VeEX Inc. said it has made the first delivery of its OTUCn test feature for the Multi-Protocol Analyzer (MPA) test platform to a Tier 1 service provider in the Asia-Pacific region. Its OTUCn test feature for the MPA is the industry's first test instrument to support verification of next-generation OTUCn transport technology from OTUC1 to OTUC6 rates, up to 600G, VeEX asserts.
The company says its MPA provides network equipment manufacturers' (NEMs') R&D/SVT labs as well as service providers with an extensive toolset for verification of next-generation transport technologies, and simultaneous, multi-port, multi-protocol transport testing for Ethernet/IP, OTN and SONET/SDH, and Fibre Channel. According to VeEX, the MPM offers 10-Mbps to 400-Gbps interfaces, in a 1U rack-mount platform.
The MPA platform and its 10- and 100-Gbps modules have been proven with network equipment manufacturers worldwide (see "VeEX demos 400GbE module for Multi-Protocol Analyzer"). Test modules support the latest optical transceiver technologies, such as CFP8, CFP4, QSFP28/QSFP+, and SFP28/SFP+/SFP to provide R&D/SVT labs, production/manufacturing, and operators an all-in-one test feature, says the company.
VeEX said flexible test application modules and licensing options are available.
"We are excited to provide our NEM and service provider customers with the industry's first OTUC6 transport test solution," said Keith Cole, vice president of product marketing, NEMs for VeEX. "The MPA platform continues to provide early technology adopters with a trusted test and measurement environment to facilitate the design and deployment of next-generation packet optical services."
