EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc. announced today the launch of the FTB-8100 series for the installation, commissioning and maintenance of SONET/SDH networks.

Next-generation SONET/SDH technologies offer service providers a cost-effective means of introducing high-value, data-aware transport services on existing networks, the Quebec City-based company said in a release.

Designed for field, central office and lab test applications, the FTB-8100 series combines advanced DSn/PDH, SONET/SDH and next-generation SONET/SDH test functions, including generic framing procedure (GFP) and virtual concatenation (VCAT), inside a single platform.

The product line supports test interfaces ranging from DS1/E1 to OC-48/STM-16 with field-expandability to OC-192/STM-64 rates. Each test module includes a native Ethernet interface for inter-working with an FTB-8510 Packet Blazer Ethernet module or external Ethernet device.
