    DetailsThe Next Step in SONET/SDH Testing

    The increased demand for data and video services continues to drive the need for more cost-effective networks. Technologies such as next-generation SONET/SDH are becoming more important to service providers as they offer an economical means of introducing new revenue-generating, Ethernet-based transport services on existing SONET/SDH infrastructures. In addition, implementation of OTN(ITU-T G.709) will also help reduce the cost of operating DWDM networks by achieving higher transmission quality with longer optical links through the use of forward error correction (FEC).

    This opportunity creates the need for test solutions that can help ensure proper deployment, operation and maintenance of standard SONET/SDH, OTN and new Ethernet-based transport networks.

    EXFO's FTB-8120 (2.5/2.7 Gbit/s) Transport Blazer test module provides advanced DSn/PDH, SONET/SDH, next-generation SONET/SDH and OTN test functions in a single unit, eliminating the need for multiple purpose-built test platforms when commissioning or troubleshooting SONET/SDH, OTN and new data-aware SONET/SDH circuits.

    SONET/SDH Service Turn-Up and Troubleshooting

    The FTB-8120 Transport Blazer module offers a wide range of SONET/SDH test functions, allowing users to perform tests ranging from simple bit-error-rate (BER) testing to advanced characterization and troubleshooting procedures. These functions include:

    • High-order mappings: STS-1/3c and AU-3
    • Low-order mappings: VT1.5/2/6, TU-11/12/2/3
    • Section/RS, Line/MS, high-order and low-order path overhead manipulation and monitoring
    • Section/RS, Line/MS, high-order and low-order path alarm/error generation and monitoring
    • High-order and low-order pointer generation and monitoring
    • K1/K2 OH byte capture
    • Tandem connection monitoring
    • Performance monitoring: G.821, G.826, G.828, G.829, M.2100, M.2101

    Optical Transport Network Testing

    OTN as per ITU-T G.709 has recently introduced two new concepts: ODU0 and ODUflex. ODU0 is a new virtual container of 1.25 Gbit/s bandwidth specifically defined for efficiently mapping Gigabit Ethernet services over OTN. As for ODUflex, it is the most efficient sub-wavelength bandwidth management capability for transport line rates of 10 Gbit/s, 40 Gbit/s and upcoming 100 Gbit/s. ODUflex allows providers to interconnect routers in ways that enable efficient bandwidth growth in steps of 1.25 Gbit/s, eliminating the need to allocate a full fixed-rate ODU container to each connection and allowing service providers to transport efficiently and seamlessly across lower-cost optical infrastructures.

    With OTN deployments rapidly increasing, so does the need for smaller field-oriented OTN test equipment. The FTB-8120 Transport Blazer module offers OTN test capabilities for verifying compliancy with ITU-T G.709 standards. The tests include:

    • OTU1 (2.7 Gbit/s) bit rate
    • ODU0 (1.25 Gbit/s) container with Gigabit Ethernet and SONET/SDH client signals mapping
    • ODUflex with Ethernet client signal mapping
    • Synchronous mapping of SONET/SDH signals within OTN as well as synchronous and asynchronous demapping
    • Forward error correction (FEC) testing
    • Multichannel SDT measurements and real-time error/alarm monitoring for all ODU0 channels
    • Round-trip delay (RTD) measurements
    • OTU, ODU, OPU overhead manipulation and monitoring
    • OTU, ODU (including ODU TCM), OPU layer alarms/errors generation and analysis
    • OTU, ODU (including ODU TCM) trace messages
    • ODU multiplexing alarm-generation and analysis
    • Through mode analysis
    • Intrusive Through mode
     Discovery and Monitoring

    EXFO’s FTB-8120 Transport Blazer supports a unique feature called SmartMode. This provides users with full visibility of all high-order (STS/AU) and low-order (VT/TU) mixed mappings within the incoming SONET/SDH and OTN test signal.

    SmartMode automatically discovers the signal structure of the OC-n/STM-n line including mixed mappings and virtual concatenation (VCAT) members. In addition to this in-depth multichannel visibility, SmartMode performs real-time monitoring of all discovered high-order paths and user selected low-order paths simultaneously, providing users with the industry’s most powerful SONET/SDH multichannel monitoring and troubleshooting solution. Real-time monitoring allows users to easily isolate network faults, saving valuable time and minimizing service disruption. SmartMode also provides one-touch test case start, allowing users to quickly configure a desired test path.

    Unsurpassed Configuration and Operational Flexibility

    The FTB-8120 Transport Blazer module shares a unique architecture that allows them to be supported and interchangeable on the FTB-500 Platform and the FTB-200 Compact Platform. This cross-platform support provides users with added flexibility by enabling them to select the appropriate platform that suits their testing needs. EXFO is the first and only test solution provider to offer this versatility, delivering single to multi-application test solutions with the same hardware module, which in turn dramatically reduces capital expenditures.

    Once inserted into the FTB-200, the FTB-8120 Transport Blazer module delivers DSn/PDH, SONET/SDH and OTN test functions in a small, lightweight platform, ideal for field technicians’ installation and commissioning needs. When combined with the FTB-200’s optional integrated high-precision power meter, visual fault locator and fiber scope, this solution provides all the critical test tools required for day-to-day activities, eliminating the need to carry and manage multiple test sets.

    Using the FTB-500 platform provides users with an all-in-one solution supporting a mix of SONET/SDH, OTN, Ethernet, Fibre Channel and optical-layer test modules, making it the industry’s first truly integrated network testing platform. This modularity enables users to upgrade their systems in the field according to their testing needs. This multitechnology test platform is the ideal solution for field, central office and lab applications.

    Product Option Flexibility

    The Transport Blazer series provides customers with the flexibility to purchase SONET/SDH-only configurations and upgrade to next-generation SONET/SDH and/or OTN test functions to meet evolving needs. This avoids having to perform complete hardware and/or platform retrofits, therefore significantly decreasing capital and training expenses.

    Remote Management

    Through the optional Visual Guardian Lite™ management software, the FTB-8120 Transport Blazer module allows users to perform remote testing and data analysis, as well as remote monitoring via standard Ethernet.

    Automated Test Scripting

    The FTB-8120 Transport Blazer module comse with a built-in macro recorder allowing users to easily record their test actions and automatically create test scripts. This also allows them to build standard test routines that can be easily accessed and run by field technicians with little or no manual intervention.
