To support its nationwide deployment of a next-generation HSPA/LTE wireless network
A Tier 1 North American wireless operator has selected Canada-based EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering’s FTB-8120NGE multiservice test module and the FTB-7200D OTDR to support its nationwide deployment of a next-generation HSPA/LTE wireless network.
According to EXFO, housed in the compact, portable FTB-200 platform, its integrated test system provides front-line technicians with a full complement of tools needed to evaluate backhaul performance and emulate tiered-service offerings to establish baseline quality-of-service metrics that are critical to any service-level agreement.
EXFO claims that its FTB-8120NGE is a multiservice transport testing module, supporting SONET/SDH testing up to 2.5Gb/s, OTU1 (2.7G), ethernet up to GigE and 1/2/4G fiber channel testing, and is purpose-built for the growing deployments of ethernet-over TDM and ethernet-over-SONET/SDH services worldwide.
Etienne Gagnon, vice-president of product management and marketing at EXFO, said: EXFO’s leadership in innovative, multiservice deployment testing, integrated with our ethernet/IP service assurance platforms, gives operators the turnkey solution they need to ensure the performance of their next-gen backhaul network, while controlling capital investment and ensuring quality levels for customer service-level agreements.
