10 Gigabit Ethernet test solution provides complete performance-assurance testing

10 August 2005 Test & Measurement

EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering has launched a tester for 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) interfaces in optical networks. With the increasing deployments of 10 GigE interfaces in the network core, service providers can now use the FTB-8510G Packet Blazer to ensure quality of service (QoS) at such high transmission rates.

Test capabilities like packet-jitter, traffic generation and analysis, and RFC 2544 (a well-established testing methodology that includes throughput, latency and frame-loss measurements) are readily available to thoroughly test Ethernet-based, Internet Protocol networks. As a result, service providers can rest assured that delay-sensitive applications, such as voice-over-IP (VoIP) and video-on-demand (VoD), will meet prescribed service level agreements (SLAs), says the company.

Using a flexible configuration, the Packet Blazer can characterise local and/or wide area network physical interfaces with the same test module at all available wavelengths. All interfaces are field exchangeable and provide the suppleness to test any standard 10 Gigabit Ethernet access point in a network.

The FTB-8510G Packet Blazer, an interchangeable test module housed inside EXFO's widely deployed FTB-400 Universal Test System (UTS), is ideally suited for field, central office and carrier lab applications.
