ROCKVILLE, Md. -- Spirent Communications(tm), a wholly owned business group of Spirent plc (LSE: SPT, NYSE: SPM), today launched the first totally integrated solution with SONET framing and jitter testing for 40 Gigabit (40G) electrical and optical devices. The OTA-4400 will be demonstrated live at the Optical Fiber Communications (OFC) Conference in Anaheim, Calif., from March 19-21 in booth #2087. The introduction of Spirent's OTA-4400 builds on Spirent's award-winning optical test solutions, which provide unique multi-channel testing of the optical data plane as well as protocol performance/conformance testing of the optical control plane. With true, physical layer SONET framing and jitter testing, Spirent is poised to capture a leading share of the emerging 40G test market. "Unlike existing products, which first de-multiplex the 40G stream into lower rate channels before performing analysis, the OTA-4400 works at the 40G stream, allowing for extensive capabilities beyond Layer 1 40G Bit Error Rate (BER) testing," said Jason Nutt, director of marketing for the OTA-4400. "This unique feature will accelerate the deployment of next-generation optical network systems at a cost the market can bear."
