JDSU Adds 10GigE to ONT

MILPITAS, Calif. and PARIS -- JDSU today announced a new 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) module for its ONT-506 and ONT-512 product lines designed to help labs and manufacturers verify GigE network element reliability, interoperability and quality of service (QoS). The new module will be on display this week at Broadband World Forum Europe 2006 in Paris, France, booth 7002, where the ONT platform is also an IEC InfoVision Award finalist for 2006 in the Network Core Innovation and Advances category.

The ONT-506/512 10 GigE module is part of JDSU's industry-leading Metro Ethernet test portfolio, which includes the most comprehensive range of Ethernet instruments, systems and software required by manufacturers, labs and operators to successfully develop and deliver next-generation broadband services.

With the addition of the 10 GigE module, the ONT-506/512 supports the test needs of manufacturers and labs worldwide by offering Ethernet modules for complete testing across all major interfaces in the 10 Gigabit-per-second range (including 10 GigE LAN, 10G SONET/SDH, 10.7G OTN and 10G Ethernet-over-SONET/SDH, or EoS). Later this year, JDSU will offer a software upgrade for the 10 GigE module that provides 10 GigE WAN test features.

“The emergence of triple play services, especially IPTV, is pushing manufacturers and labs to provide reliable Metro Ethernet products to market and ensure QoS,” said Bernhard Mueller, general manager of JDSU’s optical transport Communications Test and Measurement group. “JDSU’s ONT platform eliminates the need for multiple test platforms for research and development in the manufacturer labs and service verification testing in the operator labs, further reducing the time spent verifying new revenue-generating network systems and services like 10 GigE.”
