14 November 2003 Utica, NY Lightwave --NetTest has introduced a new "jitter and wander" option for its SDH/SONET module, a component of the CMA 5000 Multi Layer Test Platform.
NetTest says the Optical Transport Analysis (OTA) module is the first field portable tester available to test jitter and wander up to 2.5 Gbits/sec. Thus, it enables network engineers to minimize the effects of recurrent phenomena such as network clock synchronization and wander and timing instabilities during the installation, commission, and maintenance of broadband networks.
In addition to testing jitter and wander from DS1/E1 up to OC-48/STM 16, the OTA module also provides automatic jitter tolerance measurements, jitter transfer measurements, and test reports. A user-friendly GUI ensures ease of use, resulting in time and cost savings.
