JDSU adds first integrated 4G and 10G Fibre Channel test functionality

6 March 2008

Comtest has announced that JDSU has introduced a field solution to combine 4G and 10G Fibre Channel test support with traditional transport test capabilities such as SONET/SDH, Ethernet and OTN. Available for the T-BERD/MTS-8000 Transport module, the new functionality is engineered to address the growing demands for installation and troubleshooting of Fibre Channel services in Metro networks.
In addition to the Fibre Channel functionality, new features in this release include support for Layer 4 TCP simulation for troubleshooting next-generation Ethernet/IP services, Ethernet client testing capability for 11.05 and 11.1 Gbps OTN networks, and support for the installation and troubleshooting of IPTV networks. Support for IPTV applications will include monitoring and analysing MPEG-2 streams, accessing them via Internet Group Multicast Protocol (IGMP) and performing true QoS analysis; including the ability to verify packet loss, packet jitter, media delivery index (MDI), distance error and period errors, program clock reference (PCR) jitter, TR 101 290-based statistics and analyse programs and their packet IDs (PIDs) per stream.
JDSU offers a single-source Metro Ethernet test portfolio that facilitates analysis of all seven layers of Metro Ethernet services - the Metro Ethernet deployment lifecycle that includes lab and service verification testing. This unique portfolio of broadband-enabling test solutions includes JDSU's T-BERD/MTS-8000, NetComplete for Metro Ethernet (including the QT-600), HST-3000, DA-3400/3600, SmartClass Ethernet, FST-2802, ONT and TestPoint product lines. The JDSU portfolio provides an integrated, end-to-end approach to testing Metro Ethernet products and services, including development and production, installation and maintenance, troubleshooting and overall service assurance.
