DECEMBER 9, 2009 -- EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc. (NASDAQ: EXFO, TSX: EXF) has launched the ETS-1000 Ethernet Analyzer. The test instrument is designed to enable easy and reliable turn-up and installation of carrier-grade Ethernet services over metro networks.

EXFO says the Ethernet analyzers’ feature set delivers the specific functionality and ease-of-use required by field technicians to meet increasingly demanding Ethernet network testing and compliance measurements, while achieving cost-optimized performance.

The ETS-1000 10-Mbps to 1GigE Ethernet analyzer supports two independent test ports. Technicians can transmit up to Layer 4 traffic, with fully configurable virtual LAN (VLAN), multiprotocol label switching (MPLS), and quality of service (QoS) parameters. EXFO says the ETS-1000 entry-level analyzer supports all of the necessary Ethernet/IP field testing capabilities including RFC 2544, bit-error rate, packet jitter, and multi-stream generation and analysis.

Also being introduced is the ETS-1000L, a dedicated handheld Ethernet loopback device designed to support simple user configuration for full wire-speed testing, from Layer 1 through 4. Both the ETS-1000 and ETS-1000L are fully interoperable with all EXFO Ethernet products.

“Proper assessment of carrier-grade Ethernet services is essential to ensure both quality and performance,” said Étienne Gagnon, EXFO’s vice-president of product development and marketing. “The addition of the ETS-1000 further enhances our leading Ethernet portfolio, which provides our customers a broad range of tools to address and maximize the efficiency of their installation and turn-up testing processes.”
