EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering has introduced a software suite that brings new functionalities to the FTB-8140 Transport Blazer 40/43 Gigabit SONET/SDH/OTN Test Module, which now supports full ODU multiplexing capability as well as independent transmission/reception settings.

Service providers can now test ODU1 and ODU2 containers within the OTU3 signal. Furthermore, SONET/SDH payloads as well as 10 Gigabit Ethernet can be mapped into the ODU1 or ODU2 containers, ensuring that tests reflect more real-life testing parameters. In addition to the ODU multiplexing functionality, the FTB-8140 Transport Blazer now also supports independent transmission/reception settings, enabling service providers to properly qualify and validate network elements at installation.
