VeEX successfully demonstrates interoperability of Mobile Backhaul test solution.

VeEX Inc., a global leader in Telecom and CATV test solutions, recently participated in the multi-vendor Interoperability Showcase organized by the European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC). The test event focused on the latest innovations in IPv6 Migration, Mobile Backhaul Transport and Synchronization, MPLS-TP Fault Management, and Performance Monitoring.

Along with 13 other equipment vendors, extensive tests were conducted in January at EANTC's lab in Berlin, Germany. Results of the tests were showcased last week at the VeEX and EANTC booths at the MPLS & Ethernet World Congress in Paris, France.

VeEX TX130M successfully completed tests showcasing Y.1731 Ethernet OAM Performance Monitoring as well as 1588v2 synchronization interoperability with multiple vendors.

As more and more importance is given to end-to-end OAM visibility for carrier Ethernet services, the ITU-T Y.1731 protocol is an important tool providing Fault Management and Performance Monitoring capabilities. The VeEX TX130M enables service providers to test Y.1731 network deployments and provides performance monitoring metrics like delay and jitter.

In the area of mobile backhaul synchronization, the VeEX TX130M demonstrated interoperability with multiple vendors in 1588v2 boundary clock and transparent clock testing scenarios. The TX130M capabilities of slave synchronization simultaneous with Ethernet test traffic generation and measurement were used in the transparent clock scenario. This represents a critical step in the validation of real life PTP deployments, where data traffic shares bandwidth with synchronization messages.

For detailed information on the test results, a white paper is available for download on the EANTC website.

About VeEX TX130M

The VeEX TX130M is a full-featured test solution to validate next generation packet synchronization technologies implemented in Mobile Backhaul and Carrier Ethernet networks. The unit is capable of emulating both Master and Slave clocks according to ITU-T G.8261 SyncE and IEEE 1588v2 standards, which is particularly useful for carriers since either or one or both of these protocols can be implemented in the mobile network or cell site depending on deployment scenario. Mobile operators in the process of migrating their networks from legacy TDM to Packet-based backhaul will benefit from the range of DSn/PDH and Ethernet interfaces and powerful test features available on the TX130M tester.
