VeEX® introduces industry's smallest multiservice, multitasking analyzer for 40/100G networks. UX400

VeEX, a global leader in Telecom and CATV test solutions, today announced the introduction of the new UX400 Universal Expert test platform.

Weighing less than 15 kg, the UX400 is the smallest multiservice transport test solution available – A fully configured instrument can test a multitude of client interfaces from T1/E1 all the way up to the latest high speed 40G and 100G network data speeds with battery autonomy and backup at all rates.

Dual and multi-port testing is possible for most signal types, either as a single module or when multiple modules of the same type are slotted into the scalable platform. Electrical interfaces support legacy PDH and copper based Ethernet testing, while industry standard field pluggable transceivers support an impressive list of optical signal types and protocols. Modules shipping initially will include 1G Ethernet, 10G SDH/SONET, 10G LAN/WAN Ethernet, 10G OTU2/OTU1e/2e OTN, 40G SDH/SONET, and 40/100G Ethernet test interfaces, all of which can be accommodated in a single platform simultaneously.

The platform's software architecture has been developed so that multiple users are able to access and operate different test modules at the same time, which is ideal for centrally managed test systems and lab/production environments where control, automation or scripting is often performed locally or remotely. Test modules can also operate in a standard 19" rack, when portability or battery operation is not needed.

The UX400 platform is not only about integrating the most commonly used client interfaces into a rugged, portable form factor. Newly ratified ITU-T and IEEE test methodologies ensure Carrier-grade Ethernet and Internet Protocol services are installed and maintained to demanding Service Level Agreements while new generation Mobile networks can be verified using an optional built-in Atomic clock which can be disciplined by a GPS signal prior to making synchronization sensitive measurements indoors or outdoors.
