Agilent Intros 10-Gig WAN Test Interface
The Agilent test module is compliant to the current IEEE 802.3ae 10GBASE-LW (or -EW) draft standard. It allows manufacturers to speed delivery of 10 GbE equipment that meets customer performance and reliability standards, while service providers and network operators can utilize the test solution to evaluate and select 10 GbE equipment for network use. Users of the Agilent test module can configure the interface for either OC-192c POS or 10 GbE WAN serial testing, eliminating the need to purchase additional hardware or software. Customers currently using Agilent OC-192 modules will be able to add 10 GbE WAN serial testing at no charge by simply downloading new firmware.
