Sunrise Telecom Adds OAM and MPLS-TP Test Capabilities

Sunrise Telecom has aded OAM (Operations, Administration and Management) and MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) capabilities to its RxT Smart Productivity Test Platform. The new features, which are integrated into the RxT 10GE module, enable service providers to successfully and efficiently deploy and maintain advanced Carrier Ethernet services such as LTE, IPTV and mobile backhaul.

The OAM features of the RxT 10GE include connectivity check messages, Ethernet loopback, and link trace generation and analysis. For testing cell site Ethernet backhaul and Ethernet business services, the RxT 10GE supports CFM testing based on IEEE 802.1ag and ITU Y.1731 standards.

The RxT 10GE also now features testing of MPLS-TP services, an emerging Layer 2 transport technology, to verify that MPLS-TP services are properly configured for end-to-end OAM. Customer and control plane data verification is seamlessly included in the RxT 10GE module which means MPLS-TP and SLA verification can be determined simultaneously, increasing the efficiency of both installation and network troubleshooting.
