Xena's new M2SFP+T test module boasts advanced timing features

Combined, these features make it simple to validate and demonstrate the accuracy of SyncE networks.

Xena Networks, the global leader in Gigabit Ethernet Test Equipment Price Performance, announces the official release of M2SFPT and M2SFP+T test modules, as well as its new Xena1564 application for testing according to the ITU-T Y.1564 standard.

The new test modules are the first phase in Xena's strategy to develop a series of premium test modules with advanced feature sets for specialized customer needs. The new Xena1564 application is a free addition to Xena's existing suite of software and is designed to make it easy for customers to test synchronous Ethernet as described in the Y.1564 standard.

"The new test modules have advanced timing features," explains Jacob Nielsen, CEO for Xena Networks. "These include selectable transmit line rates from SMA inputs or Rx recovered line clocks, jitter attenuation, and the ability to measure the Rx recovered link clocks. Combined, these features facilitate the comparison and calculation of TIE/MTIE statistics on other equipment, making is simple to validate and demonstrate the accuracy of SyncE networks. Looking ahead we plan to add more premium features such as more streams, modifiers, and larger capture buffers which will boost the functionality and value of these test modules."

The new Xena1564 application is for testing according to the ITU-T Y.1564 standard, and makes it easy for customers to test, troubleshoot and sign off on today's increasingly advanced Carrier Ethernet services for both bursty and continuous-rate traffic. It lets service providers show they have implemented the proper service configuration and performance from User Network Interface (UNI) to UNI, so that the SLA matches the bandwidth profile and the promised class of service that the customer has ordered.

The decision to develop the Xena1564 application is part of Xena's overall strategy to further strengthen its software offerings.

"Providing a wide range of free gigabit ethernet test and measurement software to all our customers is an important part of our value proposition," says Jacob Nielsen. "We want to give customers the tools they really need, while ensuring our software is robust and very easy to use."
