EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc. announced today the release of the AXS-200/855 Den/PDH/Ethernet Test Set, a handheld multiservice test offering that the company says increases technician efficiency by transitioning from E1/DS1, DS3 or PRI circuit testing to Ethernet/IP performance testing without swapping modules or test units.

 

“Service providers worldwide are continuously facing increased demand for higher-speed data services from both their business and wireless customers,” the company said in a release.

 

“While these service offerings are often deployed over next-generation Ethernet/IP networks, many existing services, including mobile backhaul and commercial voice/data services, are run over DS1/DS3, E1 and fractional E1/T1, and ISDN-based circuits.”

 

The challenge for operators today is to ensure these traditional services, along with next-generation Ethernet/IP services, can be tested seamlessly and efficiently by the same technician, using a single instrument to maximize service rollouts, the company added.
