US-based Sunrise Telecom has announced the latest addition to its STT product family, the STT 40G, a 40G/43G test system designed to verify the performance of new, high-bandwidth synchronous digital hierarchy, optical transport networks and SONET networks.
According to the company, communication service providers, including telcos, cable operators, wireless service providers, long haul and trans-oceanic (fiber) transport companies can deploy the STT 40G in central offices and key points of presence throughout their core networks as they bring 40G/43G links into service, troubleshoot and maintain their networks. With the STT 40G, network equipment manufacturers can arm their installation and maintenance crews to verify successful network element turn-up.
It is claimed that, unlike single purpose 40G testers, the STT platform allows users to test a range of ethernet up to 10GbE, SONET/SDH (synchronous digital hierarchy), xWDM and ROADM technologies in a single platform reducing overall CapEx investment.
Bahaa Moukadam, vice president of marketing at Sunrise Telecom, said: Unlike other 40G testers on the market today, the Sunrise Telecom STT 40G has been designed with an intense focus on extreme user friendliness while at the same time being able to perform comprehensive 40G/43G link performance and reliability testing enabling communications providers to deliver reliable services to their customers.
