JANUARY 17, 2007 - Broadband test equipment provider Innocor (search for Innocor) has announced the addition of 40- / 43-Gbit/sec test capabilities to its TestPoint product line. With the introduction of this new test module, the emerging data rates of 40 and 43 Gbits/sec are now supported in Innocor's modular platform. Additionally, the 40-Gbit/sec module is the industry's first OC-768 / STM-256 and OTU3 test interface specifically designed for manufacturing and system test applications, claims the company.
"The 40-Gbit/sec module is an important addition to our test solutions portfolio," contends Randy Gill, president of Innocor. "The strength of our automation capabilities, modular approach to port density, and pricing advantage uniquely positions Innocor to serve the 40G SONET/SDH and OTU3 manufacturing and system test markets," he says. "Our all-FPGA implementation and flexible hardware architecture will allow us to continue our tradition of adapting quickly to emerging protocols, line rate variations, and test scenarios, thereby delivering once again on the level of investment protection that our customers have come to expect from Innocor."
The new 40-Gbit/sec module is available in both the 3-slot TS-30 and 17-slot TS-170 chassis configurations. Innocor says its TestPoint family offers flexible and cost- effective telecom and datacom testing for manufacturing and R&D environments. The TestPoint modular platform provides versatility in configuring interface types, transmission rates, protocols, and port density.
