JDSU announced that its Ethernet test lines now include enhanced, asymmetrical RFC2544 test features.

These features include:

  • Test packet jitter within the RFC2544 script.
  • Test links with different upstream and downstream guaranteed rates.
  • Concurrent throughput, latency, and packet jitter tests.
  • Measurement of all typical parameters from the metro core to the customer premises (with HST-3000).

In addition, JDSU J-QuickCheck, a pre-RFC2544 test, ensures that no time is wasted while testing a circuit. It sends a short traffic burst to the far end to ensure end-to-end connectivity before starting the RFC2544 test.

The benefit: technicians no longer need to start a longer-term test only to find that the circuit was not up and that throughput, packet loss and latency could not be measured.

JDSU offers a single-source Carrier Ethernet test portfolio that facilitates analysis of all seven layers of next-generation IP networks.  The portfolio offers service providers and NEMs the confidence to successfully build, deploy, and manage Carrier Ethernet and Business-Class solutions.
