Anritsu Adds OTU4 Mapping to 40/100G Ethernet Analyzer

Anritsu has added an OTU4 mapping option for its MD1260A 40/100G Ethernet Analyzer. This enables the instrument to conduct analysis for 40GE, 100GE, OTU3 and OTU4, providing manufacturers of telecommunications and transport equipment, as well as network operators with a single-instrument solution that can assure the quality of high-speed networks.

The new option allows the MD1260A to support GMP (Generic Mapping Procedure) mapping with Ethernet client signals at OTU4 rates for Gigabit Ethernet, 10GE and 100GE client signal types to evaluate if GMP mapping is being conducted properly. It also supports all error and alarm testing at OTU, ODU, GMP, GFP-T and client layers, as well as has a client-signal adjustable clock offset at OTN frame payload.

The new OTU4 mapping option has a U.S. price of $6,242. The base MD1260A analyzer is $124,844.
