EXFO extends 40G/100G OTN multiplexing test capabilities

Nov 28, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) -- EXFO Inc., a provider of next-generation test and service assurance solutions for wireline and wireless network operators and equipment manufacturers, has announced the extension of the 40G/100G optical transport network, or OTN, multiplexing test capabilities on its FTB/IQS 85100G Packet Blazer 40G/100G multiservice test modules.

These capabilities include a full spectrum of OTU4 (111.81 Gbit/s) single-stage multiplexing schemes, in addition to Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) and 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GigE) client mappings into 40G/100G optical-channel payload units (OPUs) as per ITU-T G.709 for breakthrough-level qualification of 40G/100G muxponders. These additional capabilities are available as software options for existing FTB/IQS-85100G Packet Blazer modules, thus maximizing customers' return on investment (ROI) without requiring any additional hardware.

EXFO's new 40G/100G multiplexing capability provides an in depth test suite for full simulation and analysis of GigE and 10 GigE real-life services, along with full access to control and monitoring of OTN overhead bytes, tandem-connection-monitoring (TCM) traces and forward error correction (FEC) algorithms. These functionalities ensure that all newly deployed 40G/100G muxponders are proven capable of handling the demanding services that will be placed on them in the future.

In addition to newly launched OTN testing capabilities, EXFO's FTB/IQS-85100G Packet Blazer modules now support 40GE/100GE service disruption time (SDT) measurement for validation of 40G/100G Ethernet network-failure recovery mechanisms, thereby ensuring the availability and reliability of high-speed services.

"Over the past few years, EXFO has been a leading provider of high-speed multiservice testing solutions, and the extension of our 40G/100G Ethernet and OTN test capabilities continues on that trend" said Claudio Mazzuca, Vice-President of EXFO's Transport and Service Assurance Division. "Our customers are under pressure to speed up their time-to-market, so we are now more determined than ever before to maintain our leadership position and align our development efforts in order to meet our customers' lab and field testing needs."
