JDSU Expands Carrier Ethernet Field Test Portfolio

JDSU released a new set of Ethernet OAM capabilities that enable technicians to verify Ethernet OAM features in a Carrier Ethernet network. Available for the JDSU T-BERD/MTS 6000A Multi Services Application Module (MSAM), T-BERD/MTS-8000 Transport Module, and HST-3000 Ethernet Service Interface Module (SIM), the new capabilities help carriers meet end-to-end service level agreements (SLAs) and deliver differentiated Ethernet services.

The new features include the addition of link layer OAM (IEEE 802.3ah, Ethernet first mile) and the service layer OAM (IEEE 802.1ag and ITU-T Y.1731) test features. JDSU Ethernet OAM features perform end-to-end testing including verification of connectivity check messages, Ethernet loopback and insertion/receipt of Ethernet AIS/RDI alarming. This helps technicians install and troubleshoot Carrier Ethernet circuits.
