MAY 7, 2009 -- EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc. (search Lightwave for EXFO) has launched the RTU-310 (1 Gbps) and RTU-310G (10 Gbps) IP Service Test Heads to address the growing demand for centralized IP/Ethernet testing solutions in mobile switch centers (MSCs). The RTU-310x series is designed to seamlessly interoperate with EXFO's portfolio of portable Ethernet field testers and the BrixNGN network monitoring system for cost-efficient and comprehensive end-to-end testing, turn-up, and troubleshooting of Ethernet services.
The RTU-310x test heads leverage the performance assurance testing capabilities of the portable FTB-8510B and FTB-8510G Packet Blazer Ethernet field testers. The RTU-310x series is a carrier-class, rackmount offering that facilitates the integration of end-to-end, bidirectional Ethernet testing, including RFC 2544, and advanced wire-speed traffic analysis into the central office environment, enabling carriers to increase technician autonomy and productivity with solo control of remote and local test devices for streamlined, efficient end-to-end testing.
The RTU-310x series can optionally be integrated into the BrixNGN Carrier Ethernet network monitoring offerings to enable service providers to continuously collect, correlate, analyze, and visualize QoS and QoE data from the network core to the customer endpoint at full line rate testing speeds. This data enables accurate capacity planning and service turn-up verification, as well as the rapid identification, diagnosis, and resolution of network and service issues before customers are affectedâ��thereby guaranteeing performance and quality, EXFO asserts.
