MORGAN HILL, Calif. -- Anritsu Corporation announces its new MD1260A 40/100G Ethernet Analyzer. The MD1260A 40/100G Ethernet Analyzer is an all-in-one measurement platform supporting the 40/100G Ethernet standard. It has built-in functions for generating the 40 and 100 Gbps Ethernet signals, needed for manufacturing quality inspection of transmission equipment and network installation, as well as offering a full range of versatile analysis functions for troubleshooting transmitted signals. It can measure the throughput, frame loss, BER and skew margin of 40/100G signals to quickly evaluate whether transmission equipment and network quality satisfy the requirements of the IEEE802.3ba standard.

Moreover, 40/100 Gbps Ethernet has been designed in cooperation with ITU-T to facilitate the spread of wide-area Ethernet and is compatible with the OTN (Optical Transport Network) standard, supporting the widely used OTU3/OTU4 (Optical channel Transport Unit) specification. Just one MD1260A unit is all that is needed to evaluate transmission equipment and networks supporting both 40/100G Ethernet and OTU3/OTU4. This makes it suitable for the best all-round measurements for next-generation, high-speed communications in one powerful, cost-effective, instrument. The full range of measurement interfaces and options can be tailored to match existing and future applications for maximum cost effectiveness.

40/100G Ethernet and OTU3/OTU4 are expected to become mainstream backbone network technologies for high-speed, large-capacity data services and Anritsu is launching this new instrument to assure the smooth spread of next-generation, high-speed network systems and services.
