JDSU today announced J-Proof testing for its T-BERD/MTS transport network test products, the T-BERD/MTS-6000A Multi-Services Application Module and T-BERD/MTS-8000 Transport Module. J-Proof testing is designed to allow carriers to ensure the expedient turn-up of carrier-grade Ethernet circuits with QoS and SLAs in environments that employ third-party networks.

Intended for technicians who troubleshoot and turn-up end-to-end Ethernet circuits, JDSU’s J-Proof testing is designed to verify transparent forwarding of Ethernet frames over switched Ethernet networks. When Ethernet passes over switched Ethernet networks, improperly configured network elements (routers, switches, etc.) can filter or even drop critical network transmissions, causing hours of troubleshooting and turn-up delays. Delays are further complicated when they occur over third-party networks. J-Proof is designed to let carriers test that their Ethernet traffic passes through networks end-to-end – including third-party networks.

Features in the J-proof Test Option include Ethernet frame transparency testing over VLAN and Q-in-Q; VLAN Priority setting to ensure control messages do not time out or get dropped; Cisco Proprietary Protocol Test to verify commonly-used Cisco VTP and CDP end-to-end; and GARP and STP tests that confirm registration and topology protocols. The user interface provides both Pass/Fail and granular results.
