SAN JOSE, Calif. -- JDSU today announced new features for its FST-2802 Ethernet, IP and Fiber Channel tester that enable field technicians to more easily test managed services and FTTx deployments. This new release enables technicians to emulate voice, video and data traffic streams and independently monitor and measure each stream for quality of service (QoS) characteristics. In addition, the new software can be used to test point-to-multipoint links as well as perform basic monitoring tests on VLAN or IP networks.The product will be on display at CeBIT 2006 in Hannover, Germany, March 9-16 (booth B20, Hall 13).

Network operators are increasing their investments in IP/MPLS and metro Ethernet/Gigabit Ethernet technologies to enable triple-play (voice, data, and video) services that will drive new revenue streams. The FST-2802, targeted at field service technicians, has rapidly become a global market leader for GigE installation and maintenance and is approved by every major U.S. telecommunications carrier. The FST-2802 also incorporates ease-of-use for field technicians who have minimal data testing experience.

"Today, carriers are introducing different classes of service for triple-play carried over their networks, and their customers are becoming more sophisticated about their QoS demands," said Jerry Gentile, general manager of JDSU's telecommunication field services (TFS) Test and Measurement group. "JDSU anticipated this demand and now offers specific, proactive QoS test features in our FST-2802 that help effectively manage and troubleshoot the quality of triple-play services over IP networks."

By combining Ethernet, IP and fiber channel testing, the JDSU FST-2802 is the only test tool that features these broad testing capabilities in one platform.
