The need for speed

The need for speed 

In fact, when it comes to working, speed is a necessity these days. Competition is everywhere today, and in the business world is all about survival of the fittest. Network equipment manufacturers (NEMS) need to accelerate testing and streamline network operations because of this heat.

As a solution to this problem, EXFO has announced the extension of its FTB/IQS-85100G Packet Blazer Series, with its multi-stage ODU multiplexing and SONET/SDH client mappings over OTU4. This is an essential function needed by the NEMS to test the inter-carrier handoff in between the network element muxponder cards.

“EXFO has been a leading provider of high-speed multi-service testing solutions and continues to be committed to providing the best 100G test solutions for our lab customers,” Claudio Mazzuca, VP of EXFO’s Transport and Service Assurance Division said in a press release. “Because our customers are under pressure to deliver their services faster and more reliably, we are more determined than ever to provide our customers with value-added test solutions to help them meet these challenges,” Mazzuca added.

The series also delivers SONET/SDH client mapping into OTN containers. This new feature enables faster validation of the lower speed Ethernet-based interface.

EXFO also offers FTB/IQS-88100NGE which is the only 10M to 100G test module available on the market, along with Fibre Channel test capabilities ranging from 1X to 10X.

Fibre Channel 16X is available immediately on FTB/IQS-8830NGE module.
