local edge-to-edge testing services.
