ODU0 and ODUFlex capabilities added to JDSU ONT test tool

JULY 6, 2010 - JDSU has added ODU0 and ODUFlex testing capabilities to the ONT test system, which offers an optical transport network (OTN) feature set and interfaces from OTU1 (2.7G) to OTU4 (111.8G).

JULY 6, 2010 - JDSU has added ODU0 and ODUFlex testing capabilities to the ONT test system, which offers an optical transport network (OTN) feature set and interfaces from OTU1 (2.7G) to OTU4 (111.8G).

These enhancements enable implementation of a two-layer network approach with a packet layer based on Ethernet/IP and a transport layer based on OTN.

JDSU ODU0 and ODUFlex ONT test highlights include:
• the first 2.7G and 10.7G test tools capable of testing both ODU0 and ODUFlex technologies that are necessary for transporting Ethernet in Core Networks.
• ODU0 which makes current OTN networks compatible with a fast transparent Ethernet service while ODUFlex helps networks seamlessly scale to adjust to transporting different types of services and accommodating different bandwidth needs.
• single stage (rates include ODU0 and OTU2) and dual stage (rates include ODU0, ODU1 and OTU2) offerings to meet the standards of today and tomorrow and the migration path to get there.

The new features assist development, system verification, and production engineers in testing new structures for function and performance. From a topology view, testing the internal network element functions, such as OTN multiplexing and service mapping, is also available inside the ODU structures.
