Anue Systems ships OC-192 SONET "path layer" network emulator

September 7, 2005 Austin, TX -- Anue Systems, provider of next-generation SONET and Ethernet networking emulation devices, today announced availability of its newest network emulator, the HSPD192. The HSPD192 handles 9.953-Gbit/sec SONET OC-192 and SDH STM-64 data rates with the ability to impair and delay each individual channel or path independently.

Anue Network emulators are used to validate converged Ethernet and SONET/SDH carrier-grade network services, network equipment and applications in a lab test environment. Next-generation Ethernet-over-SONET aggregation solutions using virtual concatenation (VC), link capacity adjustment scheme (LCAS), and generic framing procedure (GFP) require robust testing of the effects of dynamic path level delays, bit errors, and other network faults. Anue Systems claims its network emulators allow this type of testing easily and accurately before new network equipment and new network services are deployed.

"Our 10 Gigabit Path Delay Emulator is already being used by one of the world's largest network equipment manufacturers," reports Hemi Thaker, CEO of Anue Systems. "They are testing their newest SONET MSPP that enables carrier-class Ethernet services to be delivered at the OC-192 optical transport rate. Of particular value in this situation is Anue's unique ability to simulate real world network effects like varying path layer delay, precise error injection, and programmable impairment modeling," he adds. "We are thrilled to see the positive impact this testing is having on our customer's product development; they are now able to ensure their product can withstand multiple path level network delays and impairments."

In addition to incorporating OC-192 path delay to its portfolio of multi-protocol network emulators, Anue Systems is also including new enhancements for advanced SONET/SDH and Ethernet testing. Such enhancements include advanced traffic monitoring and "H byte" processing.
