JDSU adds optical transport network capabilities to 100GE test suite

June 18, 2010
JUNE 17, 2010 -- JDSU has added Optical Transport Network (OTN) capabilities to its 100GE test suite, which now offers advanced OTU3 (43GE) and OTU4 (112GE) test features to help transport Ethernet over longer distances for high-speed networks.

JUNE 17, 2010 -- JDSU has added Optical Transport Network (OTN) capabilities to its 100GE test suite, which now offers advanced OTU3 (43GE) and OTU4 (112GE) test features to help transport Ethernet over longer distances for high-speed networks.

Optical Transport Networks running on OTU3/4 add the framing, management layer, and forward error correction (FEC) on top of Ethernet that is needed for longer distance transmission and for OTN management in a carrier network.

JDSU’s OTU3/4 feature set: includes overhead and payload manipulation, as well as monitoring; complements the 40GE/100GE product lines to give complete test coverage; supports comprehensive test features for the new OTL (Optical Channel Transport Lane) layer; and aligns with JDSU’s existing OTU1/2/3 products, so customers can migrate to the faster speeds.

“With the rapid growth of broadband intensive applications, such as cloud computing, more service providers are looking to increase network capacity to 40G and 100G,” says Lars Friedrich, vice president and general manager in JDSU’s Communications Test and Measurement business segment. “The JDSU OTU3/4 feature set will help network equipment manufacturers seamlessly develop, test, and produce next-generation, long-distance transport products to address these critical issues.”
