Sunrise Telecom upgrades RxT Ethernet Service Activation Platform

March 22, 2013
Test and measurement instrument company Sunrise Telecom Inc. (OTC: SRTI) has added operations, administration, and management (OAM) and MPLS-TP capabilities to its RxT Smart Productivity Test Platform. Sunrise says the new features will help service providers deploy and maintain such Carrier Ethernet services as LTE, IPTV, and mobile backhaul.

Test and measurement instrument company Sunrise Telecom Inc. (OTC: SRTI) has added operations, administration, and management (OAM) and MPLS-TP capabilities to its RxT Smart Productivity Test Platform. Sunrise says the new features will help service providers deploy and maintain such Carrier Ethernet services as LTE, IPTV, and mobile backhaul.

Designed for technicians who provision and assure end-to-end connectivity fault management (CFM) of Ethernet circuits for business services, the OAM features of the RxT 10GE include connectivity check messages, Ethernet loopback, and link trace generation and analysis. For testing cell site Ethernet backhaul and Ethernet business services, the RxT 10GE supports CFM testing based on IEEE 802.1ag and ITU Y.1731 standards.

“Y.1731 is becoming the dominant OAM protocol, as it incorporates key features of the other protocols into one heterogeneous toolkit,” explained Ken Fridley, product marketing manager at Sunrise Telecom. “The ability of the RxT platform to test proper configuration of maintenance entities using the Y.1731 OAM protocol is critical for service providers because it simplifies the deployment of Ethernet WAN services, enables accurate deployment of service-level agreements (SLAs), provides end-to-end OAM test capabilities, supports a robust fault management toolkit, and provides valuable performance management tools.”

The RxT 10GE also will now test MPLS-TP services to verify they are properly configured for end-to-end OAM. Customer and control plane data verification is seamlessly included in the RxT 10GE module, Sunrise Telecom asserts, which means MPLS-TP and SLA verification can be determined simultaneously.
