VeEX™ adds overclocked ITU-T OTN test rates to TX300.
VeEX has enhanced the OTN test suite on the TX300 by adding Ethernet-over-Optical Transport Network (EoOTN) test capability for 10 Gbps networks. Overclocked OTU2 rates (OTU1e and OTU2e) as specified in ITU-T recommendations G.Sup43 are able to transport 10 Gigabit Ethernet LAN PHY from IP/Ethernet switches and routers at full line rate (10.3 Gbps). The new test capability on the TX300 supports internal generation and mapping of 10 GigE LAN traffic directly into OTU1e and OTU2e payloads on the unit so that network operators are able to perform the necessary analysis to ensure proper turn-up of OTN client signals and configuration of next generation OTN network elements.
