JDSU (NASDAQ: JDSU) has introduced what it bills as the first Optical Transport Network (OTN) multichannel test solution for 10G, 40G and 100G networks. The company says the multichannel test option enables service providers to accelerate the development and deployment of high-speed OTN-based transport and switching equipment for more cost-effective transmission of video and other high-bandwidth traffic.
“The rapidly growing volume of unpredictable, video-driven traffic has created new risks to service quality and a growing need for more cost-effective transmission and switching technologies like OTN,” said Dr. Lars Friedrich, vice president and general manager, JDSU Communications Test and Measurement business segment. “JDSU’s new multichannel test solution accelerates development of OTN-based systems and enables service providers to have greater confidence in the reliability of their networks.”
The OTN multichannel option is provided from the company’s ONT product line. The advanced multichannel, multi-port architecture makes the ONT an ideal tool for the development and production of high-speed network systems, contends the company. The new feature complements JDSU’s portfolio of multichannel transmission test solutions which started with the introduction of the industry’s first SDH/SONET multichannel tester ten years ago.
JDSU will be highlighting its test and measurement solutions at the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC), booth #1622, September 18-22, 2011, in Geneva, Switzerland.
