JDSU Adds 2.5/2.7G Jitter/Wander Test Solution

JDSU introduced a test solution for measuring 2.5/2.7G SONET/SDH jitter. Combining existing 2.5/2.7G optical and electrical interfaces with the new 2.5/2.7G jitter/wander feature, JDSU's ONT-506 and ONT-512 testers now provide physical layer jitter/wander testing from 155 Mbps up to 43 Gbps.

The 2.5/2.7G jitter/wander module for the ONT-506 and ONT-512 supports the research and development, service verification testing and production needs of network equipment manufacturers, as well as the equipment verification, installation and maintenance requirements of service providers.

JDSU said it significantly enhanced the ONT product line's intrinsic jitter performance in response to market demand for the accurate validation of very low-level jitter generation based on peak-to-peak and root mean square (RMS) jitter requirements. The enhancements reduce the need to retest marginal cases, resulting in lower costs and faster time-to-market.

Jitter and wander are disturbances in a high-speed network that affect reliability and service performance.
