To address the surge in deployment of Packet Transport Networks (PTN), JDSU has introduced an advanced level of analysis and verification for Multiprotocol Label Switching Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) services for its T-BERD/MTS-6000A and T-BERD/MTS-8000 Multi-Services Application Module (MSAM).

MPLS-TP, an emerging Layer 2 packet-based transport technology that directs and carries data from one network node to the next, is critical to the successful deployment of Carrier Ethernet services driven by high-bandwidth, high-performance applications such as LTE, Internet Protocol (IP) video, and mobile backhaul.

As service providers offer and install more packet-based MPLS-TP services for their customers, the JDSU software upgrade will provide them a method for verifying the installation of MPLS-TP services. The new JDSU test suite gives providers confidence that MPLS-TP services are delivered with true carrier-class QoS; with properly functioning end-to-end operations, administration, and maintenance (OAM); as well as protection switching.
