Digital Lightwave expands Fibre Channel test line

AUGUST 23, 2010 -- Digital Lightwave Inc. has expanded its Fibre Channel test options for the NIC Platform. The expansion enables support all optical Fibre Channel line rates from 1G to 10G within new or existing NIC products, Digital Lightwave says.

AUGUST 23, 2010 -- Digital Lightwave Inc. has expanded its Fibre Channel test options for the NIC Platform. The expansion enables support all optical Fibre Channel line rates from 1G to 10G within new or existing NIC products, Digital Lightwave says.

"We are excited to announce that the addition of the 8G and 10G Fibre Channel Test Options to the NIC product allows us to offer the NIC to any customer supporting any optical Fibre Channel circuits," said Tom Newhart, VP of sales. "This expansion of our Fibre Channel Test Options demonstrates our ongoing commitment to support the changing requirements of increasingly converged next-generation networks. We continue to enhance our product to make sure that it can support the very latest technologies. This development shows once again that we are committed to implement support for Ethernet, Fibre Channel, and any other technologies that are folded into the NGN network."

8G and 10G Fiber Channel interfaces will be available on Digital Lightwave's Multi-Service Analyzer series of modules (MSA 2020 and MSA 2030), which feature test options for SONET/SDH, OTN, Ethernet, Fibre Channel and NGN technologies such as virtual concatenation, GFP, and LCAS. The new options are backwards compatible with previously fielded NIC Platforms.

Digital Lightwave asserts its Fibre Channel test options support all aspects of node login, fabric login, and buffer-to-buffer flow control with configurable frame sizes, headers, and rates. Extensive non-intrusive performance monitoring provides insight into in-service Fibre Channel circuit performance. Traditional optical measurements such as measuring and generating line frequency offsets are also supported.
