JDSU Adds IPv6 Features to Handheld Field Tester

JDSU has enhanced its HST-3000 handheld services tester with new features to support the rollout of IPv6. The new capabilities provide the ability to test IPv6 connectivity, throughput, latency and packet jitter. Tests supported include verification of stateless or stateful address auto-configuration; IPv6 ping; traffic generation; and the ability to receive, filter and report IPv4 or IPv6 traffic.

JDSU said the upgrade to its HST Ethernet module includes an improved graphical interface (GUI) with fewer "button pushes" that enables users with limited test experience to conduct simplified pass/fail analysis. The upgrade also offers support for MPLS, Q-in-Q (also known as VLAN stacking), Layer 4 (TCP/UDP) throughput testing, and PPPoE. Language support is available in simplified Chinese, German, Spanish, French, and Turkish.
