AGILENT Technologies has released a test solution that provides accurate and repeatable jitter with ITU-T O.172 jitter accuracy maps and SONET/SDH (NG SONET) capability in a single instrument.
The enhancements to the OmniBER optical transport network (OTN) family of communications performance analysers reduce the cost of ownership for chipset designers, network equipment manufacturers and service providers.
The OmniBER OTN now supports interface rates up to 2.5Gb/s and 10Gb/s. It combines generic framing procedure, virtual concatenation, Ethernet payload and link capacity adjustment scheme measurement capabilities with accurate and repeatable jitter. It also provides 0.172 jitter accuracy maps for measuring 10Gb/s SONET/SDH and G.709 OTN jitter.
The OmniBER OTN provides ITU 0.172 Appendix VII-based accuracy maps as standard on jitter products, plus a receiver-only fixed accuracy error of less than 15 mUI at 10Gb/s. This aids conformance to the 100 mUI industry standard.
