Digital Lightwave Demonstrates Industry-Leading 40G and 100G Testing at ECOC 2011

GENEVA--(Marketwire - Sep 19, 2011) - Digital Lightwave today unveils their new 40G/100G test solution for the NIC Platform of test instruments at ECOC 2011 in Geneva. The new CSA 4100 (40Gbps and 100Gbps multi-lane with CFP interface) module expands the capabilities of the NIC to support the highest rates of testing for today's Ethernet, OTN and SONET/SDH networks.

"When the ECOC show opens today, the market for 40G/100G testing will have a new paradigm," said Robert F. Hussey, President and CEO. "From the release of our first product, we have changed the face of test instrumentation. Today's introduction is no different. For the earliest implementers, 40G/100G testing has been ridiculously expensive with severely limited feature sets. Digital Lightwave has been working with the leading-edge equipment vendors and network providers to make sure that our solution is the right product at the right time at the right price."

Using pluggable CFP modules, the CSA 4100 can support testing at SONET/SDH 40G (STL-256.4), OTN 43G (OTL-3.4) and 112G (OTL-4.10), as well as Ethernet 41G and 103G. For interface testing the CSA also supports unframed BERT testing at all rates and Framed PCS BERT for the Ethernet rates.

The CSA 4100 module and the entire Digital Lightwave product portfolio will be on display at the ECOC Exhibition in Geneva, Switzerland September 19-21. Visit us at booth 1615. Find out more about our 40G/100G test solutions at
