Digital Lightwave Adds 100G OTN & 100G Ethernet Support to NIC Platform

CLEARWATER, FL--(Marketwire - March 8, 2011) - Digital Lightwave®, Inc., a leading provider of optical networking test equipment and technology, today announced the addition of 40Gbps and 100Gbps test functionality for SONET/SDH, OTN and Ethernet networks to its industry-leading NIC product line.

"The CSA 4100 module delivers powerful test capabilities for the latest 40G and 100G networks to the NIC Platform," said Tony Goodchild, Director of Product Management and Marketing. "With the addition of the CSA 4100, the NIC continues to provide the broadest capabilities of any test device on the market. The new module supports multilane 40G SONET/SDH, OTN & Ethernet and 100G OTN & Ethernet including our full multiplexing and test capabilities. Our customer-focused design and emphasis on usability allow us to deliver a device that makes testing 100G networks as easy as testing a legacy 10G network."

As carriers and network operators deploy 40G and 100G networks in order to deliver the bandwidth required for residential and enterprise services, this exceptionally robust module for the NIC Platform allows them to accurately test & characterize their networks in order to ensure timely service delivery.

The CSA 4100 module provides physical layer testing including unframed multi-lane BERT, PCS BERT, skew generation and measurement and full protocol testing such as overhead manipulation & capture, service disruption measurements, RTD, multi-stream Ethernet generation & test and RFC 2544 benchmarking.
